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

@  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.

Happy thanksgiving Buick Regal old timers and granddaddies.

 

My Audi A6 has a plastic underbelly "pan" which goes underneath the entire engine bay. The name of this thing itself is part of the reason I'm posting since I don't really know the best words.  Help me out.  Some ideas: belly pan, splash guard, underbelly panel, underbelly plate, belly plate, belly pan, undercarriage pan?  What's the best word?  

 

It is a pain to remove just to do an oil change.  Also, if you are doing a job and loose a bolt, it will go there instead of the concrete.  But, even so I need this on my cars and was curious if there's such a thing on my buick regal.  I got my regal used and the first thing to loose would be this thing, so I was just asking if this is available on this car.  I checked ebay to see if there's a part, but didn't see anything.  I want it for a few reasons and would be happy to get an aftermarket one if anyone knows of one.

They're correct, but also be sure the air dam is in place.  It's usually a ~3-4" plastic flap hanging down just ahead of the front cross beam of the engine cradle/crossmember directing air to the radiator to not bypass it.  These have more structure on some newer W-bodies, extending to the bottom of the bumper cover (my GXP's does that).

 

Sidenote:  ~12yrs ago a friend (JohnC from ClubGP) made a panel for under the rear of his GTP to cut-down the "parachute" effect from the rear bumper cover, since it's hollow from the gas tank to the back.  Covering that area where only the spare tire well occupies seemed to be a cool idea.  He ran some high 11.4's at ~119mph like this with some great launches, granted the XPZ setup with his custom head porting probably did 99% of the job, but every bit helps.
