You guys are quite the bunch, I feel a lot better about getting a wbody after talking to you guys. I'm having a problem right now with my car stalling out, and I'm having some drama with my mechanic. If you guys can help me here on the thread listed below, I'd really appreciate it.

Well I'm sorta stuck. I have this topic and the other one about the ongoing issues I'm having with my car, and I don't want to flood the board with solely with my 9c1. I'm going to Pennsylvania on Monday to a pick and pull (as opposed to what we have here in Queens, where parts are inventoried and sold at a higher price) to get some missing trim parts as well as some other interior/moulding parts that are in better condition. I'm also interested in maybe pulling out an OEM CD/Cassette player and seats from a given W/C/H body if applicable as well as maybe the switch for cruise control and maybe even a steering wheel with radio buttons and such. Other than the steering wheel, which has airbags calibrated for the seating position of each model, are the other parts I'm looking for interchangable between W bodies, and furthermore between platforms (C/H body)?

Hmm, don't know if I'm flogging a dead horse now since this thread is a bit buried, but what would I need to get to tune for better gas mileage and better shifts, and so on?

There are quite a few guys with tuners in your area, and they can tune your engine to do anything you'd like to aim for. Ask around, and you should be all set. Definitely check with BillBoost37.

So I was wondering lately about recaro seats. Do you guys think if I found some around from a Lumina I could just bolt them into my car?

If it didn't have all the dents it would be cooler, as well, I need a grill with a badge on it, I imagine it would really pull things together. I'm waiting for it to get warm again. I'll probably take it to the wash again and take some new pics soon.

as far as the seats go gm is going to make it easy for themselves they probably wouldnt change the mounts for specific seats, or most anything else for that matter.
