I have a 2008 GTS, but not an ACR. It's a brutal car, uncomfortable, tight, horrible road manners, big grabby tires that feel every uneven spot in the road, plastic interior, and hot. It's also...

No rust. Runs good. Dash is good. Car looks good in the photos.

I certainly wish someone would make a reproduction of the originals for early cars. How hard could it be? Looks like resin & wood fibers.

Don't worry if you lose some of that factory air. I was lucky enough to score some from a dealer years ago. Although it's no longer in the original bulk container, I can assure you that this is the...

In 1978, I was driving a Schwinn Apple-Krate, with the 5-speed stick shift, drum brakes, and a rear slick. Kept that silly bike until I was in my late 20's & regrettably sold it for some beer money....

door doesn't open

Last summer, I had to replace the driver's door handle mechanism after it broke. Getting the door open was a bear, but somehow I eventually got it.
Well, the problem happened again; I can't open the...

Yours was fortunate enough to slip thru the federalization process without the required blocky bumperettes. IMHO, it's so much cleaner looking, and to me, more desirable. But it only "works" for Euro...

What about sound deadening material (Dynamat, Hushmat, etc.)? Has anyone used that together with a vapor barrier, or maybe as a replacement for one?

I don't know about that. I'm 50, and to me the cars of the 60's & 70's were as much a part of my formative years (high school) as the cars of the 80's. When I remember the school parking lot back...
