Head to Head


About “Eluminator”

A sudden influx of money from an injury settlement allowed me to secure the car from the previous owner for $500 @ 113,000 miles. Perfect timing. Rare 3.4L V6 and dual exhaust make it an amazing sleeper. (Who expects a Lumina to sprint to 60mph in 7.5 seconds?)

About “Retta”

Purchased 7/26/08 from a friend of mine. Was told it has a head gasket issue but I am unable to find any problems as of right now. Nice car with lots of aftermarket mods. Engine and body have 198k, Trans as 69k. Only minor outside blemishes nothing that can't be fixed with a little work. Interior is spotless!
