Lizzie is on a distinguished road
Default Came here from... and yes, i'm a girl

Hello. my name is Lizzie. I actually came here from W-Body.com... which by the way, if you are not a member of it already, it'* nothing special and I personally would not join unless you have to... it'* full of ********... trust me.... anyway
I got my car as a gift from my dad on February 8th, 2007... my senior year.
It is a 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix LE...her name is Duchess... and like any car, mine has issues. By that I mean that, the door handles are not sure if they want to work sometimes or not... the locks on my doors are sometimes confused as to whether they will unlock for me... the downshift from 2nd to 1st is rough (always has been... at least since I've had it anyway). my husband has his own business (chip tuning, obd1.5-obd1 conversion harnesses, aldl cables) and he has been tuning my car for a couple years now... and I have noticed quite a bit of difference from the way Duchess was senior year to the way it runs now...
I am here to get some real help from people that are not complete douches... over at W-Body... they all think that because I am a girl, I know absolutely nothing about nothing and think they can treat me like dirt... and that does not go over well with me....

Nice to meet you all in advance!

Welcome to the forum. I'd love to see Duchess, if you have pics of her.

wow... greeted by friendly people... interested in my car and not leghumping like w-body... i like it already...

my car is nothing special... the original owner (the guy i got it from.. so yes, makes me 2nd owner) said that it was caught up in a hail storm several years ago... which is why there is rust on the roof/hood and also why the paint is chipping really badly... though, i'm pretty sure GM also had something to do with the paint chipping... lol

here is my most recent picture of her... enjoy!

locks are sticky, handles were fixed last winter and the godawful 4T60 likes to stay in 3rd WAY too long and kicks down to 2nd around 10MPH causing whiplash, then a smooth 2-1 transition...
