  1. You just add in noise. I'm thinking the sound the Vipers in Battlestar Galactica made. LOL. I guess for me it was a case of parts dwindling and what do you do if you want to keep the body on the road. I guess another ICE swap would work though.
  2. I'd be glad to buy it, damaged tail light and all. 😁 But seriously have you checked www.starquestparts.net?
  3. Thanks for all the information everyone. It's not something I would do anytime soon and even then likely only if all ICE options were gone and I wanted a big project. I don't even have a StarQuest yet so it's all hypothetical.
  4. I wondered about battery location. This is out of my wheelhouse, that's why I asked. And I wasn't sure what sort of range you'd end up with. Thanks for the feedback.
  5. Some of you probably do major overhauls on StarQuests. I'm curious how difficult it would be to convert one to EV. Not necessarily something I'd want to have done right now but as parts get more difficult to source and (hopefully) crate motors (like Ford's) and batteries come down in cost, it might be a cool way to keep them going?
  6. Thanks guys. You confirmed my suspicions.
  7. I remember when these were selling new, there was an optional digital gauge package called Technica or something. Digital gauges were relatively new so it certainly seemed pretty cool to me at the time. Now, browsing around auctions and pics on the internet, I have yet to see a car equipped with this package. Did it have a very low take rate or did those dash clusters just not last and they've all been replaced with the standard gauges? I'm not really hoping to find a car equipped with the package, just curious why I haven't run across one.
  8. Thanks all. Didn't mean to compare my LeBaron GTS, that was just the car I had at the time. I did like it though, especially that it was a hatchback. I think I'm looking to have something I'd drive around the area and on the nearby Blue Ridge Parkway. I wouldn't want one more than lightly modified. I'm definitely not looking for a major project car. They are extremely rare in our area. I can't think of the last time I saw one. There was a nice one that sold for about $15K in an auction a couple hours from me. Probably should have taken a shot on that one.
  9. The Conquest (I think it was built as a Dodge at the time) first came onto my radar in college in the late 80s/early 90s. It was the best looking car I'd ever seen. There was a woman in our apartments in Raleigh, NC that had one--in red, of course--that tempted me (the car, not the woman) every time I saw it. At the time, I had a LeBaron GTS that probably only those of you who are longtime MOPAR enthusiasts might remember. I loved my car, but the Conquest was just drop-dead gorgeous. The woman eventually moved, I eventually graduated, and a Conquest would never find my driveway. In fact, I never even sat or rode in one. But it's stuck with me ever since. Now I'm at the age where you get nostalgic for the cars you loved but never had in your younger days. This one remains at the top of my list. The "Bring a Trailer" website really brought it back into the forefront of my mind because there I discovered people were selling these cars in, sometimes, pretty good condition and relatively low miles. So, now I'm here to lurk and learn, and keep watching for an opportunity to find a late-model Conquest to recapture a little of my youth. Thanks to all of you who keep these cars on the road and keep the community alive.
