She was traded in at the local Chrysler dealer for a minivan at the tender age of barley 3 years old. "Grandma" didn't drive here in the winter as can be seen if you take a look at anything under the car.
With its twin blue pin stripe, security etched glass and misc parts around the car, and doggie kibble I found under the back seat its apparent that Grandma liked to take it easy.
I had planed to rock it out with some Eagle wheels and the usual custom parts everyone likes to toss on their regal but Everything GSX just fell into place,
With just over 27k (2006) miles on the speedo when she rolled into my arms she sits around 49k (2011) miles now in hibernation for the winter months.
With enough goodies to sneak into the 13's she has made it to every regal madness so far and has even taken in a few bucks for staying "slow" in the brackets.

Cue the AC/DC music. I bought the car on Thursday, October 10, 2013 with 54k on it.
Wednesday, October 16, my brothers (GSXperience54 and Emrock32) and I took it to the local dragstrip to get some baseline runs in. Mark (Emrock32) had the best time of the night with a 13.72. Muncie.jpg 100.47KB 1 downloads
We took it home, and started taking it apart to make it faster the next day. A VS Cam, Gen V blower w/MPS, and a P+P throttle body were all either in the garage waiting to be put on, or immediately bought to make the car faster. Here is the last pic of the car with a Gen 3 blower on it. LastPicWithGen3.jpg 155.06KB 1 downloads
On October 22, while still waiting for parts in the mail, we started prepping it for the cam swap. Mark (Emrock32) stopped by to help, but only had my limited tools to work with. Here is a pic of him using a cut-off downpipe that is still attached to stock manifolds as a breaker bar. DownPipeBreakerBar.jpg 97.8KB 1 downloads
The goal as of October 22, 2013 is to get the car put back together and down to Muncie Dragway one more time on October 26, 2013 (Last day of the season) and to run a 12.85 or better since my last GSX ran a 12.86.
