Default grand prix is no more

well, the car i have invested soooo much time into, is now gone. it was sad to see it go. but i just couldnt invest any more time into it. i had the JY i go to pick it up today. i got a whole $100, whoo whooo. and if it had an eng, trans, and converter i could have got 150.

should have gotten pics, didnt think about it.

Sorry to hear that. It'* always hard to part ways with one of the family. When I moved into my '02 SE I had the same feeling letting go of my '82 Parisienne. It had 613,875km. Someone else drove it another year before it finally went to GM car heaven.

it was bitter sweet. it was hard to let it go, but it cleared out the driveway (a lil), got my olds under shelter. and also prevents me from investing any more money or time into it.

i keep repeating those valid reasons to myself, but still deep down, i want to finish the project. oh well, done and over now.

now time and devotion to the buick

i just realized something. when i started the project of the L67 into this gp, that was the reason i found this forum. so even tho the car is gone, it was well worth the loss, bc i feel like ive gained soo much more just by finding this great place.

It'* great to have you around. I know you helped me out quite a few times with some of my questions, so it'* great to have you around. What are you going to do with your $100?
