The Omega in my imho is a much underated car and it even has its 'knockers' on this forum....but that's their problem :( It lends itself to modifications from  mild to wild and that's what I like about the car and it's really only about how far your personal finances will permit you to go down that route.So enjoy the car and ignore the negative comments (if any) and by the way welcome to the forum.......enjoy :y :y

Say no more......the young fellas that work for my boy always pay me compliments about my cars especially as two of them are ex cop cars,the thing with the bigger engined Omegas is that they make great 'street sleepers'and it gives me a buzz when it comes to a drag race from the lights with some drivers who think they're driving something that can do the job and quite frankly it turns out usually to be a turd ;D Think I must be  the oldest boy racer in town :-X
