    I had a 96 FB this color and have regretted selling it. My favorite color, I hate the orange red color. If I ever get another Trans Am it will be this color.
    I think he was just a douche bag. Took top 5 best in class at a Hagetry show with over 500 cars and 90 in my class.

    Gave up looking for seat foam. Had the worst experience at JoAnn Fabrics getting new foam. What a cluster f*ck of old women! Pulled the seat out and shoved a new piece under my but. Repaired the leaky bladder and put it back in the car. My butt no longer feels the motor under the seat and the lumbar hits the lumbar, no. Longer the middle of my back!

    There's a guy that lives about 30 minutes south of me that has a 2002 MRM WS6 but he never drives it... EVER... I don't quite understand the concept of that, but to each their own. He bumped into me at a show last year and was picking out the flaws on mine, I had to kindly remind him that I was here and his car was in a barn under a cover collecting dust.
    Im only 30 miles from the Southside of Chicago. I actually work there as well. I'm right off I65 and RT80. Very close to I94. As a matter of fact my father grew up on Sheboygan MI, spent a lot of time in Topinabe (If I spelled that correct). We still vacation there every year when time alows. If and when you do come through,I will make every effort to meet up
    If anyone were to nitpic on my ride.....Since I am somewhat stock..I cant put-up....But I will shut him up . Gotta love an ass-clown who can talk it.....but doesn't have his ride there to walk it. I love constructive criticism, In fact I welcome it...but to talk down to or be condescending..I haven't the patience for people like that.

    Order my Melling Oil Pump #10296 today. Plan on using a truck oil filter with this.

    Melling GM Chevy 1994 2006 LS LS1 LS2 LS3 LS6 High Volume Oil Pump 15 More OE | eBay



    Looking over my parts list All I need are:

    Complete gasket set (if anyone has a list please pass on to me)
    ARP rod bolts, harmonic balancer, cylinder head bolts
    New exhaust gaskets
    Bearings for cam & crank (leaving this for shop to order to get right size, what brand should I tell them? Clevite is the only brand I know)

    Clevite will be fine. Let them figure out exactly what you need.

    I think I have a brand new timing cover gasket, front main seal, and exhaust manifold gaskets. I'll check my pile-o-parts tomorrow.

    Went and picked up both side mirrors and a new radio. Someone hit my drivers mirror a few days ago and the passenger side was broke when I bought the car.

    You drive right past us coming down 94W when you trip to Chicago. I make my way up to Ludington, MI a few times a year for work. Not too far from where you are. I hear that area is nice in the summer. Looking at beach houses for a week.
