No $$$ interest. Sounds like an old car guy has this. Extra parts, even.

Nicely optioned!

I wish I had a "need" for it.

The exhaust leak means the head has to come off, exhaust bolts will be broken.

The seat covers.... Ugh.  WTH?  Really?

It'd be a good driver until the seats can be "corrected".

Wonder what the toggle switch is for under the left side of the dash is for...

Keep these coming Barry!  Thanks!   8)

Laurie, don't you wish you could have "all" of them? There's an '86 Seville 70 miles or so from me with electrical problems for $500. What on earth would I need that for? But I'll probably still drive up and look at it when the weather breaks.

Keep plugging away with your research. I have a friend in Boston that I spoke to the other day, and I guess you folks really got hammered last week. I need a part for my LH door and he happens to work in that suburb. But to date, the guy hasn't returned his calls to see the part. I guess I'll call him again this evening and tell him that all he needs to do is take the part off and my friend will mail it to me.

Stay warm and dry. Spring will arrive one of these days. BW

Boston, points west and south got hammered by snowappalooza. The Cape (me) got an inch of slush.
50 degrees and heavy rain now, they'll have some big flooding problems. What shop near Boston does
your friend work for/in? You can never have to many contacts.

I'm a lot of things, greedy isn't one of them. I am so blessed, so grateful for this Fleetwood, it means the world to me.
Laurie!

Laurie, My friend is Lester Wax, one of our former Presidents. He lives in Sharon and is probably in the book. He works in Bridgewater. If you haven't already joined CLC, you really need to. Our Directory is invaluable, especially when you're on the road. Our roadside assistance is not as prompt as AAA or OnStar, but you can usually find someone to help you if you have a problem/breakdown while touring.

Barry I appreciate that, but I am one independent woman. I'd never impale myself on a complete stranger in such an instance. I have AAA Premier, they'll get us home eventually then its Scott's problem. But thank you!

Independent or not, Laurie, when you join our group, your first impulse is to help. When going to the last Boston meet, I was sitting at the light waiting to go on the Mass Turnpike from the NY Thruway and saw up past the intersection, a pair of 1949 Cadillacs. I pulled over on the shoulder ahead of them and asked if they needed help. They were fine, but gave a wave and a "We're OK."

All AAA does is pull up and ask to see your card. With us, you might get someone who actually knows what they're doing and at least some genuine sympathy. Your car is your "introduction." In fifty four years of belonging to the CLC I can count on one hand's fingers members that I'd not care to associate with again. So don't put all your faith in AAA. You've just touched the tip of the ice berg in what the CLC will mean to you over the years to come.
