I ordered some brakemotive drilled rotors for the front but I’m still deciding on which type of pads to get, ceramic, sintered, cf/combo or OEM? I also see listings for JE5, J56 or Brembos. I have Brembos of course but I thought (they) were the performance brakes. What the?

Just looked at my v sport... kinda nervous to drive it. The trifecta tune (thanks again Michael) makes it nearly impossible to keep my foot off the pedal. And with this rear end issue....

Nice,

I had a cream puff silver 91 Coupe. Needed a few more ponies but I sure liked it. Was surprised to find the fenders were fiberglass.
Awesome. I've seen only a handful of the 90's cream puff / pearl Coupes out there. Agreed, so many of the cars I checked out prior to locating this one had cracked quarter panels and other components. Not the chrome of Grand-Daddy's day, but I guess you gotta shed a few pounds somewhere. Ha!

Those C-body Deville coupes are handsome cars. I would drive one as a daily.

Technically this was yesterday, but took my '16 ATS-V Frost 6M Coupe on it's first road trip! Drove back from the central coast to LA through the mountains and the rain along the beautiful Pacific Coast Highway. What a combo this car is, happy to comfortably eat up miles and then turn into a monster when it needs to.

Seriously, absolutely not as a restoration project. If you have really great friends who will do work for you cheap, it might make a cool rat rod/resto-mod. Even at that it would take an incredible amount of time and money.

Uncovered the war wagon after a long winter's nap in the backyard. Drove her about 40 miles and assessed the imminent needs. Grabbing right front brake, leaky power steering pressure side hose, and rust. Engine compartment fuel and trans cooler lines replacement on the horizon. Otherwise, I know every square inch of the car and have a notebook full of work I did over the years. Last big project was a new stereo w/ subwoofer in 2014.

Bought a little electric pressure washer and a foam cannon. Solid investment.

Nice wash. We're not allowed to wash our cars in the driveway anymore (city bylaw), so this is becoming a pretty rare site. This bylaw is cropping up in more and more cities too.

........ to the car, nothing: It's asleep in the garage.

Vacuumed out the Explorer and did weekly underhood checks. AOK.

Car wash - piece of cake when you live in deep woods, on a good well, with no one living closer than 150 yards.............
