Default Another Old guy from Ga.

Hello folks! Just ran across this forum tonight while searching for some info.
Looks like a bunch of good folks here with good taste in cars!!

I am true GM to the last day.
Many, many GM cars over the years: 1952 Club Coupe with modified 283 and Olds rear end in high school: 1964 Impala SS after that: two 1967 Chevelle SS: 1967 Corvette after the Army:a new 1974 GP: more Corvettes: a new 1986 Firebird (still have it): and lots more.

Now I have a 1994 Buick LeSabre bought new with 64,000 miles, and my dailey driver 1995 Grand Prix with 175,00 on it. Still runs and looks good.

I retired from the GM Plant in Doraville, Ga. a few years ago, so I do have too much time on my hands.

Joel

Aha! You would be surprised what you could do with that grand prix if you wanted to. They're excellent daily drivers, particularly 93-96 models due to better rear brakes and better brake boosters among a few other things. I've got a 95 regal, also a w-body like yours, and at 223k miles, its been one hell of a car!
