Would give a fellow third-gen'er these for $40! They have some curb rash, just FYI. Tires hold and air would work as temp, I wouldn't do any burnouts with them though.

Well then I will see about getting to the bank on Monday to get some cash!

Forever is about a year maybe more. I'm getting a bit tired of it since other things are butting in. I'm hoping to get it going good for spring and get a lot more seat time assuming gas isn't outrageous.
I'm hoping to make it to the North Culvers on Fridays since I'm about 3 minutes from it now.
Haha, found this thread and realized nothing has happened since I posted almost 3 years ago. I did find out my stem seals were leaking. Replaced them and now I have all sorts of vacuum and it starts twice as fast as before. Running rich now that I don't have 8 vacuum leaks.
Still waiting on making it out for a good drive. I have to burn a few chips to get the idle straightened out again but after that it should be streetable again.
I do have a 5.3 and a S400 turbo sitting on the shelf. Just need to pull and rebuild a 4L80e before the teardown starts.

Re: Nebraska people!

Gas is cheap again. I'll be tearing it up this year for sure. At 10mpg a tank goes pretty fast.
Funny, I don't think I touched the car since I posted last. Maybe drove it around once or twice. I've been trying to tie up loose ends around the house and it's only going to get worse with a baby on the way. At least it's a boy so I'll have a 'father/son project' excuse to actually spend time on it. Unfortunately that's another 5-10 years from now.

Re: Nebraska people!

Hi! New user of this site and glad to see all the info. My '90 Firebird was purchased for cheap last year from a guy I work with. But the V6 hasn't been reliable; ignition problems. Ordered an LS1 from a 2000 Camero and it is on the way. My boys and I will try to do the swap ourselves. With so much help online I think we can swing it! We're in Hastings.
