Hey guys, here are a few pictures of my pro touring 84 Regal.
It was originaly a rotted, green Limited model, with a half vinyl roof.Yuck! It sported a luxurious faded SAGE green velour interior, with bench seat and column shift. It was a 305 engine and 3 speed auto. Now it sports a EFI small block, and 5 speed T5 manual trans.
The suspension has all energy suspension bushings,the springs are Eibach rears, and cut suspension techniques Impala SS front coils.
The sway bars are from a Monte Carlo SS.The front brakes are SSBC twin piston calipers, with slotted rotors and braided flex lines. The rear are aluminum drum with braided flex line. The rear frame is notched, to fit 17x11 Corvette Grand Sport wheels.The fronts are 17x9.5s. Tires are 315 35 17 rear and 255 40 17 front.
HOPE YOU LIKE..............

Nice ride..well done in the stance area.

Nice to see another Buick Regal done right.

BTW how did you fit that wheel and tire combo, and whats their backspacing?

I don't like it.... I LOVE IT!

Great color choice, not over done, manual trans--->nice!

One question though, why not 275/40/17s? I never understood 245s or 255s on 9.5" rims.

Hey guys, thanks for all the positve comments. Im glad that people can appreciate a car built on a budget, as well as the big dollar cars.
Whats next? ...Id like to grab a set of the Sphoon anti-sway bars ,and some seats with some real support...
P.S 275s on the front rub, all over the place.....and 255's on the front make the rears look even WIDER!

i was wondering if you shaved your drip rails? if you did do you have any close pictures of them that you could put up?

thanks Chris

looks good.
must have been fun tracking down all that blacked out trim. is that a one piece front spoiler? i've been thinking about getting one, but haven't seen a good pic of one "in the wild"...
i want mine to sit almost that low- maybe an inch higher would be low enough but still usable on crappy MN roads.

I really like this look. Based on your description, it has really come a long way. At which aftermarket dealer did you find the GNX fender vents? Are they holding up well now that they have had some time in the sun? I am interested in adding these to my '86 GN drag car.
