Default the aurora

so here a couple pics of my aurora. its my daily driver. it has a bad head gasket but has some stop leak in it so i can drive to school and back. the odomiter says it has only 100,000 but i highly doubt it. id say it has at least 150,000 cause its on it second trans and after looking at the repair records it just proves it to me. also someone had it repainted with cheap paint witch is now falling off. i paid $2900 for it last may when every thing was good on it. if i could only get my hands on the pervious owner now.

I've always thought the Aurora was a really cool-looking car. And relatively quick with the 4.0 !

I always thought that was a sharp looking car. Love the interior. Is that a pearl white?

Nice ride Josh! My Dad had an Aurora and it was an awesome car on road trips. I was driving him to AZ a couple of years ago and in California hit a deer. The car has just under 5K miles on and the damage was over $4K.

Good thing I was driving and not Dad - his reactions are not that good anymore. If I hadn't power braked, the friggin deer would have ended up in the passenger compartment.

My Dad goes through car'* like most people go through underwear. That Aurora is gone....about 20 cars ago.

We were trying to figure out how many cars my Dad has had since his first one and we ended up loosing track around 60+. Aint no lie! He turned 80 last March.

The one I really wanted him to keep was the Cadillac XLR-V....he decided it was time for a Lexus RX and sold the Caddy.... I just about cried.
