Default grand prix gxp gratuitousness (56k not for you)

i used to post here lots, but now i just lurk. i totalled my bonne a few years ago when i took out a bambi. i bought a 99 grand prix with the insurance money. then i got a decent job and bought a decent car.....here it is.



















my car with other cars:



my lowly se hiding behind my gxp


the elusive sub and toolbox mod


aftermarket locks

this is from my mom'* cadillac--which she doesnt realize ive stolen


these are custom made by someone in a machine shop......they might be the same size for the bonnes if anyone'* interested who did them, just ask.




my ho-made fwi, because $200 is too much for an intake





here is a video of my car after i put the magnaflow exhaust on (12mb)
exhaust

i know i know, its not a bonneville, but then...what else is? let me know what you folks think.

Nice! Very nice.

I was considering a GXP when I bought my CompG, but couldnt afford the premium price for the 5.3L.

Well done.
