@WasGTIthenGTOthenNOVAthenGTInowA4 The Daytona has stayed in the family through both of the big boom periods in classic cars (inflation adjusted the insurance value in 1987 was higher than it is now). It's not going anywhere 🙂
I would say the ones on BaT tend to be at the lower end of the market though. Really good ones will sell privately (and off market) for more.
@drVanTraveler interesting in the U.K. the XE seemed to come with a quite a confusing choice of specs with either a standard or R dynamic body style and either body style had S, SE or HSE trim packages. All of that with a choice of three engines a diesel four plus a petrol four in two horsepower tunes. However when you dug into it the base S package came with everything you might need so the SE and HSE were not really worth the upgrade. I ended up buying an S R Dynamic with the Diesel engine. I wanted a petrol but the dealer couldn’t get me a petrol when I wanted it.
Wife leaves the top down pretty much all the time, but she does park the car in the garage (there's lot of nights we forget to close the garage door, and also the front door). My truck and car are parked in the shop or outside, both unlocked. Rural living has it's advantages.
Yep. It helps, and yet I still miss stuff when I am rushing through these smaller builds. I am very careful on the big builds because many times it is very difficult to go back and add or correct a piece after you are 150 steps past it.
Resistors usually increase in resistance as they start to fail. It's most common for them to fail open. These look like metal film resistors. There is a spiral of metal film around a ceramic core. The windings on that spiral can thin out over time, increasing the resistance. The thin area will then heat up more, eventually opening completely.
@mercedes_500e_w124 I wish I could buy one now, because you know they'll only go up in value. I know 5 years ago you could get one for 30k grand, Which is impressive because they were like 40k new, a car only loosing 25% of its value over 10 years is pretty good, but now 45k is "cheap".
It is funny that by the nature of the car, 40-50,0000 miles is a "high mileage" example
