O/T- My new hot rod.

Got my new gas getter machine. 30-35 mpg and tons of power and doesn't kill you to drive it like the truck does. Also gives me more time and options to work on the truck with longer down time.

Re: O/T- My new hot rod.

joo be bad-ass, mon.

haha

I almost thought it was a Chrysler. Isn't that a Buick 6000 or whatever they were called?

I went tire shopping today at the place where the original owner of my truck bought the tires. There are two pair. One pair is Dunlop something or other that self-cleans at 15mph or above (useless for M+S like it says on the sidewall) or a Remington ST. Well, they don't have the Remingtons anymore. Once I found out they couldn't get them anymore I didn't mind telling them they were idiots for putting tires that were .75" in height different (and both pair still have the little casting nipples on them) from one another which means something like 2.5" of circumference difference (as I try to take three quarters of Pi in my head).

I just realized something. I type a lot. Perhaps if I forced myself to do "seek & destroy" typing I wouldn't type such long winded replies.

Re: O/T- My new hot rod.

It's an '87 Buick LeSabre Limited with a 3.8L 6 cyl. Car and motor has 225,000 miles and motor still is very strong and uses no oil. The tranny is about a year old and the paint is 2 years old. Tires areabout a motnh old and the wheels are 1-2 years old. This is my mom's old car. She got sick of loosing hub caps so got these spiffy 14" Enki wheels for like $50 each. Not a bad car for $1000. $145 a year ins too [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: O/T- My new hot rod.

Doh. I always get them backwards. Buick LaSabre and Pontiac 6000s were the same thing, right? I'm trying to make sure I'm not losing my mind.

$1000 is a steal.

How much is the insurance on your truck? I'm paying $450 for 6 months for PLPD.

Re: O/T- My new hot rod.

OK, let me ge this straight, you're paying less than what I am for full coverage plus $2500 rider for "customizing"?

That's not fair. How old are you? If you were an antique then I'd understand. However, I didn't think you were any, if much, older than me.

Re: O/T- My new hot rod.

3.8 Buick engine... watch for coolant leaks at the intake manifold in the rear coner closest to the firewall. I've replace quite a few intake gaskets on those rigs.

Other than that, cool cruisemobile.......

Re: O/T- My new hot rod.

$2500 a year? sounds about right. Mines just under $1200 for 6 months, in my Tahoe. On my truck I've got full coverage, towing, everything you can get for a truck, and it's like $700 for six months. No traffic violations, no fender bender's, not a damn thing, they just don't like 19 year-olds. I've even got a good driver discount, and the multiple vehicle discount, because I'm on my dad's plan. How do you have your plan customized? You have your truck appraised with all your mods or something?
