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

@  WildGS : (30 April 2021 - 07:59 PM)

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

@  dezldave961 : (28 April 2021 - 11:54 PM)

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.

@  dezldave961 : (26 April 2021 - 11:55 PM)

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

@  dezldave961 : (24 April 2021 - 02:22 PM)

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.

     Just wanted to say hello Im a new member from Reading, PA. I just bought a sweet mint shape Silver 2003 Buick Regal GS for $1800 with aftermarket speed dents in it and light weight rusted blownout factory exhaust and the Engines just started to get broken in with 130K on it. All jokes aside it may not be the nicest one out there but I'm no stranger to the 3.8L Supercharged engines and have owned a 2002 Grand Prix GTP that I was hit by a drunk driver in and also a 2005 Impala SS that I had for a while before selling to my girlfriends mom who owned a 63 Corvette Stingray when it was new back in her time. 

     Anyway so as previously stated I've owned two of the L67 engine cars and always wanted the Regal GS as a daily driver and found one for the right affordable price. I could of spent a little more and got something a little nicer but I'm more into building and driving hotrods from the 50's anyway but needed a newer car for a little over a hour commute to work and back everyday and with owning my own garage that I use to do metal work on the side in I'm not afraid to tear into the Regal GS and fix it. I plan on trying to keep up with the forum and share pictures of my progress on bringing my car back to a nicer shape of its self that it once was.

Thank you Alan. Id also like to add that I dont care for online forums drama, shit talkers, pretenders, trolls, or any b.s. because I dont have time for that or trying to make myself look good online like I see on other forums "H.A.M.B. ....nuff said" because im to busy fixing real problems in my garage or out on the road crusin' somewhere. So the limited amount of time I have to be on the computer looking for problem solving info or help I dont need to or care to see or read drama or negative comments. Also Im better with a Welder and Toolbox then a computer or grammar/spelling so you'll have to excuse me on that end.

Check the section called "Flagship Cars." Some guys start a thread there to post pics and document their build. Generally it is not a section for discussion and questions. Other guys will document their build in the "Almost Anything Goes" section. More discussion there.

Thanks again for the help on the Blog question. I believe Ill start my blog in the "Almost Anything Goes" section because sadly my car looks more like its been beaten then on the nice Flagship end of the spectrum.
