not really a 'new' member, just back for more
i was previously known as 'malibuolds' but my email changed and stupid me already deleted my old email account so i couldn't reactivate my account. so i just re-registered using the screen name i use on all of the other forums i go to and besides less confusion that way for people here who know me on other forums (fwiw i'm the site admin over on http://www.gmwbody.com
). hope that doesn't cause problems for you moderators
my apologies if i went about it the wrong way.
anyways, i sold my '94 SSE to my brother last year, which is currently sitting un-driveable due to the steering column. i'm not sure what he'* going to do with it. i thought about trying to buy it back but i really want an L67 and not an L27. i also want one with a moonroof.
i found a pair of SSEis sitting together in someones yard. they have been there for a long time and haven't moved. neither looked to be in too good of shape; obviously someone'* project cars. one was green and the other was black. both of them were '92-'95. i'm assuming whoever owns them is using one as a parts car to fix the other one up? i wish i could go ask about them, but no money :(
i currently have a '98 Regal GS which i LOVE, but i'd really like to sell it so i don't have a car loan. i'd glady sell it for what i owe on it but that'* going to be tough considering my location (even though my loan pay-off is WELL below NADA average retail). call me crazy but i really prefer the looks of the '92-'95 SSE/SSEi over the '97+ Regal GS. the '92-'95 SSE/SSEi is probably my favorite looking FWD GM car. the styling alone outweighs the Regal GS'* Series II L67 for me. i'm sure i could get a Series I L67 SSEi to be reasonably quick anyway. i know Series I aftermarket is very limited but it'* not like i want to build a high 13 second car out of it anyway. my Cutlass already fills that need - it will absolutely blow the doors off my Regal GS (though my GS is
totally stock of course whereas my Cutlass is FAR from stock). there are a few other cars i've seen locally that i'm interested in, one being a '92 Grand Prix STE, BUT i don't want to have anything to do with the 3.4L DOHC LQ1 engine it has (rare car though, 1 of only 571 made). besides, i already have a 1st GEN W-body. i think another one would bore me. the other is my neighboor'* black '89 Taurus SHO. i really lke the SHO, but i already have a car with a 5-speed. i want my 'other car' to have an automatic. so yeah....i'd rather have an SSEi over those two cars.
anyway, i might try to sell my Regal GS soon. i'd rather have a cheap project car than a car loan at this point, ecspecially since i REALLY need to start school soon. i already have a dependable daily driver besides my Regal GS anyway. i do all of my own work (besides welding i guess) so something that needs a little work isn't a problem for me.
anyways, just back to say hi and hopefully i can find another SC '92-'95 Bonneville soon. i like the '96+ alright but not nearly as much as the '92-'95, and besides, they would be more expensive anyway.
