What kind of phone, what carrier and I might be able to help.
Being in the VW/AUDI world, you'd be amazed at what kind of contacts I have.

Well I know that the headlights aren't that expensive, just gotta get the right ones.
Those Chocolates are nice phones. I had a blue one. Upgraded to the Storm when they were new and loved it until OS 5 came out. TOTALLY ruined the phone! The more I txt the slwoer it got until I was literally waiting 30 seconds for one character to pop up. That got exchanged for a Droid.
I have my old blue Chocolate if you want it since I've been with Verizon/Airtouch since 93.

Good weekend all.
Just wanted to show you what I just purchased.

I think this would look a lot better in the car rather than the standard 80 MPH cluster don't you?
Now.. Onto a right headlight.
raptor, I haven't forgotten about your phone, Things got extremely busy for me this past week. Pics of the phone coming soon.

Nice set of cars you have there, and a nice bit of history I didn't know about, so I learned something.

Anyways, welcome to GMForum.com. As you've probably noticed, we have a lot of really cool guys and girls here, just trying to help wherever we can. Feel free to ask any questions and we'll be more than glad to help you out. Hope you enjoy your Buick. Those are really nice cars that really go for a long, long time.

Well thanks! The yellow one would have been nicer had someone not rear ended me.. but then I wouldn't have been able to get the Buick either.

Went out, started the Buick. no problem. Go to the wrecking yard to get parts for the VW'* no problem. Stop off to fuel up and go to start it. nothin! Had the wrecking yard owner come out (Helps to know the owner personally) and he jumped the car no problem. He also saw on the box how much the alternator was putting out. He said it put out 11.3 volts and should be putting out 14. I called my friend Geoff to tell him and he said he would get a hold of his grandfather (the guy I bought the car from).
Got the car home, and Geoff called me back. The alternator is only a month old and grandpa still has the receipt for it. He will call the garage that put the alternator in and get it replaced. I thought that was really nice of him to help me out like that.
So.. thats the story for now.
