That was my 93 SSE SC, I sold that last year, was getting worn. I got my 2005 SLE for 11K with 53K miles on it, I now have 62000 on it now. I would have love it if GM offered the HUD in the SLE model.

I swear by AmsOil Synthetic 5W30, I got in everything that uses gas, including my mower and Snow Blower.

Unfortunately the SALTand Calcium in Ohio eats up everything. So I wax the *#!^ out it.

Don't have any good pictures of yet (freshly waxed). I will try to post some pics before a heavy snow.

See my avatar for now..

Had a 93 SSE Supercharged, sold it last year and got my 05 SLE for $11K with 53K miles on it.

I swear by AmsOil Full Synthetic oil, I had it in all my gas powered equipment i.e. mower, snow blower.

I wish GM offered the HUD (Heads-Up-Display) for the SLE model, I loved the HUD in my SSE and the Supercharger was phenominal but I didn't like pumping 18 Gallons of 93 Octane at $4 per gal.

I have a K&N Stock replacement air filter, and Bosh 2+ Plat. plugs

Welcome to the GMForum Tim. Some SLE'* (and other trim levels) have the HUD, I guess it depends on the build/Dealer ordering. A few here have converted to it and could help you with that if you get the inkling for it. And we know a good wrecking yard that specializes in FWD Pontiacs. Ed Morad is just down the block from you. Sure they could come up with the guts needed. http://www.moradpartscompany.com/

Ohh I totally understand the wax ordeal, my car prob has like 2 inches of polish & wax on it from waxing it soo often lol during car show season I fully detail it every single weekend. it'* crazy & I spend like 6-10 hours on it depending on what all I'm doing. My undercarriage is all rusting too bcuz of stupid Missouri salt & the car came from New York so yeah enough said lol. Ohh yeahh that sucks, rust is killer.

It'* a good idea to wash your car with Kerosene to remove the wax buildup and then use a Cleaner Wax (I used Meguires), then a Carnuba wax (Smells like Bannans), I wax the inside all of the jambs as well but I only wipe the external body and leave the heavy wax for the winter in the spots you don't see.
