.......... and he must keep it clean, check the oil, and use his paper route money for gasoline.

Actually he works at an ice cream store on the river between college semesters and helps out a contractor friend as a laborer...he does detailing for people on the side so I expect it to be shined to a fare-thee well.

He has full use of my shop and the lift and likes doing maint...he already has been looking up perf parts etc but I explained why I would have to use an LS engine controller or regress the PCM to make it work - not worth the expense. I told him the N* will do until he can find an STS-V someday.

I expect caddy videos online soon that he posts under his 'shades moto' persona

Good for him. He's probably about my age, so I can understand his wanting the car. I've got a loaded '05, baby it, do the maintenance on schedule, and it's been problem-free for the 5 months I've had it. Such a pleasure to own. There's always that "old guy" stigma, but for me that's actually a plus. If my generation hates something, I typically love it. And I always get a kick out of driving friends around, once they get in I always get compliments, and the acceleration on the highway always throws them off guard :bonkers::histeric:

Nothing like a well powered car. The car I have now is one of those "I think I can" drivers cars. When I hear someone say drivers car it makes my eyes roll.

Enjoy that great ride!

In the middle of winter too...that's some serious dedication. Most of my generation refuse to wash their cars in the winter because "ooh, my fingers hurt! Too cold!"

And by the way, are those red calipers?? :shocked2:

yes, from powerstop (rock auto avail) they rebuild them in the US. it has drilled and slotted rotors in all corners and carbon fiber/ceramic pads all corners. its the only way to get these 'fast lesabres' to stop without fade, and you can get 3 sets of pads on a set of rotors, whereas the metallics generally murder the rotor FIRST

The "fast LeSabres," huh? :histeric: That was one I'd never heard of before, but quite accurate. That Deville is not your average Deville. It's nice to see the mod done for actual function and not just for looks (I wasn't sure if this was just a caliper paint job). Sounds like your kid has his head fastened on correctly. Good luck with future jobs!
