Yo @[U]NASSTY[/U], I see a GNX there. I past on a new one the dealer couldn't get rid of in Orlando in late 87 early 88, couldn't justify buying one for sticker price no markup ($29K), when my 86 GN was going just as fast for $300 worth of my DYI mods at Speedworld in Orlando. I had 4 at one time when I was Big into them and a member of the Turbo Buick Club of Atlanta, only have 2 now the High optioned 86 I ordered, with 272K miles, and an 87 I picked up in 96 with 11.5K, now with 15K miles all original keeper. It the 86 was the most fun and awh inspiring car I ever had. Now don't get mad at me but I use to like going to the drag strip after work in my shirt and tie (I was an Aerospace engineer at the time) and pull up to the burnout box in said shirt and tie with the windows closed and a/c on (we're talking Orlando FL) all stock engine minus the Cat, a homemade air intake and a few select Chips and wait for the Mustang guys to push their loud cars to the burnout box all greasy and dirty and walk away from them only to have them come by after and want to know where I was hiding the Nitrous!!!! I know you all being Ford guys think I'm an Asshole for doing that, but at the time I was a young 30's something and did it cause I Could... I drove it for 13 years straight as my DD, it was a very reliable vehicle and never left me stranded except when the Timing chain cam gear wore out (shity nylon coated aluminum cam gear) on my way home from the Turbo Buick Gathering in Bowling Green KY in 96, that was the first and only time I had to open the engine at 232K miles and alls I had to do was open the front cover, clean the plastic pieces out of the oil pan, put on the new chain and gears and off I went for another 3 years and 40K miles till I retired it.

I wish it was a real GNX. That was an 85 GN (hot air turbo) that someone made a GNX clone. I picked it up because I had a wrecked 87 and I needed something to drop the 87 engine and tranny into. It sure was pretty, but when I decided to thin out the fleet I was too attached to NASSTY to let her go. NASSTY currently has 93K miles. I haven't taken it to the track in forever but it ran low 11's on drag radials w/ bigger turbo, bigger intercooler, bigger injectors, hotwired walbro fuel pump, alky injection, 3" downpipe and built tranny running 26 psi of boost.

I love the GN and Monte body style. My college roommate (09-11) had an 85 Monte SS. Maroon with the red and orange stripes. We'd cruise the streets of Kansas City, getting appreciative looks from all the homies. Once moving, the lil 305 wasnt too bad. It was just getting it to 20 mph that it was a dogg

Well, I’ll start with the oldest and go newer. Nothing new, lol. Don’t judge me for the Corvettes, one was inherited, one was practically free.
1969 F-250 Camper Special 465cid FE/C6, purchased 2006.
1982 Fox Mustang Coupe EFI 302/AOD, grandparents bought new.
1987 Corvette Coupe L98/700R4, bought not running 2 years ago for $1200, only had bad MAF.
1988 Bronco 351W/AOD, purchased 2003 when I was 17.
1994 Bronco 351W/E4OD, purchased 2009.
1996 Corvette ‘Vert LT1/4L80, wife inherited 2014.
1997 Thunderbird 4.6 SOHC/4R70W, purchased 2018 for $1300 with 101k miles.
1998 F150 5.4/4R100, wife’s dad bought new.

And I’m going to look at a 1997 Mark VIII 4.6 DOHC/4R70W on Sunday.

The TBird and 94 Bronco share DD duties and wife’s DD is the F150, occasionally one of the Vettes.
The Fox is the only one not in the pic.

Do it! Swap a T3650 in and let er eat! The 4.6 DOHC is such an underappreciated engine. Swap in the 03-04 mach1 heads and intake. They are the best. 305+hp out of 281 cubes at 6800 rpm!!!!

Wow....lots of super sweet rides! We need more pics! We need the backstory of the “RIP-wrecked” cars!

Oh, the GN d00d in Orlando...I was in Ft Lauderdale in a Fox body GT circa 89-90. Got smoked by a GN. Was that you? LOL- I learned to respect them!

Now, I own a G Body.!!
Check out the RideTech front sway bar I installed. Need to do the rear.

I hear ya, and there are plenty of Aviators in the jyard. The car’s next to nothing in price and if we hate the Lincoln, the engine’s gonna go in my TBird. Also wanna do the 5.4 DOHC from navigator into our F150.

Many know the story of my BigBlue 94... but lots of newbs here now too so here goes. Ol blue was my first vehicle. Got it in 2003, as I graduated from 8th grade. Bone stock with 72k miles.

About a year later, I had a light bar and brush guard.



Eventually it was lifted 6 inches and stuffed with 37s. That's how you saw it in my other post. It was parked in our shop, preparing to get all new fenders and rear quarters in 2015.

The garage it was parked in burned down around it, and a 96 crew cab powerstroke f350. The bronco and my dads superduty were in the hot zone, at over 2000°. The 96 fared better, but still scrapped. Liability on it, so it went into a dumpster.

Graphic Warning: The following may cause vomiting and cries of agony!! Lol



My nice shiney edelbrock intake completely melted...
