Sure we could do 6 different pics and it could then be made into a quick slide show. lol

I need to match the rims on a car in a similar position with your picture.



Wink wink sales pitch coming duck and cover… or I can send you a list of my new rims to look at and we can then set you up with a set of custom Aurora drop springs. Lol
I can get the aurora springs fairly cheap but Boyd Coddington rims are just too fine to get much of a discount.

I'll take some pics for sure tonight...hee hee



Its suprises me how low the Aurora rides, I find there is not a lot of room between the top of the Michelins and the wheel well. Are we looking at a 1.5" drop...?

Geez I better start saving up again

1.4 all corners and unlike the eibach ones that used to exist these don’t sag in the rear. We can go as low as you want to go but the 1.4" formula is the best for performance.


Send some pics. I will see what we can do.

I dont know TY ? I like the front of the car (LeSabre). But I really do not like the height of the rear quarter, cant stand the quick slope of the roof, and huge tailights suck. Destroyed the looks of the Alero. Just my opinion of course but please remember the clean and sleek 86 LeSabre was my first reintroduction back into domestic cars and am just big time disappointed at what it has become. I mean it just has "for Old folks only" written all over it. With Buick and Olds having gotten so much uneducated reputation of being a old folks car and now Buick has just gone OK "old folks only". Buick always had performance, sexy, sporty luxury cars but not no more. Retired folks golf club carriers. Yea thats it - a golf cart for the highway.

I agree with lots of better designed body lines and lots of sheet metal work it could be a cool hot rod type but that would just be fixing what is wrong with the appearence of the car and that should be Buicks job.

Im only so harsh because I hope someone at BUICK AKA GM reads these posts, Im beggin them , please make a Buick that will turn heads again ! PLEASE !!!!

Ok I get your point. I do agree that it takes some mods but the sheet metal work required is not that bad in my book and with darker taillights I think the car can look great.

My first thought when I saw the car was wow. Look back at all the old Tubed out hotrods with the round lines and that heavy powerful feel. Most GM or Chrysler attempts to make a hotrod turn out to look like a 90'* car with a plastic looking attempt at retro and a crappy interior. This car was made as an "old person" car and it is these cars that used to make such great hotrods. This car does not need to be forced (in my opinion). Keep the rear the same darken the tailings paint it blue or black and yes add flames if you’re me. The guy at the dealership thought I was mad. LOL

Lowered with big rims is a must. Some grillwork could be fun. Smooth simple and powerful. I like the idea of the accented chrome holes on the side or some other accent that would point to it having an 8 under the hood. There are also some vogue options available that look nice.

Just thought I would point out that with a little vision without the wavy plastic the other H Bodies can be an equally great car.
