Well I was happy for a hour and 20 miles

Well you won't believe me but I bought this car ysturday at 230 and at 4 o'clock I called the dealer and told them to come get there car, the pulley that makes all the other pulleys spin(power steering altenator and cooling) came right off the LS1 so I took it back and got my money, I am so disappoint and sadden and a lil discouraged to buy another F-body.


I put 20 miles on it and it was the best 20 miles I have every driven I usaully speed in my grand AM but in the firebird I didn't even want to I am just really disappointed I think I may look at mustangs now and I am not a ford guy.


OH and when it all came off I was doing 45 miles and hour in a two lane road and also hit a school bus(short bus) I E-Braked the **** out of it and went side ways to not hit the bus. I got my check back.

Got it for 8200$ out the door(tax tags) I knew it was to good to be true It had headers no cats and a magnaflow exhaust sounded REALLY good

So, you think that a 10 year old Mustang won't have mechanical problems?

2010 Stock IBM 2SS/RS

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"

So.....obveously it has been moded. And you want to blame it on the LS1 itself?
It could have been put through hell with the previous owner.
Just remember that it was the best 20 miles you have ever driven. That you can blame on the manufacturer.

Sold the 68
Ready for the 2010

Sounds to me since it has been modded that the person previously put on an aftermarket pulley and didn't replace the bolt like they were supposed to, or didn't put it back in at all.
