I'd look into fixing the rusted brake lines ASAP.

Re: The Z26 you all wanted to see

Frame rot??? Say it isn't so! That is such a nice looking car.
BTW, I have a spoiler stoplight lens. Not in mint condition but pretty good.
What is it worth to you?

Re: Torque Converter Lockout Operation

It's under the side cover of the trans. I did it on my daughter's 90. It was tricky to get the cover off because it's close to the frame but I was able to jack the engine up enough to do it. Once the cover is off, the solenoid is pretty easy to change. In my case, I cut the wires and re soldered the...

Re: My new baby

Looks like a really clean low mileage car. Nice find. I think that car was on FB, in Oregon area?
Too far away or I might have bought it.

Re: what did you do to your ride today?

I bought some Douglas tires from Walmart. They get good reviews and are supposed to be made by Goodyear. My old tires were Goodyear and about 11 years old. I read they had recalls for cracking awhile back. I'll put these tires on in the spring on my 88 since I put the 88's Z-26 wheels on my 96 and I...

Re: Back to Berettas after 15+ years

Corrosion on the ECM pins was what I was thinking but yours looks good. I hope you find the problem.
Thats a nice looking car and solid on the underside. I like the color. I had a 92 that looked just like it.

Re: what did you do to your ride today?

The rockers on the 96 are rusted out on the bottom, shock towers are OK but the frame rail on the gas tank side is bad.
I doubt it's worth putting too much into it to save it. If something really nice came up, I might be tempted.
I have the 88GT with 30k on it so I will still own a Beretta.

Re: what did you do to your ride today?

I'm replacing the front parking brake cable. Raybestos BC94603 I got it from Rock auto. The damn thing is too long. I don't have enough adjustment to tighten it up. I guess I have to pull it back out and see if I can mod an end to make it shorter. I bought way back in July so I can't return it but ...

Stink bugs!

Our country has imported Chinese stink bugs and it's that time of year when they look for winter shelter. They stink a bit but not like skunk. It's smell is kind of like rancid oil with pine. I was working on my 88 when I kept smelling the bug's smell. I look down into the alternator and this little...

Re: The '90s called...

Oh man, sorry you wrecked your truck.
The truck looked solid, not much rust that I can see.
But you weren't hurt so that is the most important thing.
Also, no ticket from the cops for failing to reduce speed to avoid an accident?

Re: From backyard to Berettafest

The car looks very nice. Do you really need straight pipes and no cat to go a little bit faster? IMHO, too many people take off pollution controls and run straight pipes, fart can mufflers etc. They drive around polluting and make all kinds of noise for miles around like they are living in a vacuum....
