    My heater core failed several years ago, found out I already had a factory restrictor in place and yet it still failed. I think when it comes time to changing coolant in my cars they'll all get...

    Yah, do that and you'll notice a huge improvement in pedal feel. It'll stop better too.

    Not a fan of the reverse thing. I've found that I gotta be going straight and need a stretch of about 100ft or so in order to jam the brakes a good couple of times. Then I notice an improvement,...

    I do recall feeling the better grunt off the line with SEFI vs my CFI car I had. But, once you get going, they're about the same. Kishy and I raced and were neck at neck, his '84 vs my '88.

    I...

    The 2.26 was probably only available with the tree speed trans. Would need to swap that tall thing in if a fella wanted it, for some unbeknownst reason. Another thing to keep in mind is that just...

    That's weird, please describe sir. The '94 Grand Am I had would do similar things when stopped. If you revved the engine in park or neutralis you could get the speedo to read 10 or 15mph.

    Being the site's leading skeptic and pessimist, I question the accuracy of your speedometer & odometer and how you were filling the tank at each stop.

    I squeaked 24.xx out of my '88 Town Car once....

    Spray it with the oily shit (Fluid Film) and rock it. I wouldn't even touch the fender, I like that car just the way it is.

    Reminds me of a time when I had recently bought my 2011 Chevy Colorado. I did not know it had a speed limiter, but found out when I noticed some other late model Chevy SUV thought 85 wasn't fast...

    Weren't they all batch fire up until maybe '95 or '96? Mind posting pics? I've heard the '85's EFI set-up was physically identical to the 90's stuff. Only give away is the lack of serpentine...

    Looks minty in there.

    I second what David said. Could also be worth maybe $600? Less junk is better, unless you have nearly unlimited capacity.

    Drivers in Detroit are terrible. For example, they'll try and go around you as you pull or back into a driveway- sometimes on the inside. Although I'd say my worst experience was Florida drivers. ...

    Pretty damn bad, not to mention it'll have trouble idling nice and low too. Those are made for 2000 RPM +, so if you're just cruising around, you'll hate it.

    WTF? Ugh, it's bad enough when people point to shit while you're driving and touch/smear your freshly cleaned glass in the process. That's insult to injury.

    I had so many dead lines on my '85's grid it was easier to say how many good lines it had. I think I repaired seven to ten of them. Fucking kids..

    When I put discs on the rear of the Firebird, that gave the car "crisp" brakes. The mush you feel in your pedal is most likely the fluid take up happening at the rear brakes- the amount needed to...

    Kishy, you gotta drive my '88. Everyone complains about box brakes but I don't mind mine one bit, I think it stops fairly well. Not saying I wouldn't notice an improvement if I upgraded, but I've...

    St. Clair. I think they've got a note on my account or something, because last year they did a pretty piss-poor job and unlike me, I actually bitched about it.

    THat's an awesome truck right there, I love the color combo. Is it the EFI 302 or carbureted something? I've always kind of wanted an '86 with the 302 EFI engine and a five speed.
