I posted it yesterday....sigh!! LOL, no I just for some reason loved this review, due to it being such a rare tranny combo, I will see if I can find that calais road race report, it was on the last disc i extracted!!Haha bad day man! I LOVE this car! I'd love to find one someday. It's so hard to find many of these older GM's in good shape... forget finding one with a 5-speed! I think that it's great how daring GM was with the styling... quite sharp for the day!
Without exaggerating, I think that that is a very attractive car. It has excellent proportions for a large FWD coupe. I love the silhouette. Long, low, and wide. GM really had something with this car.
my folks bought a new 92 Olds Cutlas International w/ same motor, it was a oil leaker!Very intriguing vehicle. I had always wondered why they had to ruin the package with such hideous wheels. That Twin Cam was certainly pumping out quite a bit of power for those years. GM really put out some overlooked things. With the Z34's 3.4 to the Beretta GTU 2.3 HO, they were ahead of the game in the late 80's and early 90's, but some how, just let go of a good thing (typical GM).
That was simply the Euro 3.1I liked the gray one the host was next to.
Visit my youtube page, as I now have 92 vids up for you guys! I did this mainly to share w/ GMI people, but am getting great response from outside aswell!!I like these old Motorweek videos.
Thanks for putting them up. I just watched 5 more (Blazer, NSX, Firebird, Land Cruiser and VR4).Visit my youtube page, as I now have 92 vids up for you guys! I did this mainly to share w/ GMI people, but am getting great response from outside aswell!!
Yeah, but it looked a lot nicer than the overly done red Z34. It's kind of like the Chevy Celebrity. The celebrity looked great in gray and black (or even in white) but the VR model looked ridiculous. I wouldn't get a Lumina with a 5 speed unless I wanted to work out while driving.That was simply the Euro 3.1
I agree. Also they have to be a pain in the ass to work on.Quarter in 16.1 sec? A Reatta, which I'm pretty sure is roughly the same weight, did that with a pushrod 3800, with 165 hp, not 200+, and with a 4 speed auto
I've always thought the 3.4L Twin Dual Cam was a waste
Not horrible considering output was rated at 210 i believe.I agree. Also they have to be a pain in the ass to work on.
When I was going to the tech college two guys had this engine, one in a lumina and the other in a cutlass. We dyno'd the cutlass it put ~190hp down to the ground.
You certainly don't see them often. Why you get rid of yours?I actually had one of these back in the day. I had a hard time finding one. Most of the dealers kept telling me there was no such thing as a 5-speed Lumina. Finally found a dealer that had one; black w/ gray interior. It was a fun car to drive. Definitely unique.
