Nice snag there. I bought my 1992 SE, 1994 SLE, and 1997 SSE 40th parts car from the local Copart auction. I believe the one near me is the only Copart facility left that doesn't require a dealers license, although they probably will next year.

Is this for your 93 Jachin? If so, do you realize that the tan color is lighter in the 97 than the 93?

NOOOO! but i'm the BC sleeper owner. Actually there is a 1989 Buick Le Sabre Custom with the L67 swap on Car Domain. Good find on the engine and good luck on the swap!

And from what I can tell the 1997 tan is ALOT lighter than 1990 tan. Oh well, I'll just swap all the seats so it looks a little more uniform.

great





good luck with that. Waiting to see the results.


I thought I was the only one that bought supercharged cars for the ~$100 range.

How about those window vents?? I dont use the ash tray in my car to avoid ash all over every thing. The bonneville gets very wet letting rain in with just a lil crack when smoking.

I cruised up to the donor car site this past weekend and joined Randy in a little interior removal.

It went from a complete interior except cluster and radio when I showed up to no interior except headliner and wiring harness. Randy was on fire taking this baby down. It'* to the point that on both sides of the car there'* a wiring harness that goes out to the headlights and a few other things. That harness is back inside the cabin.

I stopped over today to stupervise the installation of his new angel eyes and found the 97 seats to be in the 93 already. This guy isn't waiting for anything.

The wife did threaten his life if he brings the FSM'* with him on vacation this week and I sort of hope he listens to her. But if he doesn't...just send your parts orders to me...I know where the car (with the few remaining parts is living...I think)

Keep up the good work Randy...so far the 93 is looking great.....I can't wait until you get back and we can jump into the 90 with the 97 L67 under the hood
