Wow, nice Aurora. It brings back memories for me. My grandparents had a 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora, a lot like yours, except theirs was sort of a golden brown color. I LOVED that car. When I was little a highlight of a visit to my grandparents was getting to ride in it. Later on I got to drive it for myself, and it was awesome to my 16 year old self! So smooth, and refined, and it made sexy noises if you pushed it.

When my grandparents died, I was originally slated to get it, but things changed, and I ended up getting my grandad'* truck instead. I'm not complaining, I love my truck...but the Aurora ended up going to my cousin, who shortly sold it because it was an "old person'* car". Man, I wish that car could have ended up with someone who appreciated it! I hated to see it go.

Anyway, sorry for the trip down memory lane, but that body style of Aurora holds fond memories for me. Nice car!

That is a nice ride you have. Pearl scares me. Has to be expensive to paint.

It probably is expensive, but from what I've seen, it usually holds up pretty well over time if its done properly.

yes pearl is very expensive to paint. witch is what i'm going to have to do this summer. but my dads a car painter and him and his buddy will do it for free. but materials are going to be 1,000 alnoe. but im doing all the prep work myself. some body had it repainted it with laquaer before i bought it. so if i put touch up paint on it , it softens the other paint around it. they also didn't even sand the primer ! i also saw the guy i bought it off of yesterday and he said "looks like you need a paint job" with a smile on his face. i wanted to punch him so bad but coulden't because he would probbaly sue me.
