Yikes, well hope you guys get that resolved, so it stays active enough to remain viable.

the sign in process is broke because the captcha is non-functional. That is why no new members.

Somewhat true, but I'm not going to get too real about the demographics of Regal owners past & present. It'd be out of place on a Regal forum, and make people cross-eyed coming from a Regal owner. :blink:

@  Marchi1 : (28 April 2021 - 06:34 PM)

we are also hitting another round of buyers...and the group is again the young crowd and realizing that the older Regal is a bargin and normally better maintained than the GP of the saemarea.

Hey, that's where I buy my top-of-the-line Spectre intake parts for my hotrod! (pre-turbo)

@  alemstrom : (26 April 2021 - 11:33 PM)

I'm here at Advance Auto

We're now in a preservation community that some may discover, but it's been spread thin and the traffic has shifted away from the initial sharing styles (Tim/Zoom discuss this on ZZP podcasts, when those 4cyl goobers let them talk).

@  dezldave961 : (24 April 2021 - 02:20 PM)

The vehicles themselves dictate the demographic and activity level based on their following. GTP's drew the majority of the L67 crowd, including myself, and current 4/6/8cyl offerings of the last 15yrs are where 99% of our former peers and newcomers have shifted to.

@  Marchi1 : (21 April 2021 - 02:25 AM)

There are a few who come here for the info.....

@  dezldave961 : (19 April 2021 - 10:57 PM)

Ya, 3800/Wbody forums have cleared out. I hear there's some FB groups, but I'm ont on there and it sounds similar to the newbie-centric folks I see the last 1-2yrs on 3800pro & GPF.

@  glendayle : (18 April 2021 - 03:59 AM)

Man this thing used to be hoppin' on the daily. How times have chagned.

@  glendayle : (18 April 2021 - 03:59 AM)

LOL, someone chatted?!

@  dezldave961 : (17 April 2021 - 02:04 PM)

Just keeping the candle lit, as I mentioned on my only remaining local ClubGP chapter of the 3-4 I was very active on in my 20's

@  Marchi1 : (15 April 2021 - 07:00 PM)

nope...just us old timers

@  WildGS : (15 April 2021 - 03:56 AM)

are people still here?

@  dezldave961 : (12 April 2021 - 09:46 PM)

Hey, chuggin' along. Just finished a big overhaul on my turbo build after 12yrs.

@  Nateteo : (12 April 2021 - 05:56 PM)

literally, the last time I logged in was 3 years ago hows everybody doing

@  dezldave961 : (12 April 2021 - 04:43 PM)

Ya, they do open bracket at GS Nationals. I may go if I'm free, just to attend, even if there's no cage, yet.

@  Marchi1 : (12 April 2021 - 01:32 PM)

I am taking the SC car.I am sure it is a big event as it is in Bowling Green, KY so yeah will need to be fully copliant, but I think there is a bracket class. God I hope so

@  dezldave961 : (08 April 2021 - 01:50 PM)

*S&W Racecars cage for 95-99 Monte... I'd actually fit the xTSM class, aside from not being a RWD, if I swapped the Air-Air I/C back in. Probably wouldn't be competitive just yet, but I'd like to see them squirm.

Is it possible to change the stock headunit in some way so that i can listen to even FM stations such as for example 92.2 or 92.4?

 

As it is now, i can only tune to odd station such as 92.1 or 92.3.

 

I Read somewhere that in some country the stereo could only tune to even stations instead, and i would like to change my stereo if it's possible!

 

I Know for example that this could be fixed in old Corvette delco stereos by soldering in a diode on a Circuit board.

Hi Erik. Welcome!

Sorry I don't have an answer for you, as here we (until recently at least) only had need to tune the odd numbered stations. And while I've seen some new factory radios that offer the even frequencies, have yet to see an aftermarket one that would work.

 

However, I'm not exactly the expert on the subject, and not not actively looked for them.

 

Good luck. Hope you find what you're looking for.

Well I spoke too soon. Have you looked at the next discussion in line below yours, where a member did a very clean install on an Android unit?

If not, check it out. He's got a detailed writeup with images. I didn't read the entire thread, but it sure looked like a good fit.

I have now found a solution for this problem. I didn't want to replace my stock head unit for two reasons.

 

One reason is that I wanted to keep the steering wheel controls functioning, although I know that _might_ be possible to do if you buy an aftermarket steering wheel controls module.

 

The main reason though is that this car is very rare here in Sweden where I live, and I want to keep it looking stock. Very rare is actually an understatement, since there are only _TWO_ W-body Regals in this country, one LS and my GS.

 

To be able to listen to all radio frequencies, I installed a module called a US Radio 0.1MHz frequency shifter/FM Band Expander from Merlin Productions (http://www.merlinproductions.co.uk). They claim on their site that they are the only company making this kind of frequency shifter, and I actually believe them because I tried to find a cheaper one elsewhere and I didn't.

 

It installs in series with the antenna cable, and then there is a power wire which I hooked up to the power from the cigarette lighter with a on/off switch in the circuit. If i flip the switch ON, and tune the radio to, for example 104.3, the frequency "shifts" 0.1Mhz and when the display says 104.3, I actually listen to 104.4. It works as it should, and now I can finally listen to more than one station!

Great update keykey! Thanks for sharing that information.

 

Enjoy your newly expanded selection of stations.
