I've never owned my own vehicle, but the one that I have driven the most and loved was a 1994 Buick LeSabre Limited that was maroon in and out. It was a pimp ride and had it not broken (after me driving it 4 hours a day 5 days a week for in a year/ 60,000 miles) I would still be rockin it. Hopefully once I get some money I'm gonna get a 99 Buick Regal GSX: pimp ride with power; 3.8L V6 w/supercharger.

but nothing will EVER top my seven-deuce 4 door rusted bucket cutlass. talk about a pimpmobile..... i covered half of it with duct tape and when the grey would flake off leaving nothing but the string-tape it looked like a giant mummy mobile. chicks in college loved it.

I can relate. The Buick I drove was at one point rear ended by a F-350 dualie while we were stopped and he was doing 50mph. My whole fam was in the car and we all got mad whiplash. The best part was he ran (and got away with it!). The whole truck was crushed to an upside down V and the bumper all smashed in. But the frame held and you could see where it held on impact. One reason why I trust Buicks and say they are built like tanks. My dad also rear ended another car (I blame the bad breaks he had at the time). It was a beat up Ford Escort wagon and so the damage to that car was nothing the bumper just popped back to where it was. My dad had to get the grille replaced and a fender. My mom's old van christened the "ghetto van" was a 95 Ford Windstar. At one point it had a missing right mirror (but with the motor hanging by two wires inside the window), hanging rear bumper from getting rear ended on I-95 in delaware, a crack in the windsheild that went from the center of the bottom up and curved so it was in the center of the drivers vision, and 230,000 miles on it. It finally went when it blew a head gasket. I drove two cars into the ground in a year and a half driving both four hours a day 5 days a week. Sorry long rambling. Peace.

I visited RIT as a possibility of applying/attending. It's a nice campus but more brick than I've ever seen. In the end I thought it was just too far from home (Harrisburg, PA) and the campus was somewhat lacking in gender diversity. It's a good school though, I know that it is top in engineering and science type majors and actually has a good art program too. Peace.

I don't know what year you have but I'ma guess the car makes btw 215-245 HP out the engine which would put somewhere between 190-215 at the wheels. I know the car is fast as hell bone stock so a with the mods you have I'll guess you runnin up to 275 HP. That's just a guess though so if I'm wrong don't play me haha. Low 13s is damn respectable and fast. You got a manual boost controller so I'm curious how much psi you feedin into that. Keep it up it looks nice.

3400. The color is a head turner when it's all polished up.

I'll bet I love that sunset orange look and with those stock chrome wheels it prolly shines like the damn sun lol. Last I checked the 3400 (don't know if it has a series I and II like the 3800 had in my old Buick) had between 150-160 HP but a good 200-210 lb-ft. of torque so theres a lot of grunt there. I'm just guessing from what I've read in the past I'll have to look it up to get some official stats.

sounds good to me :smile: I'm a little addicted to facebook :dang: but who isn't?

Gotta love facebook. One website and too many people to know at once. I friended you on facebook. I love the pics of you with Hines and Larry Foote.

In the winter I only run 14psi, but in the summer I run 19psi. My last dyno, I put down 245 whp/287 wtq. That was awhile ago and I'm probably putting down closer to 270 hp at the wheels and about 300 ft lbs. of torque (19psi).

Even 14 psi is respectable and gives a good boost in power. 19 psi is f*ckin nuts to me. Can the engine take that? I was made to believe that runnin up that high on boost is insane and prone to blowin your engine. Am I wrong? I just ask because my friend had (had as in the dumb*ass totalled it) a 99 Mistubishi Eclipse GS-T that was a f*ckin beast....in fact we called it the beast. It was all black and ran 20 psi when he raced it. I don't even know half the shit that he had done to it but I know he had full exhaust an intercooler the size of an aircraft carrier and he took a lot of shit out of the back to lessen the weight (backseat, soundinsulation, etc I know because I rode in it the one time in the back just sittin on a mat on the floor right above the exhaust while he was doin 140mph on the freeway). It looked real nice on the stock 17 in. wheels. To give ya an idea about how fast it was......one of his kills was an Evo VIII....by two car lengths. If only he hadn't destroyed it......oh well. Peace.
