I will keep you in mind when Im ready to sell mine. I am looking for a GXP. I have a fully loaded 99 SSEi with the air ride suspension. I absolutely love the car and would only replace it with a GXP.

yes there is a very funny/messed up story behind it. Car was my childhood friends car, my mom bought it. it sat in her garage for a couple years. she was drunk one night and said she would give it to me, and i recorded that statement on my phone. so i freshened it up.

3 or 4 in the morning im heading to a friends to meet up with my girlfriend and the drivers front wheel just breaks off out of no where. turning my car into a spark throwing tripod! when my rim broke off the brake rotor landed on the inside of my 18" Limited rim, cracking it and shattering my fender. then i was drunk one night and thought my car was a highspeed drifter, so i took a sharp neighborhood curve entirely to fast and went threw someladies front yard. taking out her mailbox, trash dumpster and slapping a big *** oak tree with the rear fender, which dented it pretty bad. THEN i accidently overdosed on drugs and was messed up for about 4 months. i could barely talk, couldnt read and stumbled all over the place. but i thought i could drive. needless to say it went threw alot of pain during that time. lots of mailboxes, ditches, and i drove it like i stole it. I also got my first DUI in that car, crashed into a sign on my own little sidestreet and fled the scene. then ran on foot.

I in no way condone this kind of activity. I am a good kid, just went threw alot of hard times. i have been clean and sober for 8 monthes. and am happier than i have ever been. Thank you god.

Rule of thumb: When something is kind of destroyed, there'* usually a funny story involved.

Usually. Wasn't funny this time, though I'm glad to hear that you're clean now. I know someone who was in that same boat and is also clean — it'* a lot harder to clean up than it sounds.
