  1. What percentage of people knew what it was? It's been well less than 50% in my case but this might have been a more aware crowd.
  2. We could be going down to Kiawah in the coming weeks. Wife is bugging me to go and I don't like going in the summer. Ballpark speaking, what part of Charleston are you in? North side, south, etc...
  3. I'll check back next time I'm that way, but I imagine it will have found a home by then.
  4. I'm down that way every 6-8 weeks but I don't know what I'd do with it. 🤔
  5. I'm just uphill from you in the Hickory-Morganton area. My sister-in-law lives in Mooresville. Welcome to the StarQuest community. There are a number of businesses providing parts for these cars, though some things are really a challenge to find. I've got a project 1989 Fiji Blue Conquest that may be in slightly better condition than yours but we're going through the same process--get it running mechanically, work on the interior, and address some bodywork damage and paint. Seeing other people start essentially the same project as me helps me stay motivated to finish mine, so keep us updated on your progress!
  6. Congratulations and I think I followed this auction. Looking forward to watching your project progress
  7. Sweet! Got any tips for the underhood insulation? Can you buy it and cut to fit?
  8. This doesn't have the Technica package, but may be a starting point for you? https://www.ebay.com/itm/266760416377?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=mX-ZRgC0TGC&sssrc=2047675&ssuid=EheusCIJRmC&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY Seems to be in decent shape? EDIT: Sorry, I just saw you said Starion. I thought you were good with either.
  9. Thanks, Kev. When the key is turned, there is nothing, dead silence, though 10-15 minutes earlier it did recrank when stalling. The guy I got it from also mentioned the fusable links so that's where I'll begin. It's on coilovers and rides pretty stiffly. Combined with some not great roads, something easily could have been jostled loose.
  10. No worries, Gibbon. One of my first posts was to ask what the best engine swap would be. They were chasing me out of town with pitchforks and torches! 😄 I think/hope that they've forgiven me.
  11. Gibbon, but in that case wouldn't it recrank once I was stopped and level?
  12. I hope this doesn't overlap the similar thread but searching for this exact problem was challenging. I took out the modified 87 Conquest on Easter Sunday. My subdivision is kind of hilly and it stalled as I came down a hill and made a sharp left turn (my foot was on the clutch) at low speed. It was just like it was turned off, not like I'd gone too slow in first gear without the clutch depressed. It cranked back up before I'd come to a complete stop. Then, maybe 15 minutes later, it stalled again making a sharp left turn at low speed. This time it wouldn't recrank and really wouldn't do anything (nothing lit up, not attempt to turn over) when the key was turned. I do get the "key in ignition" noise when I open the door. Jump starting did nothing. The battery is just a couple months old. I flipped through my Chilton's manual while I waited for the tow truck but found lots of possibilities. I was hoping someone might know what to try first. I imagine it was just coincidence that it was a left turn that stalled me, but the first turn (when it first stalled) was pretty similar to how I turn off my (kind of steep) driveway onto the road, and it didn't stall there, it was 15-20 seconds later when I made another sharp, low speed left.

  14. I've moved two (from Steve as a matter of fact) on Uhaul trailers. We backed one on, which created another issue with the angle of the front. I fortunately have an air suspension and I put it on the highest setting which improved the angle of the ramps and we got it on safely. The other car already had damage to the air dam (I had a spare I was going to use) so we didn't worry about it. I will say that it towed really well behind my truck. I only knew it was back there when I checked my mirrors--though I'm pretty cautious when towing so that was fairly often. Be prepared for a lot of people wondering what on earth that awesome looking car you're towing is. LOL.
  15. It's only letting me upload files that are 0.2kb in size so I'll just write that it is SEM Trim Black Ultra Matte 49133. The other paint is Dupli-Color Trim & Bumper Paint with Fade-X Technology. I'll try your suggestion, BKB94. Thanks!
