  1. the rear end looks unfinished to me.
  2. Remote hunting...

    battery dead or is it broke? you could ebay one but i dont know if the user can manually set the radio frequency to match you car. so it might be dealer part. or just use the keys... $70 is step for a stupid fob. that costs $1 MAX to make. that remote is awesome though.

    For a fact I know the 2 models you listed will not engage the the engine n neutral at all or ever. I tested the 200 4r yesterday on the freeway and I owned a car with the 700 and never noticed it. Since, while driving i like to put my cars in neutral and rev them, its cheap entertainment. What happened in your case since the engine was overheating was a rare phenomenon called dieseling. very common in older gm's with electrical issues. old neighbor had a 83 caprice that would do it. He would shut of the car and get out and the engine would continue to run in a misfire state for a good 2-3 minutes. However, if the car is carbureted and its Hot then gas can continue to flow freely and the engine is so hot combustion occurs with out spark hence the name dieseling. This can occur in any make of car, even carbureted lawn equipment. Im willing to bet this is what happened, but i have been wrong before.
  4. that's a huge safety issue all cars i think have to be able to disengage from drive to neutral with no other action then to move lever. every automatic i ever drove has been like that.

    yes Michigan no fault insurance is mandatory. but there is a high percentage that don't have it. simple becasue the fine of not having it is cheap compared to the actually cost. For PLPD insurance on a 90 caprice is $300 every 6 months. so $600 a year to drive a beat up car and new cars range from $900-$2400 a year to have full coverage on.

    if you dont live in Detroit its hard to understand, but police have alot of other pressing issues. like murders? the average investigation time fore a Detroit murder case is 2 shifts. If there is no leads then they go on to a new case. also Detroit cops are subject to high attack rates for simple traffic stops. So when a Det cop wants to pull some one over there's a high chance he will get shot at. also I dont think i heard of anyone gett a ticket from Detroit pd in a long time. I-94 in Detroit is 55mph but if your not doing 90-95 in the left lane then you will probably get rammed off the road. Last week I was doing 98-100 mph on 94 and was passed by a 90's Lincoln sedan. This isn't news.
  8. I never hated automatics. they make traffic bearable. whens the last time you commuted in a corvette in a 1.5 hour commute in thick 10 mph traffic. It sucks!. my left leg get destroyed. but I still dont trust used car dealerships
  9. Some cheap oil....

    hmmm.. the vibe is up on miles. I still love Royal purple but its too expensive but I can get 6-7000 miles on a change in the caprice where conventional is exactly 3k and Mobil 1 gets sludge and thick at 4k. I was surprised with Valvoline platinum? synthetic. good stuff that's reasonable priced.
  10. Attn: longtime C&G members

    since he name is brought up i think i would like to share something. awhile back he posted about applying for a temp job at the Livonia Cadillac engine assembly plant. and then reported "he didn't get it," Actually No one got the temp jobs becasue they either failed preliminary background checks (active criminals, invalid identification, probation) or failed drug test. i think i remember 30 people applied and only 2 passed the drug test but failed background checks. I don't know which category he fell into but, I knew a person working there that was doing training. Just thought you would like to know.

  12. "dumb me"

    I remember in my blazer I did that. I went to pop the the hood while it was on ramps and it was a stick I popped the parking brake up and it rolled of the ramps down across the street and up the curb and stopped in the lawn across the street. I couldn't stop laughing at my self.
  13. This just burns my ass

    +1 Exactly how i feel.
