Default Bye bye body style...

I guess it'* official. After getting the dash together... and all the rewiring of my extra electrical hookups at Derek'* I was hungry. Smellbird had gotten the TPS back on the car, but we were still having problems tuning it, so we got it a lil better then before and left.

On the way to wendy'* i saw a 2005 SLE at Heintz Pontiac.... It had the 5 spoke bent chrome wheels, and a GXP styled body....

No more SSE/i body i guess.

That body.wheel combo was nice btw... I'll snap some pix tomorrow if possible.

Actually, i've seen a good dozen of these. I thought they were debaged GXPs but then saw the single tailpipe and was like WTF! So, that explains it. They were just 2005 SLEs.

Funny, I've seen 3 of these, but have yet to see a GXP in person.

So would an 04 GXP be considered limited production? I'm gonna be at Heintz in Mantkato on tuesday to drop some parts off, might have to take a peek at that.
