    I'M BACK!

    still trying to post pictures, remember BBF I'm about as tech savy as a baked potato V6 fwd base model moves out pretty quick, front brembos pull it back pretty quick, duals but exits under the bumper no chrome tips, got a pedal commander will install tomorrow,will let you know how it works out

    I'M BACK!

    Just got a 2013 XTS V6 Black on Black Now how the heck do I change my handle Bruce? XTS JOE?
  3. what would be my pit falls on 2008 STS V8 RWD 61k?
  4. Thanks Bruce, I'll start looking in that direction. Hope you and yours are doing well. Will let you know how it goes
  5. I've been out of the family for a LONG time, last one was a 1996 STS I retired with 310000 miles. I haven't kept up with the new models and don't know what would be semi comparable to that car(that I loved) ATS? XTS? it's all mumbo jumbo would still like a V8 4dr but don't have the money for a V series so I guess its a six. Looking for used 2013-2016 range any suggestions are appreciated.Glad to see the board and a lot of the usual suspects are still here!
  6. Ok here goes Caddys 1985 Eldorado 1989 Seville 1995 Eldorado ETC 1996 STS Non Caddy but loved 1972 Datsun 510 2dr 1973 Pontiac 455 Formula 1978 Trans Am 1969 Scout 800A (everyone should drive one once) 1970 Monte Carlo 1972 Monte Carlo (Factory buckets console tach and gauges) and about 10 more cars that don't make the list best would be the 96 STS edging out the 73 Formula ( Formula was nice but the 96 STS beats them all)
  7. I had the same problem with a conventional battery, left it on a trickle charge for 24hrs to limp it to get tested went out and message was gone and never came back. Only thing I could figure was if the battery is low enough the system won't try to charge it to protect the alt. from burning up. hope it's that simple
  8. I have a silver 2011 Malibu, you have to take that much of the front end off to change a headlight bulb...oh joy! Should have kept the STS
  9. I'm running a gasoline 15000 watt plugged into the meter socket. It's in a plastic enclosure that keeps the noise down pretty well but plan on switching to a natural gas unit soon with auto start and stop, not cheap but no headache and comes in a basiclly sound proof box. Generac seems to have some good stuff
  10. Glad everyone is safe, render assistance when you can, see you around
  11. Saw the purple blob headed for Plano but didn't know if He was still there, haven't checked the board in a while, my bad, Hope things are still good with you.
  12. Long time, no see You may want to put a cut off valve between the tank and carb so you can run it dry without having to drain the tank. My experience has always been the carb gumming up, just a thought
