    The cult is us. I'm currently mulling over grabbing a 1992 CS convertible the same color as my 1994. It seems to be a nicely upkept car. Sure wish it were a 1994 or 1995 but you can't have everything

    So I've had 2 GTP's so far, but this is my first Buick Regal GS. bought it from a grandpa and it was very basic looking when I bought it. Since buying it a couple weeks ago, I've tinted the windows, installed 4 Buick puddle door lamps, white face gauges, scangauge ii, black-housing headlights, zzp F-body brakes, tinted the taillights, installed red reflective lettering on bumper, custom front license plate and holders to match car theme, and took out the window and shift bezel wood trim and painted it flat black to match the rest of the car. I'll post pics when I get it all done, still in the

    I've been told that my two W's will be valuable someday. No matter, that's not why I have them. I enjoy them for what they are and how much joy they give me. If they do end up gaining in monetary value, that's great. If not, oh well. They're not going anywhere.

    With all the new RWD high HP stuff coming in the last 10 years or so now, I have a hard time thinking these FWD drive cars will have a big collector market. I'm guessing a small niche market and a cult following for these cars will be around for a long time yet. I've been following Corvairs, owed a corvair, and 15 years ago $10,000 was a ton of money for a restored Corvair. The guys on the forums back then said you don't build one of these to make money. Back then $10,000 would have bought the nicest Corvair out there. That was typically a 1965-1969 Corvair. Now I've seen them sell into

    Interesting article. If those valuations are accurate, my '95 CS convertible was a better investment than I initially thought. I basically bought the thing because it was immediately affordable but I had no illusions of it ever being a particularly valuable collector car, despite their apparent rarity. In the time I've owned mine, I have only seen two others on the road and only one CS coupe, despite the city where I live having been home to one of the region's strongest Oldsmobile dealers. To my mind, one of the major arguments against it achieving cult collector status is their build quality

    How to install aftermarket Remote Keyless Entry?

    This IS '91.......do not know for sure if there were any alterations in the wiring configuration. ess essentially the relay just reverses the current flow thru the door lock motors to command them to open or close.

    How to install aftermarket Remote Keyless Entry?

    You'll need to get your hands on a wiring schematic for the vehicle, preferably the factory manual to detail the system characteristics, I take it you're thinking of something like a Viper 1 way entry system?, they usually include their own rough schematic for tapping into the car's harness.

    I managed to never have to do an LQ1 timing belt the whole 14yrs we had the 94. I did pull the cover off and check its appearance every oil change, but that's about it.

    Door Panel Trim

    I've thought about using a GMT 800 door panel trim piece. It has a very similar shape to the 2nd gen GP. I bet it could be cut to fit and then glued on. That trim piece in those trucks is not as brittle as the ones in the 2nd gens. I need to replace the one in my 2000 GTP. It has a crack in it, and I just glued it back on to fix it temporarily.

    3G Impala issues

    I got a 2008 Impala for $200 with 140K. It was about to get scrapped for a brake issue but otherwise is a pretty solid car. To fix it, the shop had quoted $2000. The car had other issues and needed to pass inspection so the quote ties in other issues like the headlight being foggy and needing to be replaced, the car not shifting out of park and the key not releasing upon being shifted back to park. Both issues require a push of a tab hidden in the trim. The plan is to flip it and hopefully make about $300 on it (Would try to sell for $1500 which means I can only spend about $800 o

    Glad I found this site randomly and am surprised I got this username. I have a '93 Regal Limited coupe that I've ben slowly fixing up, and it's getting real close to being buttoned up. This is my third W body car and favorite. Had another '92 like this that wasn't anywhere near as nice and a '99 Grand Prix GT (recognize the wheels?). Wondering if I can connect with anyone that has parts cars, leads for parts, info for repairs etc. Have done a lot mechanically and probably this afternoon be replacing rear pads. Have some exterior cosmetic parts coming my way now also but sourcing clips to hold

    3.4 Water Pump 1994 CS

    First timing belt I ever did was a LQ1, has made every one since seem like a walk in the park! I still don't think I can properly do that job in less then 6 hours end to end. Not that I've tried to rush it at any point. A 94' should be slightly easier.

    I remember years ago it was said that they had many issues with them but I have owned at least one with full digital cluster and despite its age it worked pretty flawlessly for the most part. Only thing it lacked was RPM which kind of sucked but some of them could be programed to display it if one knew what they were doing. There's a few things I'd like to do now if I knew how to "hack" the computer, such as adjusting the calibration of the ABS for bigger tires. That would take a lot of specific knowledge though I'm sure; there might only be a handful of people who could do such things.

    The general population will get bored of the generic 4 door sedans and station wagon SUV transgendered vehicles, perhaps that land battleship feeling of driving large American cars will be sought for the nostalgic feeling and W-bodies could feel that niche.

    For people from the outside it was a minor revision. Can't blame em for not following every last change they made over the years. I may move this to General to get it some more attention. Haven't decided yet. Its interesting to me that these are coming around as something collectible. Its funny. Then again back in the late 70's my dad drove a 69' Camaro convertible as a regular old car, was nothing special then... not saying that our cars will ever stain that status but... On the other other hand I kind of like them being ignored at large by "collectors".

    The article says no changes of note were made to the ‘95 model. They need to do some more research.

    Hey, I’m pretty new to the car community in general. This is my first car, bought and paid for on my own. It’s in pretty nice condition, only 116k on the clock. A pretty nice oil leak and a tire that goes flat but other than that pretty much no issues.

    As I’ve had a number of LQ1s, I cannot argue that done up nicely that the 2.8/3.1 engines sound so much better.

    Fix that yourself with generic line, because that's 100% what the dealer or any shop would do because it's extremely unlikely the factory line is still available at this point. Any auto parts store should carry something of a suitable diameter to splice in. Besides what they have for you to look at yourself on the shelf, they have spools of all kinds of hose in the back they'll cut to length for you.

    Removed my blown transmission from one of my TGP's last week. Figured I'd share. Feel free to laugh. It made a hell of a boom and a hell of a mess when it went.
