Default Very Proud 92 SSEi Driver

Well as many know, my car was not taken care of before i got it. So it was really ragged out when i got it and i have spent alot of time just trying to get it looking back nice. Well there are also some driveability issues also(needs new front struts, have slow air leaks in 3 rims, needs new endlinks, supercharger coupler, and the list does go on). Well my PCM is on its way back from Ohio right now for my Grand Prix so i have been driving the SSEi. Well i had plans already made to help a buddy about 2 hours away with his job one day so i had to just go in the SSEi. I was kinda worried whether or not it would make the 113 mile trek but it made it there, all around the area, and home with no problems at all. Its funny, even ragged out, it still rode amazingly well and comfortably all the way there, and still got complimented from everyone there on how it was so "electronically advanced for its age" and called the batmobile at night!! It made me feel more secure on driving it outside of town, but i do have to start working on those issues at hand.

Sorry for the long post, just had to share, am very proud of my 92 SSEi at this moment!

You know, I have a 92 SE and i feel the same way, I have been driving it to wokr almost every day (about 50 miles) for the last 2 weeks and no problems at all, other than everything it already had wrong (the list id huge, this car is almost junk yard material) but I agree proud of her at the moment........

Missing a trim panel, dings all down the pass. side, rock chips all over it, inside is pretty much shot, but she still runs and drives like a dream.

Wish I could add my 2 cents. I am fortunate to have purchased my 98 from my mother. My father took great care of it. It looks and drives great. The trick is to baby it. As much as you want to race it, you gotta resist...I avoid driving behind big vehicle, i.e. dump trucks.

I'm very glad the car made it safely for Jeff! He wasn't alone though. He forgot to mention his mascot, Henry. Henry is a mouse that Jeff can't seem to kill. He has set the trap many times and the mouse takes the peanut butter off but never activates the trap. I even set it for him and the stupid mouse (I should say smart mouse) disassembled the whole trap and left the pieces side by side It beats all I've ever seen.
