thanks, yours won't open either.

They do not contact by site, email.

Phone line says NO, not unless you buy something from us.

Makes me want to puke up a bunch of money for their parts.....

Customer service ?

You can only expect customer service unless you are a customer, correct? What are you trying to do?

All I wanted is to see their photos on their site instead of red Xs.

Their VISA pictures come in clear.
Guess they want my money first.. Good way to drum up customers.

We have a website but you can't see it until you buy something..... I'm an old putz....

Thanks for the site written technical info.

NO TownCars have bags in the front.

You must have a Continental front wheel drive (big Taurus)

Gary, thanks for your help. The site is good reading.

At salvage yard from a wreck I found a low mileage pump for $ 25 and replaced it in 20 minutes.

Also got 4 mag wheels with brand new tires for $ 120.

And a perfect color deck lid for $ 100 for a friend's TC........ (Did you ever notice how so many old people back across the street into their mailboxes?.)

Deal?

As a side benefit I met a customer there from 100 miles away who is heavy into FEs and Comets.

Fun afternoon.
