Default Greetings

Hey guys. I'm Mike, and I am a regular on w-body.com and gmwbody.com. I figured I might as well register here as well. My car is a 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix SE with the 3100 V6. My car is strange in the way that it has every option except for the 3.4 DOHC engine. It has leather seats, sunroof, HUD, DIC, CD radio with full equalizer, RKE, etc etc.

My car is my baby. I purchased her in August of 2009, and I love my car more than you can imagine. Thus far the only modifications are dual cherry bomb glasspack exhaust, black interior trim, and a previous owner installed a remote starter. Future plans include either an L67 or a turbocharged 3500, maybe an F40 (haven't decided on that yet), new paint, new wheels, custom interior...

But as of right now, I'm unemployed. So none of that is happening right now. Right now my car just has to survive as a daily driver.

Exhaust video... sounds better in person! There is two parts to this clip... one with a nice easy start, the other at WOT. The only modification is Cherry Bomb Glasspacks in place of the stock mufflers. Still has a cat, the same Y pipe, downpipe, resonator, etc.

Most of these pictures are older. Last night, thanks to White93Z34 on w-body.com, my sunroof now works and my driver'* window stays in the track. Extremely happy with that. I haven't taken any pictures with the sunroof open yet.

One of the first pictures I took of the car and still one of my favorites

Sunset at the park, late winter. It was in the upper 50s when I took this picture, but we (Pittsburgh, PA) had a LOT of snow this winter...

I like the low rumble as well. I bet they wake up nicely in a WOT. People here in the past have rolled their eyes when mentioning Cherry Bombs. Well here'* a good example of them strapped to a 3800. And the price difference is extreme compared to name brand "performance exhaust" They can use all the media BS they want about performance. Straight thru gives you best flow.

Actually I have a 3100. I wish I had a 3800.

Not up with GP engine sizes, and wouldn't have guessed by the sound. I have always liked the sound of CherryBombs, and don't like to spend money needlessly or for a "name" They will likely end up on the GXP whenever the OEM'* rust out.

I think when they changed the body style in 97 they switched to all 3800s in the GP V6, not 100% sure though.

He even mentioned it in the first post, but I like BillBoost, usually skip it and go right for the dessert.
