believe me it was tuff damn near got a divorse over it,but i was not going to give up my g.n.she's my dream car, bought her back in 91.My wife finally appreciated my my willingness to go without alot of things to keep this black bad azz car.Ill keep the chit chat down ,just real excited.:biggrin:
 
Welcome,
I'm in Washington, too. If you need help, drop me a note and I'll help you out. There are a few of us Turbo Buick nuts that reside in Washington state. There are a bunch just north of the boarder, too.
 
Well, if you didn't get a divorce, you might not be so lucky this time around. There has been so much development in parts, electronics, etc. in the past eight years that at times it can seem impossible to divert your attention away from the almighty GN. The dark side is strong with you grasshoppa'.

Your rolling the dice man. Don't say I didn't warn you. :p

Welcome aboard! Not sure of your knowledge base with these cars but I think you will find that everyone here is willing to help you along. As you get started on your project and hit a snag or two just post your questions and we will do our best to help you out.
As stated above there are lots of new parts on the market to help you achieve your goals. I would recommend to do as much reading as possible and that will get you up to speed fairly quickly.

Glad to have you aboard.

good luck on your project, it's good to hear that she will be back on the road again
 
Welcome!

I gave my wife the option, booze, drugs, gambleing, women, OR the buick.

we now have 4 TR's( including a GNX) so I guess she made the right choice! LOL
good luck, and post away, its cheap information! ( and good too )
