No sadly it doesn't have the HUD...I am looking to get a hold of one later from Ed Morad. I did paint the engine cover with that krylon fusion stuff for plastic.The cover only stays on for the winter months to help warm up faster.

as far as parkaveperfromance.com goes it would be easier to have...but I fear I would get yelled at from some old folks in their park aves for trying to race and mod it.

I had tons of people make fun of me until 2 nights ago my friend was with me in the car. We were going to his house and I pulled up next to a hemi 300...I took him off the line and held him with about 1/2 a length till about 75 then he started pullin on me slightly. It was fun! long straight country roads.

Nice.

HUD's not everything. Rivs don't have it, and I'm ok with that.

I own a 99 Riv, and Regal GS with the kick ass S/C 3800 Series II. I also have a Park Avenue but in the name of getting a deal I bought a non-ULTRA version. It was the best I could do at the time but now I think of it as a BIG mistake. At least it is my wifes car. I have even looked at trading for a Metallic Red ULTRA with OnStar, heated seats and HUD.

I painted my cover the same color as the body and then hand lettered the letters in silver.

Ah well you got two quick cars, just enjoy the fuel savings from the PA... 87 octane and no S/C will make it the nice trip car. My mom had a '98 PA and it's what got me looking for the RIv in the first place...

I have a 12" monitor. No worries, Bruce. I fixed them.

So... This is a "Park Avenue by Buick?" I always called them Buick Park Avenues.

Yeah a little confusing with the interior badges I forgot they where even there! I also got rid of the wallyworld steering wheel cover...It was to much for me. I wanted to put the 3.4 pulley on today but I'm not sure if i should with the mods I have. I think I'm running a hair lean with 34.5mpg highway...cruise control set at 72.

I got the mileage with a 3.8 inch pulley and obviously some exhaust mods. A good tune up...like plugs, wires, fuel filter and new o2 sensor helped alot plus the downpipe....palermocorey90 your riv looks nice!

I'm waiting for a friend of mine to get back to me...with a price for a cam install I'm thinkin intense's S1X.

Hmm... are you gonna get headers before the cam install? they say that a cam isnt as good without one , but then again turbo guys makes some amazing power with the plog.
