Seems like a great place! And thanks Andrie! The 1997 was parted with because the rust,I feel when you try and jack it up on the frame rail, And all that happens is the jack rips threw it, Its time to let go! i got it with 76,600 miles, And parted with it at 274k miles. Mind you that was 1 blown motor later, but that transmission was still shifting like new! Oh, And i am the hardest you will ever see someone be on a car! But i also take care of them!

that was at 3am, and i was very tired, there were lots more lol, Currently i have a 1999 GTP, 1995 Monte carlo, and a 1992 Silverado 4x4.

last car i got was a 1994 GTP every option but leather!

yeah, the car didnt run any better with new plugs or wires, or fuel rail, or injectors LOL

And for the 660 Raptor, well when i got the 4 wheeler It was Great fun!.. Needed a lowering kit like no other, my 450R would run the 660 strait into the ground. But it was reliable, and a fun quad, Just to tall, if yamaha would have set it lower stiffen the ride on it, i would have enjoyed it a lot more. The way to describe it was the 660 in a trail is like a semi in a wind storm. Top heavy, and not fun to navigate. the 450R was just a really great quad, IF i had not got the 450, i would have never noticed the faults in the 660 though. Both great quads, I loved Reverse though

Pro'* on the 660
electric start
reverse

Cons
Tall
Soft suspension
gear ratio

Pro'* on the 450R
Ran like a bad outta hell
Felt lowered compared to the 660
Very reliable
Great feel in the gears

Cons
Kick start only
no reverse
