Default Newbie in Texas

Just got a '95 88. Perfect paint and body, all accessories work, previous owner had a bunch of engine work done and then the tranny died. Hauled it off for $500. Gonna hafta drop a grand into tranny overhaul but all in all, I should have a nice ride (compared to my '90 Cavalier that my daughter is taking over). Anyway, found this site and already have gleaned a ton of information about these cars and the 3800 V6. Seems everyone is very helpful. I am looking foward to getting it to drive under its own power and diving into the motor. My oldest daughter to me it was a "old mans car". Just what I was looking for, real sleeper potential. Kinda like my full dress XS11. Falls under don't judge a book by its cover. Again, great site.

Hey, I resemble that remark.
Enjoy your new ride (when you get it rolling again) and welcome to the BC,

Welcome to the club...

This was my 95 SE with one mod... The air box was gutted and with a paper filter... Keep in mind... All bone stock everything with the exception of the gutted air box...
