    East Coast Buick Regional / MAGNA Car Show - Cecil County Dragway 9/11/2021

    I don't know for sure, but I don't think it matters if you belong to any of the Clubs. I doubt that anyone with specific knowledge will check this thread... You could call John or Jim (#s on flyer) if you want to check.

    2021 Season is here!

    Whoa! That is cooking :cool: Congrats! I'll bet going that fast with a nearly 2-ton brick is "quite the rush", having it stable must help. Keeping it cool does not seem to have been an easy road... and the brakes must be fantastic as well.

    Vacuum vs Manual brakes

    (FWIW) My "little green car" came from the factory (U.K.) with vacuum/power brakes. When I got the car it did not have the booster... just a very "firm" pedal. I drove it that way for a lot of years. Later I changed to a different master cylinder - for less pedal effort - and am pleased with the...

    Turbo 3.8 into '93 Buick Roadmaster wagon

    Seems like most states have cars over 25 years old as "exempt" from emissions? Maybe do some searching around... I hate to count on my memory - but I think that swap has been done a couple of times into Roadmasters. Jim Dunn (Buick Turbo Performance) did one - maybe that is the same one that...

Also they work fine if it ever gets cold in the garage (especially vs fluorescent) You can find everything from those screw-in "deformable" units to $20 Harbor Freight 4-ft lights, on up big $$ types and many...

    Opinions Wanted. New(ish) Ride being considered

    fwiw - I've always said that if it makes a lot of noise and goes fast - I probably like it :rolleyes: ) It doesn't seem like you are asking for suggestions... but shouldn't you be able to find a variety/selections of Gen 5 or 6 Camaro SS examples around? There would be your bullet-proof LS...
