Default The new daily driver :)

I have $600 in it right now. There is minor things wrong with it as you can see. I know i will put about $400 more in it soon (shampooing carpets, fixig leaky upper, ect). Also it has the common upper intake leaking so i am debating either A.) replacing everything (gaskets, upper intake ect) or B.) just swapping my motor out of the black bonneville in it (already have all the mods in it and it is a lot less miles). More then likely i may just swap my black bonne motor in it, because it would be roughly the same cost.

The 95 is the least restrictive L36 PCM in existence.

Nice to have two very similar cars. I don't think you'll regret it.

And I have those 'stuff between the seats' organizers. Exact same ones. We use them on long trips only. But they're very handy.

Yea i have loved my black one so i decided i couldnt pass up the white one. Plus i figured the black one has treat me great (had it for 5 years now) it deserves a L67 swap at the very least. Yea the organizor came with the car and looks like it will come in handy.

LOL, nope not a KIA. As for going fast, my goal is 13'* NA with it. If i hit 13.99999 then i will be happy. It is a very hard goal but hey you have to set your goals high. But the majority of my money is going in the black bonneville. I am going to L67 swap it this summer (like augustish) and that will be that for now. Then i am going to go and dump some money in the white one this fall (weather will be cooler so it will be good racing weather). I havent made up my mind yet for the white one, but probably GT1 cam, ZZP stage 2 heads (milled, to up compression), *&* headers (with a cutout at the downpipe), Ported LIM (matched to heads), HV3, HVTB, and some weight reductions. And the tranny will be something like what i wanted to do to the black bonneville before deciding to go L67. That would be 3.43 gears, with a hgiher stall converter. I dunno
