    Top Rubber Bumper Melted

    I was cleaning the top and found another melted rubber bumper. This one is behind the seats under the tonneau cover and only visible when the top is stopped midway in it's travel. It looks like it may hold the top in place when it is lowered. No idea what the part number is for this one. I've...

    Two Allantes and one XLR attended and we had a great time Sunday driving out US290 to Chappell Hill for the bluebonnet festival and then on to Roundtop for a stop before returning home. We didn't see as many bluebonnets (or Allantes) as in the past, but did get some pictures.

    New Intercooler Pump

    After sitting in traffic on a hot day I noticed that the acceleration of my V seemed sluggish and slower than normal. I traced the problem to the intercooler pump not running and properly cooling the air entering the engine from the supercharger. After moving the connector around on the back...

    I Have One

    Almost 150,000 miles, transmission going, lost 3rd gear, but it still runs and drives. In fact, I drove it 200 miles to Galveston and back last Friday and had a blast. Look forward to everytime I have the opportunity to get it out of the garage. Definately a different machine from the XLR.

I found someone that can recreate window stickers for the XLR, but they do not have an example of the XLR-V sticker so they can incorporate any differences. Would someone have an...

    Folding Top Fluid

    I noticed that the fluid level is below the minimum line on the pump and it makes some noise at the end of it's cycle. I found GM p/n 89022748 for the fluid and a container (not sure what size) lists for about $72. Does anyone know what this fluid is? Standard hydraluic fluid? Should I buy a...
