Default What was i thinking?

Well, i havent been around for a while, but i just bought another bonnie. Currently my Garage houses a '77 Trans Am (437ci/4spd), an '88 SSE Turbo, and now a '93 SSE Supercharged. I got the '93 for $350 at auction, it'* an SSE supercharged (not an SSEi) Green on Tan leather, 115,000 miles, mint condition body and the motor is almost as clean. Had a cracked heater core when i got it, i just wanted the HD tranny for my '88. I feared a cracked block, but much to my suprise it started up and ran perfect. I need to quit buying these damn pontiacs Well, tommorow, its getting and oil change, trans flush and filter, O2 sensor, supercharger flush, a heater core, a nice buff and wax, and the "supercharged" badges are coming off (can you say sleeper ) Maybe even clear corners if i feel extra ambitous

I'm proof that with the right junkyard parts, anything can be fast... But even so the tranny is just about shot on my '88 (third one) I need to find a way to make a FWD TH-400 lol
