    Gotta love them Buicks. What are your plans for it? Or are you still evaluating all that?

    Hell yeah you did good - I'm sure the falcon crowd will pout but falcons were just cheap grocery getters, marketed as second cars for housewives (no offense to housewives).

    Don't forget Kanter.com for parts, they carry a full line of suspension, brake, and engine parts and are great folks to deal with.
