That'* what makes me sad. I was hoping you'd come over to the light side of the force.

I'm calling the spelling police!

But when you look at it, which one would you rather be, Todd?

Anyhow, I'm glad to see you haven't lost the drive, Mike. Any chance of you getting a V6 Camaro or Firebird? Then you would keep the L36, but have the advantage of a RWD platform. If I were you, I would be seriously considering the option!

Absolutely. Add on INTENSE'* rear mount turbo kit, and the right accompanying mods... ...and the go out and whup on the V8 guys. I thought about it myself, before I bought the PA, but I couldn't find one in good shape. :(

Sorry no fords in my near future. :(
Whooops on the spelling.
No chance of me in a L36 f-body. I wouldn't be able to stand not finishing what I set out to do with a Bonneville. Alot of people think I'm crazy but I know what I want.
And no boost any time soon. There are still a bunch of n/a mods out there.
I'm just trying to get back to where I was. It'* going to be tough though because I have to pay for a summer class and whatever my loan won't cover for my final semester.
I talked to my buddy agian and I'm almost defitely getting an early 90'* *-10. It'* primered, STICK, has beemer wheels, camaro bucket seats, new trans/clutch, dosen't burn anything, and runs good. $600. That will get me around for a while. Till I can get another bonnie to pop my motor in.

Yeah, thats what my little sister used to drive, she liked it, because its a girl car. If you get an F Body with a V6, its a nice chick car for sure.

Did you ever get your trans fixed? I wasn't around for a while, but it sure would suck if you had finally gotten around to fixing it only to have this happen...

So sorry to hear bout the accident, i'm glad you are ok though.
Cars are replaceable people are not. You can always get another car, but there can never be another you.

God bless you and give you a speedy recovery.
