One of my favorite kinda cars.!  =D>   ...V-4 right?Oh crap..I remember now the other 4 cylinders are under the windsheild....  =;   =;   =;    #-o  ...I almost bought one a while back before the stang.... a 99 ...but it was alot more than I was willing to spend at the time...  =P~  ..and the owner would not come down at all...   [-(  ...
Great foundation for lots of N/Apower and if you want go wild and add a charger or somethin...just make sure you change out the rear,,those are WEEEEEEAKKK...   =;

Yea I have been told that,I think I will look into something that the rear discs will switch over to.....I don't know if this rear can be built stronger or not?

I am not going to go crazy with it,but it would be nice to get it into the mid-high 12's with a little shot of juice(50-100),I already have a bottle and solenoids all I would need would be a fogger nozzle =;

I think I will make one that handles well too,its alot of fun to not have to slow down for curves,it handles really well as is but some upgrades would make it better

Still My favorite as well!!!!....  \:D/  ...
Yep..a few friends have the f-bodys and was told low 12's with easy 60's could be done without much trouble...but a bolt-in 12 bolt or 9 inch is the real fix....Buddys 98 maro runs 11.90's and it has a cam,intake, exhaust and alittle bigger rear gear,tune ...and hes ready to plunge and get a bolt in 9 inch..Hes also busted 2 rears since owning it......

Mine is an automatic car so the rear should be safer,at least for now,its got a 3" Magnaflow stainless catback on it and a K&N filter but that is all that has been done to it.It had 71,000 mi. on it when we got it,its a one owner car so its pretty clean,its a lot of fun driving to work in,much more fun than the pickup and much cheaper,the truck was getting 17 mpg but the bird gets around 24 mpg,I am saving half of the payment on it just in gas savings!

Thanks Rod,
         
            We looked for awhile to find this one(low miles,ram air,ws-6 package)but the wait was worth it,I started to get discouraged and started looking at Camaro's but just couldn't talk myself into it, not that they are not nice cars I just like the look of the curves and the hood of the Pontiac as you said. Plus it runs and handles pretty good for a stock car.....like nothing I have ever driven!

The hood is what catches the eye. It is mean looking when looking in the mirror. =;
