I dug up my photos of my LeSabre, decided to share with everybody (don't worry, this didn't distract me from the SSEi).

Original engine, shortly after I replaced the trans to make it my own car:

The replacement junkyard engine, after scavenging parts off it for the rebuild:
Image

Old vs. new intake manifold:
Image

First engine rebuild ever:
Image

OEM headers, and a broken flywheel!
Image
Image

Some L67 goodness:

Completely unrelated, but it's a kitty in a bowl!

Great car! I bet it was quicker than an SSEi. Being lighter that is...

I bet a lot of people were in aw if that thing blew their doors off. Especially the ricers :twisted:

I can say firsthand it was just as fast as a slightly modded 01 SSEi. If it were up against a stock SSEi it wouldve been faster. ;)

Without going into details, it did cause a lot of red faces; and I have to wonder what some of the 'girlfriends' in the passenger seats were saying.

At least with the bonneville, I'm starting with the body work!

Is that a stock spoiler on the Lesabre? It looks and fits the car real nice, even better than the SSE spoiler.

Hehe... That spoiler is the stock one from my 85 Trans Am. It was a spur of the moment mod I thought of at the meet I hosted in January. :)

It looks good. I've been wanting to do a LeSanre t-type or LeSanre GN, and these pictures only make the desire worse.
