Unhappy XTANT12 RETIRING

Well all, it has been a good run. After getting the car checked out the verdict is I have to replace the rockers and part of my floor is bent upward from being lifted on a lift. The body work alone I can't afford. I have scheduled to have the motor+trans+ radiator pulled and the shell will be junked. It saddens me but the time has come to move on. I like to think of it like this, I did the fast car game and have nothing to be ashamed of. Now it is time for me to move on, I think I want to get into a luxury car next. I want something nice and that is 4 door. I really like the 2015 Genesis family cars. Well, if you guys know anyone who would be looking for a built motor and trans or an oversized radiator do send them my way. I will still poke around here from time to time, but it wont be the same....

Does the bent floor effect drivability of the car? I would continue driving it. If ZZP lifted it incorrectly hope they have insurance...

Throw an exhaust on the Genesis and you're back in the modded car game.

No reason not to visit because you don't have a hot rod.

Sorry to hear about the car

Enjoy your retirement, I know I have. Did like 4 mods to have a faster car for much less money.

I miss the ease of 400whp and I've always loved GTP's, they're such simple cars, but everything else sucks. Rust bucket pieces of shit. HOWEVER, if one day I find a 4dr Special Edition in white, rust free and not a stupid price, I'd have a hard to resisting.

4t65ehd can eat a bag of dicks. Get rid of it and don't look back. That is a shitty situation, but move onto a better platform and try not to stress too much.

Buy a newer v8 car they all pretty much come with that stock now, it amazes me that you can buy a new car and run 11’s with it, go back 4 years and my mustang took some work to hit an 11 mostly just a converter, but it was fairly expensive and a full day job to swap cold air intake exhaust and a tire bam 11’s

No, they said I dropped it off like that. Last email said that my door pins were bent ( If I read correctly ) and that was what caused it. It seems to be bouncing around with what caused it and how it is my fault.
