    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.

    Dropping back in!

    Hello All! Its been a good while since I roamed this forum but back in July I plunked down my $$$ for a 2018 Impala Premier In the months that have followed I've done a few mods, learned a LOT about vinyl wrapping and wound up falling in love with this machine like I never thought I would. So much so, I've decided to resurrect the license plate that used to grace my beloved 2001 Grand Prix GT coupe THDRBAT Yup, the Thunderbat rides again. While it may not be a W-body, its a worthy descendant and I look forward to lots of happy miles. (especially since thise jewel only had 9k on the clock when I bought it) Before Current

    Hi! I’m Srdjan, new to your page and wanna share some experience and know-how which i get during fixing my Regal from 95. Bought the car in a relatively bad shape. Was sitting outside for at least 2years without any care. when i bought it, i serviced the whole engine and bring it back to life with fresh new parts. Had several issues with sensors like TPS, IAC and ETC but now driving like a pro and enjoyed it. installed as well the backlight of an Regal GS before facelift (mine is a facelift model 95-96) i love these much more than the stock of facelift. put as well the Grand Prix GTP mesh rims in 16inch which were now painted from white to silver. Gives more an sporty but still stock look. Fitment in back in awsome front naa ok so fare could be less than 1inch more inside but so fare so good.

    New and semi inexperienced,

    Hello everyone! Long time lurker, first time having an account on any forum. I recently bought a '93 Chevy Lumina Z34, and am excited to start my work on it whenever I can. It's currently in another province, at my parents house, so I sadly won't be able to post pictures for a couple weeks. -J

    New member with Regal coupe!

    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 trim on has been impossible.. am hoping some of the old trim clips were salvageable from this trim piece I'm getting. Am thinking of doing rear struts next and maybe the front strut cartridges eventually; am leaning toward KYB for both. With bigger wheels and others in car or stuff in trunk I need slightly more clearance in the rear which KYB complete units should provide. I also need an antenna mast, a new glove compartment door handle, and to figure out e-brake issue (I can see previous owner bought the parts but for one reason or another it's just hanging there zip tied up; may be the one thing I'll have the dealership do but not sure yet). Oh, and a vacuum line from the cruise control has cracked and needs replacement (dealer again? think they said they'd just cut a generic line) as the system won't hold vacuum but does work otherwise. It's in pretty amazing shape and runs great for a '93 with 147,700 miles or so.

    3.1. It’s the SE. Here’s some photos from when I washed it, and a couple from the first couple weeks of owning.

    Thanks for the add. This is my 89 base Grand Prix with the 5 speed. It's been sitting in a field for the last ten years. Still have alot of work to do but it runs well and mostly it's little things like replacing trim parts that rotted off. In early 2000 the car had a ground effects kit put on it and it was to be donated to be a DARE car. Luckily some friends at GM Fairfax and the plant itself volunteered and painted the car in plant. This was right after the buildout for the Grand Prix and the car was being moved North. So this was literally the last Grand Prix ever painted at Fairfax Ks. They also added the wheels from a 2001. After all that time and work the Police Department decided the car had more work in it than it was worth and changed their mind about making it a DARE car. It was returned to the original owner, my dad. He drove the car a little but a blown head gasket got it parked where it stayed till recently. Like I said it has a ways to go. Not quite up to show car status but that's my goal. Thanks for looking

    Looky I got!

    Got this thing torn down today and cleaned up. Ordered some parts. I may have it running later this week. LQ1 parts are all closeout priced on rock auto, the timing belt was only $2.14!

    Back in the Fold

    Hello, I'm a long-time W-Body fan. The first car I ever bought in 1993 was an 1989 Olds Cutlass Supreme with a 2.8L. I traded it in thinking I wanted something faster like a 19-20 year old does. I've missed it ever since. A 1996 Cutlass Supreme with a 3.1L hit the local Craigslist with only 80K miles completely local to the Chattanooga area. I took the plunge and came back into the fold. I'm excited about having my new weekend cruiser. A couple of low hanging corrections are the outside mirror switch and the power antennae cable. Outside of that, I will start tinkering and tuning because most of the car is 25 years original. Jeremy

    1988 Buick Regal Review

    It's long and I haven't watched it all the way to the end yet. Probably nothing any W-body old-timer didn't already know, but still pretty cool to see a W-body review in 2021.

    3.4 Water Pump 1994 CS

    Quick update, I found an independent shop willing to do the timing belt. I got it back yesterday, 6 hours labor and they did a great job. They also wound up replacing some kind of heater line that was about to fail, so that tacked on another 2 hours labor and the part was $150. NOS GM for that part, some kind of long black bar behind the motor Getting back to the timing belt, parts, labor, taxes all told ran just over $1200. I had the timing belt last changed in 1996 so man, this was way overdue. So with the intake gaskets & timing belt all replaced this motor's good for another 100k. I have been using mobil 1 synthetic since mile one on this car, I bet this could be a 300,000 motor, who knows.

    I've got a 95 Cutlass 3100 that just rolled over 254k miles, so I'm jealous of your 80k miles. The good thing about w-body is that pretty much any problem you have with your Cutlass has been experienced by somebody here, either active currently or archived in an old post that we can help you find. Tell us more about the condition of your car, do you know any of the service and repair history? With that low of miles, did it sit unused for a long period of time? Any rust? Was it garaged or parked out in the weather? Are you looking to keep it original or improve anything (suspension, stereo, etc.)?

    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
