Talking I'm feeling chatty.

Hey hey hey!!!!

My name is Buck, I'm 19 and I am a GM vehicle addict. Can't get enough. I also enjoy gardening, although haven't been able to do that much lately due to moving around often. I am a manager at a movie theater. I live St. Joseph, MO. Come by sometime and I'll hook you up. Anyways, I've had 10 cars and they all hold a very special place in my heart.

#1- 1984 Pontiac 6000 LE, carb'd 2.8l V6. Thing wouldn't die!!! Ran it out of oil more times than I can count, overheated it a few times, wrecked it several times, just kept coming back for more. Had about 165,000 miles when I got rid of it.


#2- 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera SL, 3100 V6. Only had 34,000 miles on it, I put about 10,000 VERY hard miles onto this car, lots of ramping and mudding, etc. Bent the subframe, etc, but learned to keep a car in good running order with this car. Tis car never let me down and did VERY well.


#3- 1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme *, 3.1 V6. 121,000 miles. I spent so much freaking money on this car. Had the trans swapped, new rims and tires, blah blah blah, It NEVER ran right. This is the car "If I had my current knowledge back then..." That I'm sure we've all had. I hardly put any miles on this car cause I could barely trust it out of the driveway. Lost a boatload selling this one. Also learned a lot about brakes on this douch of a car.


#4- 1993 [GASP]Ford Escort GT[/GASP], 1.8 DOHC, 5-speed, 16x,000 miles. This was actually quite a fun little car, poor thing slid into a curb and shattered the trans case, etc. Not nearly as durable as a bigger GM.


#5- I sold #3 and #4 for a 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP, L32 supercharged, bought with 194,000 miles and drove it up to 213,000 miles. This car was hands down the best of all my cars. VERY unfortunately, I fell asleep(@73mph) driving this back from ironically getting it detailed about 4 hours away from a w-body club member. The three following pictures were taken SAME day, on my 19th birthday. Me and my boyfriend walked away with VERY minor(one cut, a few bruises). Really speaks to the safety of these cars.




#6- 1989 Pontiac Grand Prix SE, 2.8 V6, 5-speed. This car treated me very well. Fun to drive, looked good and sounded ORGASMIC doing it. Save for the front end. Bought it that way, ended up hacking it back together. Had about 150,000 miles IIRC


#7- 1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Z34, 3800 V6, 140,000 miles. Bought cheap, had trans rebuilt, did LIMGs, UIM, valve cover gaskets, etc etc. Been a perfect runner ever since and my boyfriend currently drives it.(Excuse the salt, don't have many pics of this car.)


#8- 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP Comp G, Supercharged 3800, 121,000 miles. Poor thing was beat to death when I bought it. Got it for $2500. Got it running decent, this thing handles so freaking great. I plan on having this car FOREV. It'* my project bitch, and needs A LOT. It is a pre-production model, which basically means it was made for testing, magazine articles, etc. it is the 323rd third gen GP made. It is the only car of mine that I can recite the VIN from memory. I am a HUGE third gen GP nut, you have a question about one, I bet I can answer it. I have had the entire interior out of this car, and will again. This car is in my Sig.


#9- 1991 Pontiac Grand Prix SE, 3.4 DOHC LQ1, 284 5-speed, 184,000 miles. This thing is pretty damn fun to throw around. It has been a damn good beater, but I'm selling it. I replaced it with #10.


#10 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Convertible, 3.4 DOHC LQ1, 134,000 miles. This thing is in great shape. I just bought it for a GREAT price, $1500. It needs clayed and waxed though. Runs GREAT.





I currently have 8, 9, and 10. I'm selling 9 though.

I have learned SOOOOO much. I've done like 5 sets of LIMGs on various cars now, as well as head gaskets and crossover gaskets on my moms 2006 Monte Carlo 3500, yes, really. They all will leak eventually. They didn't use big enough head bolts in the inner corners from the factory. They can't seem to catch a break, lol


Soo....... Do you hate me yet? Did you actually make it this far!? Congrats! Go take some Tylenol!

00001 would be the first made, 00010 would be the tenth made... 00300 would be the three hundredth made... 00323 would be the three hundred twenty-third made.... Am I missing something here?

In the VIN numbering system, the sequence number is one ahead of the actual number. Very odd but that'* the way it is.

man he must have forgot. The Clutch was slipping BAAAAD!, I got it. Drove it 14 miles, clutch gave out on the way to my house (70 miles, i thought "Hell its a gm" the hills were something else though) I picked it up with my silverado and a trailer the next day. Drug it home. Put a clutch in it, Sold it back to buck 22 miles later, was a great car though! just cant stand the dash in the 88-93'* and, And i didnt see the need to drive it with two supercharged cars beging me to drive them with there leather heated seats, sunroofs, 3.25 pulley'* and headers.... ok see why i did not keep it? LOL!
