Those old 3.1s are strong. They're as rock solid as the 3800s.

So, the father drives the Bonnie and you want it and you drive the GP am I right? Would look cool with some new rims, maybe some modern GP rims.

Right no money right now. Yes the GP is my folks they own it and I am lucky enough to drive it. I think I am shaving my cat out with my uncle and getting a CD deck yet. But I got the tires I wanted, my father was gonna put on some cheap brand I have never heard of but talked him into the Bridgestone Insegnias! The chrome tip only was 5 dollars. The car is 16 years old like me and uhh should run a while longer. I would love to get some GP Turbo or STE wheels for it but I have no money. A fresh coat of sliver paint and 2 more trim rings already have 2 in my house will do it justice. Only has 104k!

I see now. Does your dad let you do whatever you want to the car or does he have strict limits to what you can do? I'm thinking a CAI would be a nice project, not sure if it already has one.

I strongly encourage you that you talk to your pa if he'* a major major car buff that you and him find some nice cheap rims.

Gut the box! Gut the box! gm4life it'* a nice starter car(better than my '64 falcon) and in good shape.Those 3.1'* are all but indestrutable.had an Olds 3.1 (used and it went to the junkyard with 214000 miles on it and still ran.) The body was falling apart, and still have two Park Aves with 120000 and 174000 and they still run great.(the higher mileage one had dry nitrous setup for 5 years. So go synthetic oil and keep off the limiter and it should last ya till you can get out of school and on your feet. ( 'less Dad springs for a new one and hands ya the GXP keys>hehehe. mmmmmmmmmm wouldnt GXP 18inchs look sweet on that GP. To bad you dont live 1500 miles to the east...I need a house painted.

After looking at alot of intakes that wont fit the super cramped space I have I'm putting box back in and drilling 2" holes with a holesaw in the front and fenderwell side and going to cover them with rabbit hutch screening from the inside. Cheap, should have lots of flow and look decent.
