Bought a nice Catera with a blown motor for 200 bucks, I wonder if I should put an LS motor in it? scratch

Insure it and drive/push it off a cliff. Your safest bet.

Where are the poll buttons? I vote for a lemons car.

You'll have $300 left for repairs if you don't include any labor. You do work for free, right?

The wife is looking for a replacement for the Lumina if you want to flip it real quick.

I kind of thought the Catera got a bad rap because of the whole marketing theme that made not one iota of sense. I haven't seen them on the road much at all and have seen them in junkyards, but I've heard they had a problem with the timing belt causing the engines to grenade in them...and since the engine was made in Europe (England I think), people usually just junked them due to the cost? I bet you could get one with a blown motor for next to nothing...

I'm wondering what parts in the underpinnings are the same as the GTO...maybe all the brakes and stuff could be swapped over too?

The Catera got a bad rap because it's a total piece of crap! JMHO Mad

It's a crappy OPEL cadet, very little in common with the usual Holden's.

I'm a total GM guy, BUT EFF THAT CAR!

Please pick anything else............

LOL, 2 LS swapped Vibes on a forum, that would be interesting.

Considering the name of the Vibe, I'm wondering if Al has ever accidentally discovered any sort of "toys" inside of one that came into the shop. Shocked
