    I posted a little while back about my Caprice and my Winter car which was my crown victoria.

    I bought the crown vic for 1500...didnt like it (its a ford, Im a GM guy and it needed to much work) so I sold it, made my money back, and bought this...for 700 bucks...
    The engine is clean as a whistle, no rust at all on the underbody, it was elderly owned and only has 66,000 miles! Interior is perfect. Everything works apart from the power windows. I love this little car. Sadly this car had a life of sitting out in the sun. It has actually been repainted before in the late 90's.
    1987 Oldsmobile delta 88 Royal Brougham. It needs NO work, has BRAND new tires runs like a champ and to top it off, 24mpg city, 28hwy.
    Isn't that a 3.8l v6?

    Looked it up, the 1960-1966 292 I6 had 165hp, who knew. No V8 option until 1965 (although back in the day you could order any engine pretty much, much more lenient than today's automotive industry).

    My '64 C15 came with one of the I6's, the 230 or 292, I wouldn't know. It currently has a 455 olds in it with a 350 turbo iirc. It's red with a white top. I do like the two tone style on these trucks, the baby blue would look pretty nice. I'm all for it. My dad used to have a baby blue one with a white top with an old 350 down in it, since my grandpa gave me the '64 he decided all the boys should have a C15 in that generation and we got a few :) He had the '65, I have the '64, and my brother had a '65 that was satin black with orange trim pieces. It had a 383 stroker in it from what I remember, but the guy my dad had paint it fucked it up because he was driving it around and it wasn't ready.

    My brother traded his to a friend IIRC, my dad sold his, and I'll keep mine until the day I die.
    That's pretty good for a 6 cylinder and if I didnt like it the way it is I would try dropping my Dodge Rams 360 V8 Magnum in it but that would be a bitch to do and I feel like it would take away some of the character. But the 292 from what I've heard is one of the best motors ever and is damn hard to kill. I'm debating on painting the rims white.

    It's actually pretty rad, would you repaint it the same color?
    I dunno if they still have this color available in stores, but possibly! I like it, it just looks like hell. If not, maybe white since the interior is red! It's been raining all day and the car LOOKS way better when the paint is wet from the rain, because of the clear coat. So if i do deiced to not paint it, I may just re-clear coat it to make it a teny bit better.

    Does it come with a complementary pack of cigarettes?
    Sadly it did not, but I wouldn't want an old granny pack of pall malls or some shit anyway ;) so I put in my own.


    Isn't that a 3.8l v6?
    I know, right? Crazy as hell. My dad used to have a 94 Buick Century with the 3400 in it, or maybe it was the 3100, but he got a respectable 25city. I don't really understand how at the time they had the v6 engines with throttle bottle that were SUPER efficient, then I have the 5.0lit 305 V8 in my Caprice that gets a 12 miles to the gallon.

    I dont know, but I wont argue with it.

    I dunno man, I dunno. Not pictured is a fourth Civic, identical to my new purple (Both automatic EX coupes) one but the body is a lot nicer. I'll be taking most of the body panels off of it for the new purple slug since they are already painted to match.

    That truck belongs to a kid named Justin, we just moved shop so it's sitting out at the place on a trailer. It's an S-10 that we swapped a 229 V6 w/high rise into, and he has some fugly 20s on it. Not terrible looking rims, but terrible on that truck. Would look much better on a newer Camaro or something.

    I wouldn't own 20s, personally. I think rims over 17 inches in diameter should be kept away from anything that "those one people" haven't gangsta'd out.

    Although some 16-17 inch rims are fucking ugly as well.

    Reminds me of my friend Sarah's riced out CRX.



    I'm so sorry, you poor CRX. The terrible thing is that it was an HF model, one of those that gets upwards of 45MPG. :/ Now it's a pink bumblebee with a VTEC head with no VTEC hooked up and lambo doors. It used to be really clean .___.

    CRX's are pretty rare for me. Last one I saw was missing literally all of its fenders and missing the hood. Had some bigass turbo on it that looked like the ones you'd see on a drag racer.

    In America? Nope. As long as it still passes emissions and inspection (if your state has them).

    In my state there is only a tagging/title fee, you could be driving a rusting pile of garbage and it'd be road legal with tags/insurance.

    Justin knows how we do it

    Also, I had a filter on it but it wasn't clamped down, I need to get a clamp for it from the shop. When I got it, it didn't have anything on there. Back when I used to have it, it was all stock under the hood, and the battery was in a diamond-plate aluminum box in the trunk. For some reason they moved the battery to the front but removed the airbox to do so!

    I have an OEM battery box to set the battery in the stock position, which is where I have it half-ass sitting now.

    It's a little travel trailer that I'm staying in until I get my house built on that slab down there.

    I say little, it's actually pretty big. As big as some studio apartments inside, just allocated more lengthy. Real nice setup, got a heater and A/C, gas stove, fridge, full bathroom although the bathtub is a bit tiny. I have two beds, one is a full size twin bed the other is a couch that folds out. It's p slick.

    Aren't those just Corollas with a slightly better radio?
    Yep. Geo was a joint effort between Toyota and Chevy. Hell, when I was taking the dashboard apart to replace the lights, the parts were stamped, "TOYOTA."

    Geo was not a joint venture between Toyota and GM, it was a subdivision of GM developed to sell captive imports under. In exchange for the Corolla, GM gave Toyota their Cavalier (Look up the Toyota Cavalier, the TRD version looks p badass).

    Other cars used under the Geo name were the Suzuki Swift (Or Suzuki Cultus depending on what side of the pond you live on), the Isuzu I-mark/Gemeni, Isuzu Impulse with a funky nose on it (The Geo Storm), and the Suzuki Sidekick.

    The Prizm was the only Toyota under the Geo name and one of only two name tags (the other being the Nova in the '80s) given to the only Toyota that Chevy used in its lineup, the Corolla.

    The only joint venture that Toyota and GM ever had was the NUMMI plant, and that ended badly. I'm pretty sure that plant makes Tesla cars now.

    You're awesome.
    I love the late 80s Trans Ams more than any other car, and I like Mustangs too- that's a fantastic picture right there. If it didn't have a random person I don't know in it, I'd have a new desktop background.

    Man, that's beautiful.

    As today was my first day off from work in a while I decided to give the FRP some TLC as she was looking pretty worse-for-wear after the trackday. All-in-all about 4-5 hours this morning spent on a detailed clean inside and out then as it was a nice day I decided to go on a quick B-road blast and took some shots whilst I was out:

    It's all purple again!

    Gotta get four 8mm bolts and nuts with some broad washers to fix the bumper gaps and it'll be all good. Next is refinishing some of the claer coat and trying to buff out some of the scratches, I like the purple and I think I'm going to keep it that color.
