Thanks, BP. I just put new front pads on and noticed the flexible front brake lines need to be replaced. Oh well, another weekend project. Actually this car looked pretty bad before I painted it, paint was faded and had some surface rust. Believe it or not, this is a daily driver. I've had it for about 6 years and it has about 150,000 miles on it, still running strong, burns no oil. The brakes are a little strange. Sometimes when it gets cold (below freezing) the pedal gets "hard" and its hard to stop. I bled the brakes last year and it seemed to help some. We will see this winter what happens.

Just saw an '88 SSE on Ebaymotors for $1500. It has 298,000 miles on it and still looks pretty good. The GM 3800 V6 is probably the best engine GM has designed since the original small block Chevy motor.

It was so good and reliable that Ford copied it and put it in the mustang, thunderbird and a few others. the difference between the GM and Ford motors is ours have a balance shaft fords dont
