here's my other black hole for my wallet...


[Linked Image]

I've also got a 1993 GMC pickup that I'm builing up right now, with all the Edelbrock goodies <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

I also just picked up an old Glasspar 16' run-about...


"Does this part need to be in there?"

1996 Dodge 1500 single cab / short bed, 5.9 4x4; 2" lift (springs not blocks), C.A.I and more mods to come.

98 Buick Regal GS
3.8L V6 Supercharged. Auto (never came in Manual)
3.4" S/C pulley (3.8" is OE, so more boost)
Front Ported Manifold (OE's had restriction issues on front only)
2.5" downpipe with high flow cat and Ubend delete
HPT Shelf tuned ECU with remapped tables, shift points, and nix'd speed limiter.
3" dia. fender well intake (CAI).
Not much ever beats me at the light.
Nearly 300hp.. torque is similiar ballpark
28-31hwy mpg if im light footed (hard to do)
Front lowering springs.

I only put in about 5 grand including mods and including purchase of the car. did i mention it also has leather seats, sunroof, pwr everything, and cold A/C? smile Diamond in the rough.. My insurance classifies this as a family sedan cause that's what the body is, lol. the motor is the identical motor you'll find in a Buick Rivera, Park Avenue Ultra, Bonneville SSEI, and most well known Pontiac Grand Prix GTP! Same motor. Best part is these cars aren't usually beat already by some kid (like with hondas) Usually was owned by a granny or wife.. lady who sold this to me said, "you'll like it, it's got one of those 'turbo' thingies in it". she was referring to the supercharger and she was right.. in fact, that was the only reason I bought the car. Otherwise, I don't do automatics. The other forum I go to covers this car, www.regalgs.com.

Nice T-Bird! wanna race? lol. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shiner.gif" alt="" />

I had a 1992 Pontiac Bonnie SSEI. Lots o fun, but I traded it for a '88 stang with a '93 Cobra motor...

I ended up missing the bonnie later, still kinda do.

It actually does quite well in the snow as long as it is not too deep. The smart is rear engine and rear drive so it gets great traction.

If there is much snow my Sorento takes care of it.

Not the first car to have 3 lug wheels. The Renault LeCar had three lug wheels.

That's really all you NEED to hold against the rotating forces upon the wheel to hub. Granted there will be more pressure on each stud since there are less to divide the pressure , but it works for a small light weight car such as this
