So today officially is the first day of spring, which means the cruel wrath of winter is over and flowers are blooming and the birds are chirping... No. Since the weather is Bipolar in the northeast of the United States, upstate New York especially, we have snow to celebrate spring this year. My mom is letting me borrow her car until winter finally goes away. Her car is a 2003 Buick Century with the 3.8 liter V6. It's got tons of room, comfort, and packs a punch. Not something one would expect from a granny car but she does the job. Her name is Esther and she's been a good car for our family since 2009.

I believe its a 6000 lbs boat converted into a car.. Maybe a never aired Top Gear special?

I think the Triumph is a better option then this :-D

It just needs a GTP supercharger and springs. And you need a granny wig. Then you can make the Hondurrs at the stoplight piss themselves.

Don't be hating on the Granny Swagg! :smt005 the boat is comfy as Hell, I'll miss the comfort when I drive the Spitfire again. Also, don't remember if I posted it on here but it is my Mom's car, and this thread is going exactly where I thought it would, which is fine by me :lol:

This whole thread should go in the best of SLi

I'm trying to get my mom to buy a Forester, my father thinks car mods are a waste if money. Hence why he wants me to get a Focus lol. Who knows, maybe Esther will get a supercharger? :twisted:

Or a body kit :lol:

NO! As I stated previously, the visual modifications need to be to the driver. It's a granny car. Look like a granny. Channel the little old lady from Pasadena!

If you mod this car, I will find you.

You'll start finding scorpions in your shoes. Flip down the visor in the buick, and a rattlesnake will fall out. Open the glovebox, there's a pissed off badger. Convince your girl to get freaky in the back seat? Nope, motherfucking grizzly bear. Grocery run? More like trunk full of Australia's finest man-sized spiders.

My wrath will be swift and unending. The only safe path for you is the path that leads to a BK.

"Oh by the way, mom... I kiiiinda sorta put a supercharged 3800 in your buick. Also, don't open the trunk."

I can fit like 6 bodies in the trunk of the Buick, far more than the 1 and half in the Spitfire. Not like I've ever done that...

Bump-date? The Buick got the intake manifold gasket problem fixed, along with a tune up and oil change. That was back in April or May lol, I haven't driven the car since I put the Spitfire on the road. Actually, I lied. I drove it to Rochester for Dayglow/Life In Color concert in mid April and managed to squeeze 8 people in hahahaha there's still some paint from that concert in the car LOL.

This semester my sister is borrowing the Buick for college, so Esther will be spending fall in southern PA this year.
