Re: 1979 trunk stuck

Try your Spare Ignition Key if you have one, lube with graphite powder if not. The Valet Key won’t open the trunk. Possibly it’s the central locking module.. Is the system operational on drvrs, pass doors & fuel flap?

Re: Old Passport radar detector - still usable?

Looks to be a Vintage 2700 model, 1980’s Classic!
I’ve a couple of V1 units and use them daily. Valentine also releases software updates sorta regularly.
The New Passport & Escort models both receive good reviews as well.
I’d test it just for the hell of it..

Just saying. 😏

Nice!
Appears the “Box” Bobbo mentioned contains Ignition Components, Coil or Coils and Stand-Alone System as the Dizzy has vanished & its port is Capped...
Possibly.

Re: Trying to find the nice front bumper tuck thread...

Not sure that’s the same e24 in Sac/Elk Grove..
Missing TRX’s, rear spoiler, sport seats & bumbers appear original, may be mistaken though.
$6500. Could be a great price if as advertised.
