Just made the DP on my 2.3 Head and Cams..and wow....

I got a full tour all over this guys business. www.tiredironsaab.repair.bz

I think i want to become the hunchbacked troll of this place and live in the upstairs attic. We are talking Sonnet body parts, a wall with doors stacked everyplace. I found the grill you are looking for ced (gm900) I'm not sure if its going to be any huge discount, like the $15 on ebay.

I saw the 300hp Iceracer, and the new dirtracer he is building. plus tons of parts cars.

Well $400 plus tax for my head and cams, He said he usually gets about half the price of a new grill for a nice grill. He showed me a car he bought good just for parts. I would say resonable, and he has some good stuff. I saw a parts 900T with the louvered rack, He had 5 in the attic

If you need something. He has it. Some stuff he wont sell, but then again, you never know. Had a small shed with about a dozen newer engines in it. Rows of cars to be fixed or parted. Really good labor rate. Quoted me about half the dealerships cost to pop the new head in. Even had an engine built by Enders Racing Engines (place I bought my GN) wich is where I think I'm having my head ported and polished. Lemme find the pics to the ice racing.

His is the red and yellow classic 900. He cranked her up for me..sounded mean! He also owns a 99 with a 16V turbo in it. You folks may see this car in May. For more info on that car, I think it was in a Nov issue of European car back in 95 or 96.

Tweek. Thanks for the find.

How much was he selling the GM900 grill for? Also does he have the plastic engine cover?

Thanks alot for keeping an eye out.

He said he would have to find the cover...I'm sure he has it. Like I said, he wanted half new for a good one..would any one do? like something not beat up, but not brand new looking?
