what?!?!?! those are the worst dsm'*!! the crank loves taking nice long walks in those 2g'*... thats why everyone with a 95-99 does a 1st gen swap, only utilizing the larger 2g exhaust manifold (they usually go ahead and port them anyway).. there are very very few 6bolt 2nd gens running faster than 13'*. only problem is that all of 'em are super unreliable

pfff. The Regal isn't any more grandpa-ish than what you're used to driving.. It'* a little more sporty IMHO. I LOVE the Regals! I had the pleasure of driving one (LS not GS though) and they drive very nice and the interiors are very nice and plush. THe brakes are horrible though. I'd choose a regal over a grand prix anyday. the GP'* are way too cheap inside. I think the regal looks pretty sporty, same thing with the Riviera. although there are tons of people who would disagree with that unfortunately. :(

I know my car has a grandpa image, and the regal is sportier, but thats why i dont want my car anymore, the grandpa image....

btw, its the 95-97'* that have the bad crank walk issue, and its not unheard of for a 1st gen to get crank walk, but the 98-99'* dont have that issue really, some due, but its not that common. ill see if i can find some hooked up regals, i dont really want to "pimp" one out, just give it a sportier look/feel to it, i am 20 ya know...

This color combo is my fav.



Thats all I have i guess. The white one opened up his headlights and painted black inside in some of it. Looked bad ***, but he needed to put some driving lights in the foggies down low.

i like the black on grey regal GS'*, i think there the lightest L67 equiped car too, not to mention PROBABLY not abused like GTP'*, problem is, aroung here they seem to go for more than they do in other area'*. i guess i could look for one, they buy one in a different state or somthing, or just wait for that good deal....ill check out insurance, i know a 4 door GTP was pretty high for full coverage, i think it was 1400 every 6 months
