hey Everyone,
I know Limey over from the GBodyForum, he told me to check this place out, so I signed up!

I'm from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
I don't own an A-body, but know lots about them. My brother has owned 3 Skylark GSs, and my buddy's been building his 69 Cutlass since he was 17, now has a 455 4spd M22 rock crusher.

my car is a 1983 Grand Prix, blue with grey interior. Here are some details:

Crane valve springs
Self aligning 1.5 rockers

alarm system, lights cutoff switch (for those "need to hide" moments)
original clock
all else in original condition

top speed 245km/hr
cruising 2000rpm at 100km/hr

I'm still a beginner and I bought the car like this. I've learned alot from it, I enjoy it, beat on it, but I take care of it.

check out my photobucket for some pictures:

I ran the car on slicks last year, but didn't have much luck due to a valvetrain issue:

some trips to the strip, 2010:

There's my car in a jist...

Nice car, welcome Khan. I used to have an Oldsmobile very simular to that and my daughter spun out and hit a guardrail on the xway one rainy night. She sat there and stared as a car bore down on her and hit the left front wheel doing about 40 or 50 MPH. JB
