If I had to guess, I would say it has taller gearing than the GP, simply because it'* a Buick and possibly targeted for highway cruising. Maybe the same as a Bonnie?

Yeah I'm pretty sure its the GS. I guess i'll have to check the rpo since it'* not real common knowledge..
I talked to the guy (I know/worked with him for a while) and he said it'* got around 90k on it and he'd let it got for $600. Said everythings solid. He bought it for his son a while back and preped it for paint (hes a body guy) but his son ended up buying a truck. So it'* just kind of sitting there and he wants to get rid of it.
Gonna try and go look at it today and start it up etc.

What year is it, again? You'd be delving into the Series 1 world, or do a Series 2 swap?

I'm not sure what year it is exactly. It'* a 92-95 though. I just forgot to ask the guy.
This is just a car i plan on keeping for 4-5 months or so.
If i do anything outside of a tuneup to the engine it'll be: L67 coil swap, intake, afc, willwren style pems, and a high flow cat thats sitting in my garage.
Not really looking to do a swap or anything big. Just looking for a cheap reliable daily driver.
I gotta get back into a 94-95 bonnie when i have more $.

Ok kind of went car shopping today. Heres what I know so far.
89 *-10:
Odometer was rolled back (none of the numbers line up)
2.5l 4 cyl
stick
runs, drives, shifts fine
Makes weird noise in reverse after 20 ft or so
needs d/* shock
missing drivers side mirror
5 star 15s with new 265'* in the back
bucket seats
primered w/ some rust spots
crappy azteca lights in the back
Asking $700

89 buick regal custom:
I still have to go back and get more info on it.
I went to the parking lot where the guy keeps it but he couldn't be there. He left the keys in the visor and a jump box in the back for me to check it out. It has been sitting for a while and the battery is dead.
Anyways I couldn't get it to start cause the jump box was beat but it did turn over and the digital dash said it has 117k on it. I called him back up and he said he'll try and get it started on monday and let me know.
3.1l (turns out it wasn't a 3.8l)
2 dr
blue but primered sports cause it'* preped for paint
In all, cleaner than the *-10
Asking $600
