Default 17 and drive ms daisy'* car haha

hey all. im new here, came from the buick forums but i was looking on google about removing the air baffles in my stock airbox (typical broke teen) to try to improve mpg'*. as it is, my stock car with the original delco sparkplugs and mostly rusted out muffler i am averaging 19.5 mpg city, which considering my dad drives the exact same car, year options everything but in pewter and only gets 18mpg going to work on the highway i think im doing pretty well keeping my foot off of the floor most of the time haha. but basically now that ive adjusted my driving habits as best i can i want to do more to improve my mpg'*, and now we're back to how i found you guys. as for mods on my car i installed a pioneer hd tuner ipod headunit. i got tired of the huge font tape and casette. i much prefer the hd radio and being able to plug in my ipod via usb. the previous owner, who flattened my seat and busted off the part that holds the seat controls he was so huge installed wind blockers and 20% tint. since i bought the car i fixed the seat control holder, but compared to my dads car i feel like im on the floor haha.

anyway, here is a pic of my baby. i find myself washing it once a week and putting nu finish on every 3 months haha.

i hope to find out alot more here than on the slow posting buick forums haha.

Welcome to the forum Jason! Yeah, I guess you don't see very many young kids driving Park Ave'*, I dunno why, from what I've heard, they're very nice cars.

Welcome from the land of "we drive granny cars".

Maybe a cushion swap is in order for the seat. I'm actually getting ready to swap a cushion in my regal.
