Default Old Warrior!

Well, I love my bonny and I loved my wife'* first and only GP, but its time for GM to say good bye to the 3800 series. They're aged in the performance/tech era. What GM should've done was maybe upgrade the Grand Am to the 3.8L and upgraded the Bonny and GP to 3.9s. The 3.8 could've saved and could still resurrect the Grand Am GT. I see some potential in the 3.9s through the G6 (240hp). I just think that car itself will be a failure (sporty camry look). The Grand Am GT was much better looking to me (just needed 17"*. Last step = SUPERCHARGE' EM ALL!!!!!

However, the 3800 series engine is one of the most reliable engines ever built. So what if its not the next best thing to come from Detroit. If you have a good thing going, you stick with it.

As that engine ages, you'll see people stuffing them in all sorts of places. and now theres an after market for this engine too?
