Default The future ride

So I just wanted to share something with all of you. In about a year, my sister will be graduating college. She vowed that after she graduated, she would get herself a brand new Cadillac CTS since she'* in love with it. She has a new car as of now that she pays for herself. Once she graduates, her car now becomes mine. When she brought her previous car back, I built this one exactly how I would like it if I were to get it. I did this because I knew she would only have it for a short time. In addition to my Bonne, I'll have this:

You can tell a girl owns it by looking at what'* hanging by the rearview hahaha.









Tell me what you guys think.

Future mods: Just 6000K heads and fogs, tints and maybe tinted tails. lol. Thanks for looking

Thanks. They definitely have. I used to hate the old ones. But this one is really nice. Has some bite to it too. The ride is really comfortable.

Thank you. I made them put those rims on because the ones she was getting didn't go well with the color. I'm definitely going to have fun with it during the summer though.

I've got a friend who just bought a gallant a while back. He did a lot of research before buying it and ultimately picked it because it was decently quick and drove nice compared to the other cars he had driven. Lucky you to be acquiring a sweet car like that!

She had the 07 model before this one. She absolutely loves it. Considering it was all she really could afford, it'* a really nice car. She didn't do much research but that'* where I came in. As I've said previously, I'm a Chevy guy. But this car is absolutely amazing. It'* not even a V6 and it moves. The amount of looks I get in this car when I'm driving it is amazing. It stands out because of the rims I had them put on. I love it. Hopefully I'll be able to keep my Bonne as well. If not, I'll be giving it right back to my uncle considering he loves her.

I've heard nothing but good about the Galant. The cars lines are nice and I like the color. It looks a lot like a cross between a Benz and a Volvo.

From experience, it'* a really reliable car. Very sharp looking and definitely an attention grabber. Especially the way this one is set up. My sister originally wanted white but I strayed her away from it and convinced on to get black. This of course made me even more happy considering I knew it would be mine. lol. it looks amazing when it'* just washed. I love washing it by hand rather than taking it to get washed. It'* not even my car yet. haha. I agree with you on that though. Definitely see how it could be a mix between a Benz and a Volvo.

They should have put the 4G63T backed by AWD. That would be a fun car to drive

Nice. Digging those wheels. You're going to leave the rear view decorations when you get it right?
