Default The best $40 score.

Mini RPM gauge for my NA 245
and
Snow Scoops in preparation for another WI winter.



I have the chance to score a new MSD Blaster coil and new IPD steel braided brake lines for about $100.
There's a sucker born every minute and crispy cash talks.

Just that for 40? I just got a 242door, GT interior minus front seats, dual rounds, one extra bulb, mini tach, a 940 turbo egg crate grille, one crackless 90+ turbo mani, and one 90+ turbo mani with 1cm long crack for $72.

But I was able to take the scoops from a complete car for sale locally, the guy has a huge stash of parts. You have too much anyway... send it across the lake.

If you still need it there's a GT with good passenger seat and door cards in the Charlotte Pull-a-Part. I got the flathood and someone else got the grille and surrounds but everything else is still there.

Not bad.
I loved the snow scoops, they looked great and kept little itty bits of birch tree leaves out of my vents.

I don't think It's a GT. just a GL that got GT parts. Front springs aren't thick like a GT

I want teh flathoods

Yeah I was looking real hard at it and a lot of stuff didn't seem to fit. It did have a B cam though ;)

Carrying that hood was a b*tch because I didn't get a wheelbarrow I just happened to see it sitting there since it wasn't on their inventory list. I'm unsure whether I'm going to keep it or not...time will tell. If I do decide to get rid of it and you still need one I'll give you dibs though.

yay I have to go back and get the seat skin, passenger door, and valve cover. I got the doors from the green 242GT they had. It's no longer there :-/ it was well picked from.

There is a white 740 or 940 wagon that had a 90+ on it. I left the turbo it was a 13c no shaft play.

I dont think those snow scoops will suit your wagon. I'll be kind and take them off your hands for you. Hell, I'll even pay you for the postage so you can get rid of them quick...

The scoops are lovely... I heard there is a OEM set of wires for the small RPM gauge that goes from the back of the large clock to the small rpm cluster. I've seen a custom 3 wire setup... Red and white wire... yaddah yaddah. I plan on having this thing after my Ohio trip tomorrow and Sunday.
