Default "Grandpa" with LeSabre says Hi.

Hi all, just found this place while looking for info on my '94 LeSabre so I figured I might as well sign up. My LeSabre is daily transportation and is a little weathered but not too bad for having served as the family truckster for the past 6 years, one of these days it will get retired and I have been toying with the idea of making a bit of a sleeper out of it. Anyway I hope you don't mind if I poke around a bit. Here'* a pic of the "Geritol Express" as I lovingly call the old girl.....................

Weathered?? That'* a fine looking Sabre ya got there.

And they are the ultimate sleeper, in my opinion. Nobody expects a LeSabre to smoke 'em at the light (I used to do that occasionally in my LeSabre when people would try to ace me outta my lane)

Thanks all........... I have had a lot of compliments on the wheels, my favorite was "It doesn't even look like a Buick with those wheels on it !" Too bad Buick didn't build something like the SSEi or LSS out of the LeSabres :( .

Yeah, I love the look on people'* faces when they slip into the other lane at a light so they don't get stuck behind the "old guy" in the LeSabre and they get dusted. I have some plans for it after it'* daily driver duties are done but I'm not tellin' what they are just yet ..............

Whatever you do, don't make it externally obvious. Gotta love Stealth Mode...

With the exception of 2 exhaust tips it will look just like it does now. If I follow through with my idea it will have a decidedly different exhaust note however............ If I don't then my '95 Monte Carlo Z34 is going to have a decidedly different exhaust note but I think my plan would be a lot cooler and "sneakier" on a LeSabre.

You should stay tuned to what i'm doint to mine. Only difference will be power... valve cover looks, and maybe the exhaust....
