i WISH WE COULD HAVE HAD A rwd 3800 POWERED vehicle

in the USA with a 5-speed manual.

Well there was the Camaro & Firebird but it would have been

awsome to have a 1987 Grand Prix or Regal with the 3.8 and

5-on-the-floor.

Welcome Sir!

They offered manuals in Grand Prix and Cutlass Supremes in 1988-1990, but they were not popular.

98-R:

Yes I know but the 88-90 cars lacked two crucial things:

-RWD

-BOF

Very cool! And it's got the CV8-R wheels!

I love those wheels.

As for the market here, yes I think they would do well.

But I'm a bit biased. :AH-HA_wink:

Y'know...if the Ute ever comes to the US, I'd have a hard time chosing between Ignition, Redhot, and Morpheus. I really do like that purple.

Very nice ride, sir.

Welcome Sir!

They offered manuals in Grand Prix and Cutlass Supremes in 1988-1990, but they were not popular.

Manuals were offered in all W-bodies except the Regal. Unfortunately for our DOHC hating friend here, all the cars that could come with manuals either had the Quad4, 3.4 DOHC, or the 3.1 and 2.8 liter pushrod V6s. The pushrod V6es, while decent engines were boat anchors in cars this heavy. They were much more suited to the lighter J-bodies and A-bodies.

Where was never a 3800 powered W-body with a manual transmission.
