Default Newb from Boise

Hey all, came over to check out PontiacJeff'* build thread ofter I saw some videos. Very cool site. I nave a 1999 Buick Regal that is turbocharged and broken and being rebuilt. Hope to have it together and ready for club challenge racing. Currently driving a 2000 WS6 that is stock but pretty nice. I just might turn it into a beast like the regal.

Had this regal for a while now. I actually bought it as a parts car from some dude that roll raced the crap out of it in Florida. Then I made the dumbass mistake of selling my car I was building and fixing the parts car. I'm still fixing this damn thing. Already put a new transmission in it. Fried every bearing in the engine last time I drove the car, and fried the turbo. Rebuilt the short block and will put heads on this weekend. Hah! bought the aluminum pan off Bill.

I picked the WS6 up a year ago, actually traded a 2002 SSEi in on it on a impulse.
