Thread: What Cars do you have?

    Lemme get my hip waders, because this is DEEP...

    All, repeat ALL Z/28's left the factory with iron block, iron heads, and forged steel crank. There were no exceptions.

    But not all DZ-302 were alike.
    When they left the factory, they certainly were.

    The 4 speed
    was available with Muncie close ratio or a wide ratio and also a
    heavy-duty close ratio {M22} which I helped my high school buddy install
    in his '66 vette.That M22 was like no other tranny.You could shift it
    w/o engaging the clutch if done at the right rpm which is an advantage
    for constant-mesh design.
    Ye gods. Just about everything except large trucks since the 1940's was constant-mesh (better known as "Synchromesh", actually GM's trademark name for it). Any transmission can be float-shifted.

    There was also optional rear end available.
    Been a while, but I recall 3.73's were standard, 4.10 and 4.56 optional, 4.88 as a dealer option. Also a very-rare rear disc option.

    The top end was unmistakably aluminum { Intake manifold }.
    ONLY the intake was aluminum. The heads were iron.


    Even though No torque monster by any stretch the short-stroke
    engine was a revver.The 302 came into to being because of the Trans-Am
    racing circuit limit of no bigger than 5 litre { had to look that up }
    V-8 engines.The closest thing Chevy had was it's sweet corvette
    engine {327 c.i.}
    Actually, they also had the 283...rather than use it, they put a 283 crank in a 302 block to make the 302. The 327 was available in the Camaro (as well as across the line, from Novas to Impalas to trucks), but Trans Am did not permit destroking engines to meet the displacement limit until 1970.

    I need educated input as to the Best Performance car for the Buck.
    I insist an EVO.That is why I own one.
    There's no reason for me to trade in my 2005 EVO if there
    isn't a model out there as good for the Buck.
    I insist there isn't.

    My friend is re-powering his Vega wagon this winter...after 20 years and close to 200,000 miles, the 408 is ready to be retired.

    Probable result: LS motor in a Vega.

    Well, I can't agree with you. I drive a 93 Jeep Cherokee Sport with 253 thousand miles on it and have had only normal maintenance.

    The Progressive message is clear. Only atheists should govern. A moral grounding in the Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, or Catholic faith serves as an intellectual blinder, a disability in administering justice. But what justice or morality do the Progressives base their judgments on? Upon what purely physicalist fulcrum of moral judgment does their certainty rest? In fact, there is none. And this is an essential feature of Progressivism that all Americans need to understand.

    evo and sti are 2 of the best bang for your buck vehicles out there. plus they are easy and cheap to modify and make great hp with just about everything with a simple canned tune, skies the limit with those cars with many many parts available. hell they come hooked up from motor too suspension but they lack interior.

    i used to own an STI and been a fan of the evo. went to buy an evo first but the salesman was a dick to me and treated me like i couldnt afford it so i walked right on over to Subaru and had a talk with their salesman who treated me with respect and interest and the next day i drove my brand new 05 STI into the Mitsubishi parking lot with my middle finger waving at the (*)(*)(*)(*)(*)(*)(*) who missed out on a sale lol.

    great cars for the money and extremely fun to drive. felt like the STI was beefier and stronger off the line and was more fun around corners, but i love how smooth the evo felt running through the gears and feel like the evo had a lil bit more on the high end. also love the fact they came with front mount intercoolers and not top mount like the subaru.

    ugh, only if there was a way to combine those two freaks of nature into one, id never drive another vehicle again lol.

    update on the M3!!!!

    been sitting in a garage for the last 3 months or so, (*)(*)(*)(*)s about to get real. ordered new headers and section 1 pipe, the rest of the exhaust will be purchased very soon. also ordering coilovers and wheels. gonna have all the small dents taken out of it, sand the car down and primer it and have it wrapped in satin black. interior is being gutted as im going with a new scheme.

    lot of work is gonna get done, hopefully ill have all the parts in by october and finished by february.

    just a small bite of whats going on with it, what i explained hasnt even touched the surface of whats gonna be done to that car in the next 6-8 months. cant wait to get started and finished lol.

    My kinda thread. I'm in the process of doing a major front end over haul; new rack, ball joints, tie rods, wheel bearings, turn the rotors, new pads, alignment, new flywheel, clutch, rms, misc oem nuts and bolts, reseal oil pan, sand/wire wheel and paint control arms yadda yadda.

    I'm about half way done, just waiting on some parts, then to reassemble.

    A (*)(*)(*)(*)ty old jap car.

    I often go to autotrader and search for e46 m3's particularly the 98 and I think 99 sedans. I would really like to find a low milage auto for a nice dd. i really like the 2002 m5 body, can't recall at the moment. I drool over the e60 m5 too but just a bit out of reach for me right now.

    What year is your M?

    the 98 and 99 M3 are the e36 models, i like them too. I have a 2004 model, which is the e46(2000-2006) . the M5 you like is the E39 model, and yes they are bad ass. was thinking about getting an e39 M5 but the money isnt right and i have a hard enough time with the gas mileage on my M3, besides i havent driven my M in like 6 or 7 months.

    but if you want an e36 M3 i wouldnt worry too much about mileage because most M owners take good care of their rides. as long as they have taken care of its maintenance then i wouldnt worry a bit, besides you can get those models from anywhere between $4k-$8k .
