Default A few pics of my 88 beater

Here she is, my 88 LE beater. She is my first car, I did learn how do drive in my dad'* 92 Grand Am, though I did drive her every now and then.


I'll post more when I have more time, I'm getting kicked out of the computer lab.

Hey...not bad!

The 3800 powered cars make for EXCELLENT beaters. My 87 Bonnie was a beater. Finally bit the dust at 229K...thanks to a fuel pump and roted brake lines.

She'* at about 200k right now, we just had to replace the fuel pump about 6 months ago, like the 3rd in 4 years.

i think ive seen that here before. my favorite part is hearing the turbos spool up before launch. that has to have some serious turbo lag.
