I think we can do that

Happy New Year all! Let's keep this board alive for 2021.

@  dezldave961 : (26 November 2020 - 07:26 PM)

Same. While having my GTP from 02-14, I built it for a buddy in 09 and bought it from him in 16. Going all out now while we're still on partial shutdown. Great way to pass the time.

Welcome back earth1. I'm still sticking by my project regal, even if it has been a garage queen for the last couple of years.

@  earth1 : (18 November 2020 - 03:27 PM)

I want to thank those who run this site for their dedication and for keeping this site going through the years. To have a really good Regal GS, one has to have an extraordinary level of dedication to the car that includes a long-term commitment to it, and not just a passing fancy. Similarly, to the people that keep this site going through the years had to have a similar level of dedication and commitment to keeping it going. I just want to tip my hat, pay my sincere respect to this level of commitment, and say thank you. I will try to contribute what I can. I know that these cars are 20+ years old now and a lot of people have moved on from them, but I want to be counted as one of the ones that stuck with them for the long-term. I hope to see others that love their Regals be active here in this site, and for the Regal community to support each other. Count me in.

I finally remembered my password and can get logged in. I have missed posting to this forum. Lots of things to add here from my own Regal GSE project.

@  ejguillot : (20 October 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Well, welcome back!

Glad to hear there are still lurkers around.

@  de.regal : (04 October 2020 - 10:50 PM)

Still lurk every day

@  tpivette : (03 October 2020 - 02:32 AM)

Sucks these forums are as vacant as they are... oh well, there's still the faithful like us!

@  kevandkaye : (27 September 2020 - 02:40 AM)

Yet still, we lurk. :o

@  ejguillot : (27 September 2020 - 01:08 AM)

Yeah, Facebook took over and killed forums.

@  dezldave961 : (26 September 2020 - 03:24 AM)

Ya, most of the original wave of active members have changed vehicles to something (probably) less mod-friendly, with the occasional person in an LS or Hemi that they do some bolt-ons to. Kinda sad that forums faded.

@  ejguillot : (23 September 2020 - 09:02 PM)

Finally updated my signature to match my current Buick.

@  ejguillot : (10 September 2020 - 03:20 AM)

Things are terminally quiet around here...

@  dezldave961 : (29 July 2020 - 04:06 AM)

Just became a moderator on 3800Pro, so that's fun. I know it's gone thru a couple hands since Intense got sold, then that guy sold the forum. Not sure what that'll help, but it's something.

I was thinking about this earlier today while I was trying to find the stock specs on a G8 GT. I think we should make a link on the site home page leading to all the specs (hp, torque, 1/4 mile, 0-60 times, etc.) and maybe a few of the competitors for comparison. This way anyone who is looking for the stock specs could find them on here and also be able to compare the vehicle to some other vehicle like a like year Maxima or something. Also maybe include specs on the PA and the new Regals.

I would be willing to help gather the information or help create this somehow. I don't know much about creating web pages but I would help how I could.

With the info from Chris, Bob, and Jack this deserves to be a sticky. Maybe a moderator can move this to general info and sticky it for us.

I am changing the title to "stock regal specs and information" in hopes people will continue to post good information like they did as we come across it.

Here is one of the original buick regal gs commercial for our gen
