Default Out with the Lebaron in with the Regal

GS that is. Supercharged 3800. Fully Loaded 65,000 original miles
Runs perfect. I changed the oil, flushed the anti-freeze and I am doing the Tranny
service this weekend and shift kit. I still have a smaller pulley and CAI laying around for this car. I love it! Have been looking for a good clean one at a good price for about 3 years.

That's really nice. I have always liked Buick models. I rented a V-8 Lucerne on the company's dime a couple months ago, beat the hell out of it. It was a fun car.

What is the going rate for a supercharged Regal these days?

I paid 4800 bucks for it with the Lebaron as trade. They gave me 1000 bucks for it.

That's a pretty good price. I love 4 door cars with a little extra power that will seat 4 adults comfortably.

That is the best part Anthony. I really don't want to screw with it as runs perfect and is so damn quiet and smooth on the Highway. However I don't see how the CAI, 1 size smaller pulley and U-Bend delete will hurt it, plus that setup in GTP netted 14.10 is 1/4 miles.

I have already put 1000 miles on it. Now the Trans Am dosen't even have to look outside during the winter.
What the U-bend is.

Get rid of that U bend already! YIKES!

My Mustang runs so dang smooth too now..... it'll run just as smooth with the 351 too, but it'll have way more reserve power for passing.

I insist on smooth running cars. Heck anything I have is gonna spend 98% of it's time on the street.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Good thing that U-bend got rectified.

Nice car. Stealth white to boot!

You're just jealous a stock one will easily run with the far smaller, completely uncomfortable rattlebox known as Eclipse... all the while, ACTUALLY seating four adults and allowing for an exterior view outside the vehicle FROM THE INSIDE. Not to mention it's actually quiet and smooth and won't ever miss a gear while doing its best to churn out a 15 second quarter mile ET.
