OK, so I signed up to this forum a while back and went directly into posting mode. I realized, I probably made an "oops" in proper forum etiquette and never posted a "new member" greetings posting.

Before I go on about myself, I am not an Impala owner (but like much of GM, I like the car). I am a fan of GM cars and I stumbled upon this site looking for info about modding the 3800 v6 in my Monte. I found that this forum had more then just Impala owners and thought it looks like there's a wealth of good info here and frequent posting.

Anycase, blah, blah, blah, no about me....
I live in the Cleveland Ohio area. I am a computer tech by trade and to be honest, I never really had any interest in cars until I was 16/17 years old (I was always into computers and I am still very much into computers).

I enjoy Sci-FI (like a few of the Star Trek series, Fringe and FlashForward). I also enjoy action shows like Burn Notice and Leverage. And comedy shows like That 70’s Show (no longer airing), Big Bang Theory and how mess of other shows. Favorite movies are the original Ghostbusters and the animated Transformers The Movie from 1986.

As for cars..
My first love when it comes to cars, my first love is the 3rd gen f-bodies (the second car I ever owned was an ’84 Z28 Camaro, I still have it but since 2003 it has been in the mode of “I want to restore it”, so it’s been in pieces since. I got LOTS of info about my Camaro on my web site http://crzyz28.sytes.net (I started that site around 1999 to learn how to build web sites and made the focus my Camaro).

It was about five years ago, I began really growing an interest in the 80’s Monte Carlos (just looked at them and thought “you know, these cars look really sweet”). I’ve been driving a ’94 Grand Am as my daily driver (today it is pushing 200K miles). In 2008, I thought it might be wise to find another car to consider a “daily driver” and I really had an interest in the 6th gen Montes. That’s when I landed on my 2004 Montes Carlo SS. It was a little more then my target price BUT it was also less miles and a new car then my original target. More about my Monte can be found here: http://crzyz28.sytes.net/04monte.html

Since my ’94 Grand Am still runs, I have parked my Monte every winter (since 2008). I love my Monte so much now that I am DREADING when it has to go to all year drive.

Anycase, perhaps a bit long but, that’s me.

Admittedly, when I was shopping for a car to replace my Grand Am, I wanted the 3800 v6. If I was going to go 4 door, I had a liking for the Impala (but the Monte called to me more) Very Happy

Thanks everyone. As I said, I see a wealth of information from people on this forum regarding the 3800 v6.

And I also notice it seems to have a bunch of Monte Carlo owners as members (which, I do find funny, but hey, it's all good, I'm one of the Monte Carlo party crashers)....

This site is just a wealth of knowledge on the 3800 platform... and it's good knowledge.

Also, when people get off topic it just gets too hilarious and you gotta come back Smile
