That seems to be a common issue with the GTO, G8, etc. If that's all the wears out though, that's pretty good. I hope my SS can last a really long time, I don't know what could replace it anyway. I think it might be the first car I've ever had that I'm not thinking about replacing/upgrading. I bought a cheap 04 Impala to drive a couple days a week to help keep some mileage off the SS so it'll last longer but I just love driving the SS so much that the Impala is just parked at work and I drive it to lunch every day.
no pics but i have a 95 buick regal with 125k miles i drive as a work/winter beater at times. i paid $700 for it over 3 years ago and it still runs amazing. It was owned by a handicapped lady and owned in Georgia before i bought it off a well trusted mechanic friend. I must say i love this car!
thread revival, shameless GMT 800 plug
-05 LQ9/65e, 70k. 3.42s from the factory (which I thought was uncommon for a Z71 4x4). Also no stabilitrak, which I thought was standard beginning in 05 but whatever. love those 3.42s on the highway tho
-mostly stock minus radio (sony xav 5000 iiirc) and a 2k stall. No exhaust mods, nothing. Quiet! I'm trying not to tinker on the DD
