Hi all,
I just recently purchased a 1985 2-Door Fleetwood Brougham. It's replacing my old 1990 Nissan 240SX, because I had to make a choice between my two passions for cars: making them faster, and their stereo's louder. In this case, I chose the latter. It'll keep me out of trouble.

In anycase, I chose the Brougham because of its ample trunk space for 12's, and the fact that it's just plain cool having a 20 foot long 2 door car. Eventually I would like to make it into a looker, with big shiny rims and lots of chrome. However, there's no sense in having a cool car that doesn't move because the engine or tranny is shot. In this regard, I'll be looking for help from you all out there. Although the HT4100 in the car has been rebuilt, and only has 25K on it, the tranny is original, and has 150K on it. I'm gonna need your guys' help to keep this baby running. She's got problems that need fixing, and I'm hoping the expertise and experience of this community will help me see these problems through.

Well, thats all for now, you'll see me around the boards soon.

-Don

Well, it surely wasn't me. The old man before me had it rebuilt. It was done by some place called budget engine rebuilds, and I think they screwed it up. I'm looking to drop a bigger motor in it, either a chevy 305 or 350, or an olds 307. I'm also researching tranny's too, I dunno if its worth rebuilding the 200-4r or getting a 700r4. Putting an LT1 with a 4L60E would be the coolest I suppose since its all electronic, but I bet that swap would be a toughie.
