    i cant drive the caprice everyday, its fuckin crazy, the 3200 stall would fry the trans in a month if i used the car everyday, plus I'm not trying to rack up miles on that wonderful engine. Also I beat a 2010 Camaro tonight, you should have seen the look on his face.

    Dunno what a 3200 stall is, but that sounds like a bummer. You driving that big buick around or what?

    sold the buick, made 500 off of it for about 20 hours of work, -50 on supllies. I drive the Aspen around on the weekdays and Caprice on the weekends. Right now I'm thinkin about buying another Cougar cause i really liked the last one, I want a 95 XR7 though, didnt like the looks of the 96 that much, plus the 95 had more options.

    and a 3200 stall motor is like having a clutch on an automatic, the engine wont engage until 3200rpms to reduce rev time, trans gets really hot though.

    ah, better for take offs? I'm guessing it's to put you in the power band before you start moving?

    better acceleration at any point, its like the car is just waiting for you to push down a little more on gas.

    haha, I was lookin through this for memory sake, and a bunch of people thought I should paint my car up like a Bill Blass mkv or vi, and now i own one, funny. Also think I might buy this car back from my friend instead of getting a truck, idk. I can never figure out what I want to do.

    Just stumbled upon this. If you still have the problem with the chrome. Use steel wool with Wax, the liquid kind, just keep the wool covered in wax and it can do wonders.
