yea, my ID does make you wonder, LOL

just getting started on this car, (just bought it)
not alot I plan to do, but the torque arm upgrade does look appealing,
current plans are to improve traction, (215-60-15 on the rear)
Have to look thru the garage to see what sparks my imagination.

thanks

just wanted to say, car did arrive, in excellent cond, and is everything Carl said it was!

what a blast to drive, I am familiar with turbo buicks ( have had way to many)
so when this car is on boost, it IS a thrill! noticed its 13-14 lbs boost, hmmmm
maybe more boost ?? LOL
