Default Recipe L67 recipient?

Well here'* the current daily driver. The Dippy is still at my uncles shop as I haven't had much time for working on it to get it on the road.

Anyhow, my current daily driver is this 1989 Lesabre Limited. Metallic red in color. Would make a helluva L67 recipient -can you say sleeper with it'* black front bumper and multiple light dings and dents all the way around the car?

Looked underneath it and saw what looks like a long, bent pencil for a rear swaybar. Definitely needs the FE2 sways from the 1997 SSE parts car. I hope to have those on this week -I already picked up the polyurethane end-links.
The trio of FE2 swaybars, poly end-links, and the 16" rims with 215/60/16 Goodyear Eagle GTII'* will really give the car some stability in corners.
So far the only mods to the car are:
16" Park Avenue rims (part of the FE2/F41 Gran Touring package)
California Customs breather cap replaced the oil filler cap
Infinity 6953i 6x9 rear speakers (they really sounded alot better in the Bonneville with the BOSE amp)
140 amp alternator
1999 L67 ignition module and coil packs
Thrasher Performance CAI w/K&N 9" cone

Other repairs done in the past week:
replaced passenger side axle
Autolite 605 plugs
Belden Premium 8mm wires (two of the old wires had cuts in them)
o2 sensor

Repairs/mods coming this week:
Working cooling fan
Throttle Position Sensor
Drivers side axle
Motor mount (still have to figure out which one is bad)
FE2 swaybars
Poly End-links
Power passenger seat
Door panels with housing for speakers from Concert Sound equipped parts car (this car only has front/rear dash speakers)
Alpine Type * 5.25" 2-ways to put in the doors
Pioneer DEH-P3500DH borrowing from my brother until I decide which deck I want to buy (Pioneer DEH-P8MP or Alpine 9815)
Infinity 1232 Reference 12" sub in custom built box
Alpine MRD-M500.1 mono amp
Monster Cable RCA'* with RF 4G power/ground cables

wow the look of the car really changes with the PA wheels. Why are you not driving the PA??, but a L67 in the saber would be fun

Wow, those 16" Park Av rims are really snazzy on the older model...

I have to admit, looking at the pic, the wheels kinda make it look like an Electra.

1993SLE -I traded the dad my share of the ownership of the 1997 for this Lesabre (he had borrowed me $1G for repairs to it), and the Diplomat. I am sitting on the money I got from selling the SSE for something bigger than a car. I don't know how long before I make the big purchase, but the interest I'm making from having the extra $$$$ in my savings account will help when the time comes.
