*sigh*

I just signed over the title for my 1994 Cutlass Supreme convertible to my brother. *sniffles* I know he'll take great care of it.

*mourns* :D

If I had a 1969 MM Cadillac Hearse I'd never drive anything else. :D

wikipedia {snorts}

Who wrote that article- a 9-yr old??

>>"Engineers like to stick with what they know. Lots of suspension engineers are familiar with using coil springs. They could experiment with leaves if they wanted or they could stick with coils and get the job done. See the point about undertaking a research project."<<

All early modlels of W-bodys had leafs in them.. was cool!

Yep- the Mach 5 is still on her first one, the factory spring. :yes: It does make it tricky to raise/lower the rear suspension, tho.
