I would say to get the Regal, sure it has the 3.1 no biggie, as you said you're not looking for a fast car, just a car to drive around. The Regal sounds 100x better than that POS *-10. and it'* even cheaper too. I would say to get the Regal and paint it yourself and if you MUST have a 3.8, just go to the junkyard and pull a S1 L67 (rare yes but could be lucky) and swap it in and you're set and all for less $$$$$$$ than that *-10. Whatcha u think Mike?
I think the ser1 L67 would be alot of work. I'm pretty sure they never got anything outside of a L27 and I think it just has a 4t60 (no e). Plus it would take alot of down time. But if I had the time, $, and drive, it would probably be a fun car.
I'm really trying not to put a bunch of $ into another car either. I'm just looking to get 5 months or so out of it.
I might just ask the guy how much for a quicky paint job or flat black lacquer primer.
But thats all if it runs ok.
It sucks cause 40hrs working + night school + physical therapy is eating all my getting back into a car time.
