Glad to have you. We are especially rich in knowledge on the 3800 platform, and have grown over the years to include all GM products.

Well I've always owned trucks, even as my "toys", but I must say I'm really enjoying the car so far.. Almost got me thinking about buying a nicer one in the future to throw some bolt ons on it..

I bet that new GP will save a few bucks in the wallet vs that 2500HD.

Welcome aboard Justin!

Yeah I could have went 4 banger. Test drove it and liked the fact that not bad mpg and still had some bite.
Now lol with it being a $2000 car just got to fix a tranny leak that I just found out about, get the tires balanced, and try to keep myself from buying aftermarket stuff

i dont believe in 4cyl, lol. but a 3400 monte, impala, or 3500 whatever will get more hwy than a 4cyl. and about 30 average mixed on my commute to work. and my 3500 has the same power as a l67
