I havnt yet actually....

last two years I had issues per summer....

First summer I had it I had a badass leak on my first set of headers, and some other issue I cant recall.

The second summer I had the rear end going out and it was grinding bad, by the time I got the new one in it was too late in the season.

I also havnt got it on the dyno yet either.... but this summer I got everything running good and I just hope I can find the time to get to the nearest track... 2-4 hrs away depending on which one I wanna go to lol

I don't dig those wheels, but they are done right. Right offset, the lip looks nice. Props on that. I just don't like the design of them, but they look really good.

Looks like it's in real good shape! The interior looks just like a Grand Am. Is that the standard GM interior?

Haha about the grand am interior, the only part about the interior that looks grand amish would be the vents or the steering wheel haha....

I dig it.... If it was Polo green like mine I would be in love. Ive never really been a fan of the chameleon green color, but nice car none the less.... tell him to sell it to me lol....

ill be getting that hood over this summer too!

I think the biggest problem people have with them is the centers are silver.... which looking at some pics i dont like either.... I wouldnt mind getting them blacked this summer... we'll see...


needs more cam.

I decided I dont want to 'just' cam it.... im waiting til I can get a 383 stroker engine is physically all new, kuz I dont wanna cam and engine when I can pay a little bit more and just have a cammed/stroked engine instead, ya know?

his is a really dark blue, the paint job sucks on it but he takes real good care of it anyways. it has 7x,xxx miles on it, and we just put an electric water pump on. he wants to turbo it eventually, i dont like the way his car drives but it is a fast good handling car for the money.

Yeah, the silver centers is what does it. I couldn't put my finger on it, but once you mentioned it, that is what it was.

Powedercoat them!

Nice looking car.

Seems like the tires are too skinny or its not lowered?

True?

Either way, nice and keep up the good work.
And yeah, black those centers sometime and it will look a million times better.

thats not a big deal at all, most of the fastest fbodies are automatic so yaaaa.... plus it just means it will be easier on my rear end, and ive already been thru a couple of those in the two years ive owned it.... :zombie:
