In a vain attempt to blow the motor from very hard driving (so I have an excuse to shove an LS1 in it) I take it to redline each and every time I take it out of the garage. I have also flogged the car in every way at the track for the last four years ... redlining it to the point of the rev limiter shutting down cylinders (not on purpose, just not being observant) and spinning it out on and off track in dry weather and deep mud and rain (once again, not on purpose, but hey, when you don't learn that lifting off the throttle at speed in a corner is a bad thing, your car spins and spins!)

The motor and tranny are just amazingly resilient. I sure wish the same could be said for the crappy plastic parts all over the car and the various bushings in the mounts and suspension parts.

New motor, transmission, suspension, and on and on and on it goes...
