My buddies car that is. He has a 95 buick regal with a 3800 engine and a 4t60-e tranny in it. He lost 3rd gear in the tranny and drove it at 70 mph unitl it broke a rod in the motor, then he called me. I found a junkyard motor with 80,000 miles on it and put gaskets in it. Then with the tranny I rebuilt it with the help of my dad. It is the first automatic I have ever been into, except for a filter change. I did most of the work with dad supervising, and it works better that a brand new one! And no oil leaks to boot! I'm so pumped right now! WoooooooHoooooo!

1970 coupe restored with the help of my dad. 306 with 600 holley, Weiand Stealth intake, headers, Comp cam, harland sharp roller rockers, kb pistons, 11:1 compression ratio, pertonix ignitor 2 with matched coil, lakewood bellhousing, 4-speed toploader, and 2.79 open 8" rear. Soon to be 9" 3.50 trac-lok
