Woohoo! Found a performance jem in a local salvage yard - Page 2 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Performance, Brainstorming & Tuning Talk about modifications, or anything else associated with performance enhancements. Have a new idea for performance/reliability? Post it here. No idea is stupid! (please use Detailing and Appearance for cosmetic ideas)

Dont forget the TB, and anything else that you might be able to sell online for some $$$ you can sink into your own car.

I'm gonna guess the guy who wrecked the car. He probaly went back to get his mods probably with the help of some friends.

The insurance lot that the car was bought off of is not allowed to give buyers info even to the prior owner -MN law (I was bidding on it and was out-bid because dealers get to see private party bids and then the dealers can have their own bid war and the private bidder can no longer bid -I was the highest bidder with a $1100 bid and it sold for $1225).

I'm guessing Lee Uteight (? -not sure how his last name is spelled, but his SN is GP_PIMP) or Jkeltgen were called by the yard as Lee knows alot of people in the area and no doubt has been to this yard a few times. My guess is they called him to let him know they had it or were bidding on it.

Yeah i put my car on a diet too. I have a bare trunk, no throw carpets, no padding under the carpet, and no mouldings.
I've heard the 100 bl = .1 sec too. But i've also heard that you get more gains by removing things in that back. (b/c of weight on the wheels) It makes sence.
That'* cool as hell you found that car. Sounds like you got the mod bug. he he.
