Smile New here!

Hey guys. Just wanted to introduce myself real quick. Name is Cory. I just bought a 97 Grand Am GT as a project car for $200. So far the only thing wrong with it is an ignition problem. Other than that after I get it running it'* great. Definately worth the $200.

About myself though, I'm a vehicle operator in the Us Air Force, so all I do is drive. I have some minor maintenance knowledge but not the best. I'm more a parts replacement kinda guy than a troubleshooter!

Especially since if I decide to just forget about the project I can scrap it for more than that! It runs great though. Even after sitting for over a year.
