    I miss my car.....

    Guys, as you know I sold my 3s, about a month ago. It was a 94 SL







    I bought a 2005 Grand Prix GXP in replacement. Its not that I dont like this car, As I love the power and comfort that the SL was missing, I just miss the lines.... Oh the lines....Haha. I keep on coming on here to see whats up and i feel like a axe digs into my side because I sold Black Betty....




    BUT DAMN I MISS THAT CAR. I have to get another one ASAP. Damn you college!!!!
    Ahhh, One last fix. And it would literally be perfect for ......prolly a week BUT! thats still a week of perfection.

    I miss mine a bit. What I miss is the low payments. What I don't miss is randomly breaking things and the maintenance. I was spending as much on maintenance and car payments as I am now on the Evo. Ridiculous, lol

    Lol, isnt that the truth. I DO NOT miss the constant problems I had. Although, the problems did teach me a lot about car that I more than likely would have never found out. I DO like the Gas Mileage I have now. I know its a v8 but I am getting 28mpg on high way and I NEVER had that in the 3k. Power and Comfort are also better. But it just does not have that 3s......feel...

    I secretly miss mine as well... Although it was my descision to take it off the road, I regret everything about it, I should have waited to buy another one to do the "everything at once" mod.

    The only time I've ever calculated my mileage on a long highway trip, I averaged 27mpg...

    Yeah, I learned to wrench on the VR4. I did the struts on the Supra, and oil changes, but never did anything else. I did nearly everything except the VSS on the VR4, haha.

    How did you not get 28-ish mpg on the highway? I averaged 26mpg round trip on a 360 mile trip, and that's including a really spirited blast through the mountains.
