Hey all, getting back into the W-body world! I've had a '92 GP SE with a 3.4/5spd (blew it up), a '97 GP GT and a '00 Regal GSE. Now I'm looking into picking one up for $1000. It's a '92 GP SE with a 3.1 auto. 160k miles and a little rust but I've seen way worse. For Minnesnowta it's not bad. From another W-body collector. He also has a blue '92 Petty edition.

If your close to Iowa, there's another 92 SE 3.4 5-speed car on CL if you want another one.

No, but it's like that. He has to replace the timing belt on the Petty car before he sells me the white SE. The white car is his main vehicle. Lol Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

That looks nice. I would check the trailing arm mounts for rust.

Not too shabby.  Front valence looks good too.

Good, the Transmission should be solid then.

Actually the trans shifts very nice and firm. The only drawback is the driver's rear quarter is pretty rusty under the cladding and the rear trailing arms are getting crusty...but I checked them and they're still solid. No wiggling or any sort of movement. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

I fell for a joke awhile back about the valences on these cars.  So many of them are busted up because people run into whatever, parking blocks or critters.  There is a running joke that if the valences are busted, then the tranny/radiator can get more cooling air and not crap out.  I was gullible and bit on it! 

 

Finding a good valence on these cars is becoming more and more difficult.  It's good that it already has a nice one, makes it much easier for you.  If you get the chance to find a good spare one, it would be wise to grab it.

That was an old member insisting the tranny cooler wouldn't get enough air flow. He was likely not completely unjustified. That was somewhat before my time so I never met him. The thread used to be here somewhere.

Haha speaking of the valences...the guy has a NIB valence from the original owner of the Petty car. The original valence has a few rips in it and bought a new one when they were readily available in the mid 90s. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

That's awesome!  Maybe you could work out a deal if he wants to sell it.  I would try really hard.

He already said he is putting it on the Petty car when he restores it. I was gonna ask him about getting the original one but he already said he wanted to keep it. It had 2 big tears in it so you COULD fix it, but it would be a helluva job. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

Don't know how I missed it but just noticed your white car has white painted crosslaces, that's so sweet!  I hope you keep em.

I got lucky and was given a NOS one when I bought my TGP, kept it when I sold it, and luckily a year or so later ended up with my GTP

Standard issue for RPEs to have color matched wheels. Definitely looks pretty sweet

I see so many silver or aluminum colored ones, the white is really refreshing.
