    For the most part. I bought it in August and until this week I hadn't even drove it due to working on it. Only mods thus far are Hooker cat-back, hotwired Walbro, and new shocks.

    Great car. I run the Hooker cat back myself. Good thing you have the Walbro hotwired but get yourself a new fuel pressure regulator (even a non adjustable 237 from a TTA) and dump the factory airbox (I used Mark Huefman's Big Mouth kit, but you can build one yourself cheaper) for notable gains.

    Are you on any of the Turbo Buick sites?

    I don't generally like American cars, but that's a nice one. I could probably stand driving that to work.

    Thanks for the compliment. It's original paint that I cleaned up a little. It will be repainted this fall.
