Holy crap. Glad to hear you made it in one piece through this (realizing I'm long overdue).


Just curious to know if you pinched a hole in your drivers seat as you flew through the air.

Hi Webmeister :) I know I haven't been around here much at all lately but just wanted to say "Thank You" for keeping this place running. It's nice to come back once and a while and see all of the new members and reading their experiences about what I still feel is the best car I have ever owned. I t...

I fill up with a tank of 91 octane about once every 10 or 12 fill ups. No true reason for it other than I feel it helps to keep things clean inside, which I know is completely irrational.

A buddy of mine took his F-150 to a Jiffy Rip-Off Lube and they didn't put the screw back in his oil pan. He got about 50 miles away before the warning light came on. They've got an enormous turnover rate on their employees and many of them, as I have observed in the past, wouldn't know the differen...

Since hitting 30k miles, my MPG has gone up by about 10%-15%. No changes in my driving habits, either. I'm averaging 24-25 City/27-29 HWY.

Mine has about a half-second of spark knock on acceleration between about 25 and 40 MPH. Only 93 octane would fix it. I took it to the dealer a couple of times before they pointed to the owner's manual page that this is normal. Yeah, I think it's BS as well, but that's about all I can do about it. ...

Welcome back Toadman. JC2 has departed.

Did we lose him to the dark side? :shock:


I saw where Len had taken over the posting of news articles. JC2 always had those 'catchy" titles.

I've had these on for a couple of years now and love them. The last time I went in for an oil change, the technician came out and complimented me on them. He liked not having the kick stand in the way.

You could also try www.wooddashexperts.com and see if they have any woodgrain door moldings that would match your 500. Good luck.

I used this vendor for my door pieces. While they weren't an exact match, they were close enough for me.

The lines of the car look OK. But whomever did the front and tail ends should be taken out into the street and shot.

My jaw dropped when I saw the portholes. And, believe it or not, I hate them. They look like front wheel-well door handles. I do like the new front end design and the new tail lights - both very Montegolike. It looks like they skipped over the interior. Overall, it appears like a typical minimalist ...
