Default found a clone of my car today - comparison pics

this car is the exact same as mine (on a cursory glance, i didnt look closer), same color, same trim etc. so i snapped some pictures - its stock! so heres some comparison pics, one from the side and one from the tail. sorry, no current pic of mine from the side (dunno how that escaped my notice, ill correct that in a week). you get the idea.

In a mass marketing scheme, Pontiac decided to produce more than just one of the same car...





















Sorry, I couldn't resist....

I don't think there was more than 1 siver offered from 2000-2005 (there was a greystone offered, but that isn't it). It was probably just dirty...

Nice one driverjohn...


Your tails, jwaka, are an advertisement for that guy to do the same to his. You can really see the difference in that last shot.

it kinda bugs me that if i want my car to go back to stock, all i need to find is a stock 00+, and in about 30 mins i can go to completely stock. swap tails, lights, and wheels. i WILL fix that. just waiting for some money to come.

oh, my name is jeff.

Sorry that I didn't remember your name, Jeff.

Still, you've made it yours. I think you've gone a long way compared to that bone stock one.
