    I bought a 90 Eddie Bauer Ford Bronco last September with a 351 Windsor in it. I had to get the AOD tranny rebuilt, It has 31 inch MudTerrains on it on stock wheels painted black, I'll find some pics of that. Plan on a 4 or 6 inch lift on 35 mud boggers sometime


    I also got a 08 Saturn SKY Redline. Turbo 2.0 260 HP, Its a wonderful little car and roadster.

    I sold my 98 SPI a few years back, when I knew I wanted the sky, to get the most I could from a private seller, and would get more of a trade in on the malibu I bought from my mom. Anyways just sayin hey, not sure if anyone remembers me.

    Looks good... although I agree with Madmatt on the auto.

    I almost test drove a new Solstice GXP SSB SCCA car yesterday. I was with a buddy of mine, he was looking at a G6. They have thier cars marked WAY down, and I couldn't believe the price on the Solstice. If we would have had more time, I would have asked to take it out... but I doubt I would have bought it anyway.... I like having no car payment.

    Not hating on the name, just the auto trans. I'm a little wherry of the Sky/Solstice though. Somebody on teamzx2 had one and it had like $7K worth of stuff go wrong with it with in less then 20K miles that GM refused to fix. I heard some of the stuff is better/stronger on the turbo version though.

    i don't know how GM would refuse to fix it.. its under warranty for 3 yrs 36k, and powertrain is 5 for 100k, so thus no big mods to the engine...

    haven't decided if I wanted to mod this engine yet anyway... there is a tune (flash), upgraded intercooler, and such that could have me at at least 300whp, we'll see... I still have always wanted an egt, and swap the gtx in, def a goal of mine, but i have a bronco which I'm working on for fun as well

    funny gm story, some guys in my shop just came from a dealer that ended up closing its doors about a week ago. He was talking about the venture mini van warner bros. edition. the owner brought it in because the battary was dead, LONG story short, 6 months of fighting with the dealership getting alternators swapped and battaries swapped gm sent specialists to spend the night at thier house to see what in the hell was going on... NOTHING. so GM finally decided they were just going to buy the van back and like the day before to that transsaction the dad walks past the garage and sees a light on, so he goes out, (keeping in mind the warner bros edition had the video screen and a vcr)... He found his 9 yr old son asleeep with porn playing in the van!

    On top of all that the reason this story can be told is because the dude actually fessed up and came in and told the story and that all was good.

    good times eh? the porn will do it every time!

    Nice Sky there. Hey have you heard of www.windrestrictor.com ? Some very close friends of mine run it and have really cool designs for many roadsters including the GM Kappa. It's a clear glass panel that fits between the seats and you can choose any design to be laser eched into it and light up the color of your choice.
