Default It'* Like meeting an Old Pal

I drove a 92 SE from 94 to just this past May when my mechanic infomed me I needed to spend a chunk of change on needed repairs. So I went out and bought an ssei that hase every bell and whistle GM offers on this car (really, I did the research). Been driving it since may and I made the mistake of letting my wife drive it (she drives a 94 Honda Accord coupe). Well as you can imagine, all of the sudden, she wants a new car. In the past, whenever she got the new car itch, I would get her Honda detailed to give it the new car look. Even though I did this with somewhat jokingly, it always seemed to work. This time it didn't ... she was serious. Not wanting to have to go through the process of auto shopping and forking out big bucks, I gave her my new bonnie, spend 2 grand and got my 92 repaired. I am so glad I made this decision. It is so much more comfortable than the 2002. A year before it stopped running I had the tranny rebuilt and about 6 months, I had the driver'* seat re-upolstered. I am getting used to not having all the bells and whistles as quickly as I got used to them. My wife thinks I am nuts to be so excited driving my old pal again.

I think I'm going to install a new radio/cd player and speaker and a remote starter.

Sounds good. What type of remote start you thinking about?

Not sure. I'm not terribly particular. Any suggestions. I may be limited to the kinds the shops carry and install.

it might be a little more installation because of the passkey stuff, assuming that car has that. There are a lot of options out there it all depends your price range and what you want.
