Default My Madness!!

Noob intros are useless without picture threads of the madness!!!

My 95 Cutlass, 3100 4T60e, right after I traded my 96 CS that was getting rusty to my best friend.

We installed the Grand Prix dash in this one after I did the same in my 96 CS. Having HUD and DIC is such a wonderful thing!

Hmm, a 95 showing OBD2 data?!?! Oh noes!! When I got the car, the SES light came on on the drive home. The next day, I got parts from Pullapart and OBD2 swapped it. 97 Lumina PCM allows me to use my HP Tuners setup

Gen 2 W-body aluminum rear knuckles, brakes, GMPP trailing arms, Gen 2 W-body lateral links!! The pics are of my old 96 CS, my best friend had to have the same mods as me so we did it. Both cars are modded very similar.

Ok, heres the Roach pics, aka work in progress. Hope to have it done by May, it will be a slow slow process.

92 Cutlass Convertible, got it off a forum member. Severely neglected to no end. Unibody, super super rust free.

1st mod so far, a super beefy front strut tower brace. Just slapped that on there to calm the cowl shake down, which it did. IMHO the stock brace was almost worthless.
