Ah.. Just wanted to apologize and tell you all that i miss you, and hope i can come back... OH! Wait...that's somebody else.. nee..

But while i have your attention, there are two quick points i wish to make to all my bud's..and you know it's a great world when you can look at all the members and honestly say that.. ah shucks... Laughing..

Today i noticed i didn't have a "profile" up.. I had one when i joined, have no idea how i messed that up, but apparently did.. So being the upstanding guy i am i posted one.. In the process of doing this, i use for the first time some of the features on our little "home page" things like "dashboard" etc.. while doing that i hit the friends button.. and here are these request for friends things... Please know that you were not purposely ignored, i honestly had never pushed the friends icon before.. And for what its worth i don't know how to make the request thing granted.. Obviously its granted.. and if I hurt anyone's feelings.. (have this mental image of someone putting in a friends request and waiting, and waiting, sheesh that ass hole..)

Guys.. Some of us oldsters just arent hep to the whole social networking thing.. i wouldn't join myface or whatever it is if they would have me.. So honestly excuse this as my ineptitude..

OH!!...and a big horay for all.. greg now has spell check.. i've almost broken it, and expect to be charged extra by google but it's worth it to turn the disclaimer light off... su amigo greg.

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

Hey snake

I just happen to sell parts for parts plus, and they are right the
trans shift cables for that car are long discontinued by GM.
your only hope is the wrecking yards, door panels are also a problem
because they don't tend to wear real well.

Problem is that the car isn't old enough yet for anyone to offer
reproduction units yet.

Thanks pal. for some reason advance autos can get all engin parts some body part but shifter cables and door panels are as rare as an amazon riding a unicorn. All the junk yards here are hauling off vehicals to the crusher. any junk yards you know that may have them I will buy them from ya hampster and even pay shipping. These are desperate times for me belive it or not and I need my car fixed to get to college and for work. Let me know soon pal.

friend button

Greg, and everybody else.
If people on here ask for prayer or to share their joy, they get it.
I for one dont need a button or counter.

Workin on it snake

Haven't heard back yet, here is the email they sent:

Hello hamp woodside,Your parts request was sent to numerous salvage yards. If one or more ofthese salvage yards can help you, you will be contacted by them via emailwith further information regarding your request

checking on door panels as well, I had an 89 beretta, bought it new in 89, it's panels were grey, I assume yours were as well.

Hamp

yes mine are or were grey lol drivers side is busted power window swithc is bustes on the door aswell but I dont plan to fix that switch. I appreciate the help a lot hamp. I hope you find somthinf most junk yards are hauling everything to crusher every day I hear. My old trade school teacher said the shifter cables from 5 speed cavilers will work to but didnt specify what engines sizes I assume that the cable lengths vary in size depending on engine sizes like 2.0,2.8,3.1 ect.

Cable length is all the same, they all used the same 5spd trans. Teacher was correct, cavalier, corsica even some of the pontiacand olds FWD cars, same tranny and shifter, so chances are good bro.
