    I stick with GM stuff and stock stuff that originally came with the car. fries work w/ ketchup for everyboy and fries work with gravy to only some. so i stick with whats recommended by my cars manufacturer.

    NGK's are pretty popular here as well. I currently run MSD wires but my next set will be granatelli wires (sponsor). I just used plain gear oil, 80-90 I think, for my stock rear with the GM additive. Most all parts stores carry the additive.

    If it were me and I was just getting the car I would do all the maintenance so you know where you stand with the car. Fluids (oil,tranny,rear), filters (oil,fuel,tranny), air filter, plugs-wires and anything else I'm missing. That way you know where you stand with the cars maintenance. I see how some people treat their cars as far as maintenance so there's no telling where the car sits. Everything could be done or nothing.

    look into something diff. as far as fluids go. there is so much better stuff than goodwrech fluids. also look in to autorx.com when you do all of your fluid changes. it will clean out the engine, tranny, and rear end safely. also, i run synthetic throughout my car it protects better
