.. LOL! I stumbled onto more hot-under-the-collar discussions like this today... like NO '86 Pontiac GP 2+2 aeros had T-Tops or sun roofs because if you drive with the tops out, 'the big bubble back window blows out...'

.. Some Buick GNs may or may not have been available with turbos or V6s...

.. 2+2's were NO option cars... they came loaded only one way... except some had options... so we seldom say 'never'... even Sean Connery learned that... smile

.. I've worked at car factories and have friends at them... sometimes when they order a car they go down the line with it and add every option in the book and even some options not available because their buddies know what wiring harnesses to pull in to add those options... and then the car arrives at the dealership for them to pick up as a 'stripper' with NO options showing on the monroney... smile

I went to a pick and pull this past saturday. They had at least 4 80s blazers. Couldnt check the rears though because of all the snow, but when the snow melts, its game time. I hope i dont have the same bad luck you did.


85SS 350v8, 200-4r, bodywork and H4 upgrade coming soon

.. That GN window sticker posted above reminded me that GNX was an $11,000 option over a GN !!! And got you something like 33 more HP... and heavier wheels IIRC...

.. 'High Performance' cars like MonteSS's are bought by young guys/teenagers with lots of free time on their hands and adventurous spirits and also traveling salespeople who can sometimes put 200,000 miles on in 3-5 years... meaning rearends, engines, and trannies can be changed several times by now in a 1980's Monte... and as mentioned, open rears are cheaper replacements...

.. A Pick-a-Part just opened or is trying to get permission to open a few blocks from here... I'll have to go in and check out their S-10's, Montes, 442's, and GNs before they get too knowledgable about what they're selling... along with several of the other yards...
