Correct. I own a black 2000 SLE. 77Kms (45Kmi), Leather, Moonroof... Just nicely set up. I just picked it up from work on Friday, so I'm just getting into it.

I also own a 1991 Chev Cavalier RS, so I'm also over on the 2nd gen J-body Scene.

Welcome Turbobird, by your name, I'd guess that there'* either a T-bird turbo-coupe or a turbocharged Sunbird somewhere in your past?

Yeah, you've got me there. In my past, and in my future...

My first car was a 1990 Sunbird GT Turbo. 5-speed, 165HP, sunroof... that thing was a screamer. Too bad I pushed her a little too hard and ended up with connecting rod going through the oilpan.

I'm also building a Turbocharged 3400 Hybrid for my other, other car, a '91 Sunbird LE.

Nope... 297,000Km.

I didn't own it long enough to do any work to it. And I was only 16 at the time too.

That, and those pesky Brazilian 2.0'* wern't the most reliable. They ate head gaskets like the 2.3 W41 in the 'rettas...
