  1. For those of us in some of those Facebook groups, I think one of the things we could do is reply to questions with links to threads here that answer said questions, instead of answering them directly in Facebook. This should bring some traffic here, and hopefully some of that traffic will see "hey, there's a ton of other useful info here that's alot easier to sift through than Facebook is". And for image embeds, I created this thread a while back for using Imgur for image and video hosting. Really the hardest part is getting the account setup (which really isn't hard). Once that's done, it's just uploading the picture to Imgur>copying the link>pasting it here; the forum software will automatically embed photos before you even click Post:

  2. Hello! My name is Cameron and I bought an 88 Starion last year which is fairly modified and, I have been told, previously raced by prior owners. I live in New Orleans, Louisiana and recently graduated High School and soon to move onwards to college. Nice to meet you all and here’s to many more Starquest miles! Cheers! - Loub

  3. There's also some people, unfortunately, that just aren't on the boards at all. I know 4 people I can think of off the top of my head, all in my general area, with nice, show worthy, running Starquests. I know that sounds crazy for how rare these cars are, but only one of them has a screenname here and they're not an active poster. So, there's that too - some people just aren't into sharing what they know and contributing. I agree with what others have said too - we need to find a way to loose the ads here.

  4. Facebook is responsible for this, and I'ts a horrible platform. all the knowledgeable old timers aren't on social media, so all the younger guys asking questions ask on facebook don't get quality answers. Theres no more group buys anymore...i really miss the old days on SQC.

  5. It's got more than you think, you have to mess with the URLs a little bit to get it to work, I go over it a bit here:

  6. Go figure. The most active post in years is about site activity. We have voiced donating to the site many times over the years. I fear at this point Bob (Ryddler) just isn't into it anymore, yet doesn't want to release the reigns. The hayday of this site was a glorious thing! If only we had 25% of that back. I post on the FB once in a while and try to help out, but it's sometimes too little among the sea of ignorance and keyboard mechanics. I think a lot of people go there just for more traffic. I'm definitely guilty of posting a pic with a quick question to try and get a quick response. I use imageshack for pics, so I haven't tried the drag and drop with the new setup. LOVE LIVE THE FORUMS!

  7. I'll ask him. It was mentioned in the past to Bob but nothing came of it. He now hosts the site from his house after investing in what was needed to do it. The outside host is what screwed us on our lost information by shutting down without proper notice. I'm with you about contributing for the costs of maintaining without ads. Jimmy

  8. Every picture I’ve tried to drag in gets blocked due to file size. I have to get it hosted through Photobucket.

  9. It doesn't work unless your picture is highly compressed.

  10. Being able to easily post pictures would probably assist with this. Facebook makes it way too easy to just upload massive picture files easily.

  13. I’m in a mess. I have a fresh un assembled engine that I could sell. The block has been bored +.020 and decked . There are brand new +.020 Wiseco pistons and rings, rod and main bearings. New, mechanical non-jet head has been modified at the head bolt bosses w/hardened washer inserts for the ARP head studs. Rods are resized, and fitted with ARP bolts. Entire recip assy has been balanced. If anyone is interested in this, I am in Alabama. I currently have another project vehicle w/a 5.3 LS and a 4l60e that could go in if I move the 2.6. Let me know if interested.

  14. We had a GB years ago that Niko set up. I don't know the vendor he used but they are nice quality floor mats and they had both auto and manual options.

  17. That looks right. I ran them on my 88 starion in the mid 90s. They were readily available in our sizes and affordable. It's refreshing to see people starting to try to take these cars back to pure original. It's not an easy feat!

  18. The reason why it is there is for the right hand drive cars sold to the Asian and Eu markets, the wiper motor is mounted on the driver's side. It also gives access to the wiper mechanism in the cowl.

  19. Same story for me, but the year was 2000 and I couldn't legally drive it until 2001. I remember my friend going with me to drive for me on the three hour drive to Allentown PA and the car overheating a half hour from home.

  20. Uhhhh.. I’m way passed that. The entire engine is pulled, apart, and at the machine shop waiting on their diagnosis of a suspect cylinder. The “old” head is now waiting on the new non-jet head that will be here tomorrow. When that gets here, I’ll take it to the shop and have those inserts installed, and ck or replace the exhaust valves if they are not properly heat treated to withstand the heat of a turbo application. My fairly radical DIY conversion of the factory intake to MPI/bigger throttle body is just about done. And both fenders are close to done, or done, with one actually on, and the one that hit the ground ready for paint now that the paint has finally arrived.

  21. I've been following about the development of these on IG as he's been posting about them. It's not for me, but I'm just glad someone out there is still developing stuff for this platform. I have more than a few Mookeeh parts on my car.
