jlathem,

no joke, I run in the g-stock class for right now, till i get some things taken care of (mods). It kind of stinks 'cause I always run against a Mini Cooper * which is far superior in the corners. :(

Nothing like a Grand Prix engine in a Bonneville.

Sol, the GP got the motor from the Bonneville, which got the motor from Buick.

I'm with Repin on this one...

They're just cars....I'm not in love with mine. Ya, I have two and had one before that, but I like them for the power train and their value. So, I'd be happy with any other H-body for that matter. Let'* face it...they're pretty easy to work on, overall not bad looking, and are a strong engine.

I'm not a faithful H-body owner either, though. I buy whatever will be reliable, is a good value, and is easy to maintain. As a matter of fact this past week I got lured into the GM 72-hour sale and picked up an 04 L61 J-body. Couldn't beat the price as it was damn near half-off retail.

So, be sure to check out my 93 that'* for sale in the For Sale section!
