Re: End of the PPV?

http://www.foxnews.com/auto/2017/05/25/holden-builds-final-chevrolet-ss.html I was surprised to see that only 7,305 PPVs were sent to the US. That's got to be a record for the least amount of a car model to be sold each year. I'd be curious to know what the final count is for 9C1 vs 9C3, V8 vs V6, ...

Re: DOD/AFM issues

I bought a Range Technology AFM disable device. I have the Solo axle-back exhaust and the 4-cyl drone sounded like crap. The device plugs into the diagnostic port so you don't have to get the ECU reprogrammed. This is especially good if your car is still under warranty or you need to get the car ins...

Re: Show off your wheels ON YOUR CAR!

I haven't been on here for a while. Not much new to say. You guys probably remember my car with the 19" Cadillac CTS wheels. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-MEGQ7Oy1jOY/U-fvSWakvlI/AAAAAAAAMsY/FQbZCUW0ng4/s912-Ic42/DSC_0175.JPG I had chrome 2010 Camaro wheels on it but they rubbed with the stock ...

2014 GM Nationals at Carlisle Fairgrounds June 20-22

It's that time of year again for the GM Nationals!!
I'll be there as always.
Looks like The Tech is in the Hot Rod Power Tour this year, so they wont be there.
Be nice to see some other PPVs there this year.
Hoping to see a few SSs also.

Re: Greetings!

We were trying to decide whether to drive to Indiana to look at a red one or to Connecticut for a Karma one. Conn was closer, so we went there. We love the color too, and we get compliments on it all the time. So far we have the Holden fog light and side markers, G8 rear spoiler, Solo axle-back exha...

Re: Greetings!

Welcome

I see you got or are getting a Caprice in the color Karma.
Pretty cool, I also have Karma.
As far as I knew I was the only one.

Re: G8 rear seat

That looks really nice. I'd like to be able to fold down all or part of the back seat. On another note, can you tell us more about the Commodore wagon conversion? If there was a Caprice wagon available I would have bought that instead. There's a place out in Denver that is doing some conversions to ...

Re: tire wear problem

The car had 8,000 miles on it when I bought it in March. It has 17,000 now. So 9,000 between the 2 sets (the tires that came on it and the Continental Conti Sport 3s on the CTS wheels) The car had an alignment before I bought it according to the Car Fax report. The stock wheels were a little over in...

tire wear problem

Well, it seems there's something wrong with the car, it's wearing out the back tires in 3 months. The first set I did some road racing and 1 drag race with them. So I thought that was the problem. But I just put the stock wheels on in November and they are bald too. Front tires are fine. My son is a...
