Figured I'd stop by and see how many people from back in the day were still here and was amazed to see that there are quite a few still here. Things seem the same except for the name of the website. But I'll probably stop by here more often. But I know what everybody wants to know and that is how my Caddy is doing. And she is doing pretty good. But once spring rolls around it is looking like she's going to be history though. I'm thinking maybe Buick Regal GS, but who knows. I need to test drive a few cars yet and narrow the list down.

welcome back. a buick regal GS? aren't those supercharged? they're nice cars for what they are.

i will also be looking for a new car soon. i am keeping the '91 seville though, as she is going turbo when i get my other rides up and running.

this summer i am likely to buy one of the following:

dodge magnum R/T,
ford mustang GT,
pontiac GTO,
trans-am WS6,
cadillac deville DTS.

all of the aforementioned cars should be on the pre-owned market this summer, while still under warranty. i shouldn't have to dump more than 25K when i do get one...but we'll see if i do or if i'll wait until a little later.

i am also considering finding a mid-late '70's thunderbird, caprice (impala), cougar, or coupe deville. these cars will have to be considerably cheaper though as they're gas hogs...and i don't intend for them to be a daily driver.

Have you looked around the Auto Donation center on Business 1? Every once in a while they have something really nice in there. Usually gone within a day or two though, so drop by often. I've seen some good deals in there......

I used to stop by there on my breaks back when I worked at Just Tires and every once in awhile they got a half way decent car but like you said they don't stay there too often

Thats the one. Any car they don't move within a given block of time ends up in Pick-a-Part oddly enough. Kinda interesting seeing junkyard cars with window stickers....
