Those cars where the most sought after back in the day. Still very cool to have one!

She runs like a bat outta hell. I bought her about 4 months ago now in medicine hat, and one of the previous owners had just dished out the dough for a new transmission. I paid $850 with taxes. And she drove 3 hours home that day. Got the cash from the settlment out of the maroon SSE. I've got some replacement panels and body kit parts for the passengers side that I'm waiting for the snow to clear before I paint them.

As a domestic powerhouse side note, the old girl has taken every honda put up, held off an Audi a4 turbo and beat a brand new dodge 1500 ram by two car lengths. I just love the looks on peoples faces when they finally catch up.

Fastest I ha her was 173k so abou 110 mph. I could have kept going but I wanted to see th look on the face of the rental suburban that I had just destroyed. He was screwing with me on the highway, so I pulled a sling shot outta the corner and hammered it. My buddy was following me in his jeep and he said he watched me dissapear with some choice sign language out the window. Lol

A message to people who think their suv is king of the road. Don't try to screw with old school power, you'll never win.
