in regards to selling junk cars in Dallas and what to look for in a junk car.
Replacing a junk cars distributor cap and rotor:
The distributor and rotor send nigh-voltage current to the spark plugs. Both should be checked periodically for wear or damage. Remove the rubber or plastic protective cover over the distributor cap with your fingers, or if it has fasteners, use a screwdriver. Release the cap from the distributor with a screwdriver or a nut driver; the screws will remain in the cap. Or, if two spring clips hold the cap in place, push them outward to free the cap.
Turn over the distributor cap and inspect it. Check for signs of deterioration: burns or pits on the metal contacts, and carbon tracks on the cap. Next, twist the cable boots off their towers one at a time and look for carbon tracks and cracks or other damage to the cap. If the cap is in good condition, clean it inside and out with a dry rag. If the cap is faulty, replace both the cap and the rotor.
With the new cap installed, hold the old cap and cables beside it. Remove the boost of one cable at a time from the old cap and fit it snugly onto the corresponding tower on the new cap.
The rotor receives high voltage from the coil at the center post of the distributor cap and distributes the power to the spark plug cables as it rotates. Grasp the rotor as shown and lift it straight off the distributor shaft. Inspect the rotor for pits, carbon tracks or other visible damage. If the rotor is faulty, replace both the rotor and the distributor cap. Place the new rotor on the distributor post, rotate it until they are aligned and gently slide the rotor down. Some rotors have retaining screws; remove the screws, position the new rotor and screw it in place.More repair tips
As the Stars celebrate 20 years in Texas, it's time to look back on one of the greatest Dallas Stars players of all time: The Eagle.
Looking back, it's tough to articulate just how much Eddie Belfour meant to DFW in the latter part of the 1990's.
Andy Moog had long been a fan favorite, the only starting goaltender the Stars had known since the North Stars moved, but after his departure in the spring of 1997 it became clear the team needed to make an aggressive move to become the contender they were building themselves up to become.
Belfour came with plenty of drama and baggage. He'd developed a reputation as a crazed goaltender who wasn't friendly with the media and who had clashed with two of his backups -- including Dominik Hasek. Perhaps a bit more concerning was Belfour's reputation as a goaltender who folded in the clutch and who was unable to lead his team in the postseason. Plenty of risks, and upside, were apparent with Belfour from the start.
Yet Belfour was exactly what the Dallas Stars needed to complete the vision that Mr. Gainey had for the championship-caliber team he wanted to build. The goaltender fit perfectly into Coach's vision as a fearless and speed-driven offensive minded hockey team. Cheers to The Eagle.

NHL realignment in 2012 - This is a concept everyone can embrace as hockey fans.
It's clearly a great set-up for the Dallas Stars as their days of playing teams two time zones away are over. When I was the Stars' beat writer here in the mid-to-late '90s, this team had strong rivalries with (then Central Division opponents) Detroit, St. Louis and Chicago. Those are restored in the plan adopted by the league's Board of Governors.
Throw in Minnesota fans and their continued hatred of Dallas for "stealing" their team. A new division rivalry is born.
Here's hoping the league - forward thinking in so many areas now - goes old school and brings back the Norris, Patrick, Smythe and Adams names for the four conferences.
FRISCO -- The Dallas Stars held the 2011 Alumni Classic in Frisco Sunday night and among the current players suiting up were forward Tomas Vincour and defenseman Philip Larsen.
The two were still around Sunday after making it through the latest round of roster cuts as the Stars move closer to their opening night roster.
“It’s nice to be still here,” said Vincour. “I knew all I could do is work hard, play hockey and that’s what I did.”
Excluding forward Scott Glennie, who is injured and will be assigned to the AHL once he is cleared to play – the Stars are down to 24 players, one over the maximum of 23.
The Stars have 14 forwards, 8 defensemen and 2 goaltenders on the roster. If they decide to carry 14 forwards, Vincour is in a pretty good spot.
Most likely the Stars would carry seven defensemen, so there would need to be another defenseman moved off the roster. That could end up being Larsen, but that didn’t curb his enthusiasm for making this latest cut.
“You don’t know what is going to happen, but it is a really nice feeling to be here,” said Larsen. “You want to be here and you’re feeling more and more part of the team. Then again, you never know. But it is always like that.”
The Stars will need to be down to 23 players by the season opener. Read the full article at ESPN.com
Sept. 19 (Bloomberg) -- Chuck Greenberg, former chief executive officer and co-owner of the Texas Rangers baseball team, may seek to purchase the bankrupt Dallas Stars of the National Hockey League, a lawyer said today in court.
Greenberg is part of Texas Hockey Acquisition Co. and may participate in an auction of the Stars, owned by former billionaire Thomas Hicks, said Greenberg’s attorney, Jeffrey M. Schlerf, of Fox Rothschild LLP.
“They are definitely interested in bidding,” Schlerf said in an interview after the Stars hearing in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington, Delaware.
The Stars filed for bankruptcy on Sept. 15 with a plan pre- approved by its lenders to sell the team at an auction with a so-called stalking horse bid from Vancouver-based businessman Tom Gaglardi.
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Peter Walsh agreed to speed up the usual process for approving an auction. Walsh agreed to let the team return to court Sept. 22 to seek approval for the rules.
Greenberg and hall-of-fame pitcher Nolan Ryan led the group that bought the Texas Rangers at a bankruptcy auction last year for about $593 million.
Greenberg announced in March that he was stepping down as Rangers CEO and selling his stake back to the team because of differences with Ryan.
Gaglardi agreed to be the lead bidder with an offer that includes about $50 million in cash and $100 million in new debt promised to senior lenders.
Several parties signed confidentiality agreements with the team to get financial information they need to bid, Stars attorney Martin Sosland of Weil, Gotschal & Manges LLP said in an interview.
