I saw the very same granite 03 on Ebay listed for a Buy-it-Now of $15000, with the 5 spoke rims. I guess by 02, the swoops were out, and Pontiac had to get rid of their rims.

Nice color, and that is my completely unbiased opinion.

A nice critique, when you ***** the car, turn the flash off, I can tell you had the flash on when you took a picture of the rear end.

Otherwise looks grrrreat!

A flash is good for certain conditions. I was using a 'fill flash' to bring out some more details due to lower light conditions. Unfortunately for rear end shots it lights up the reflectors. I used the flash on the front end shots too.

I took some pics from the drivers side, but didn't post them because the flash wasn't doing much in the shadow. :(

Lol i didn't even realize so many of you had them, i completely forgot boost had them on his 97 too.

Now that i really think about it, the 00+ crowd in illinois is pretty swoopified as well. Allmachtige, 01bonnesc, pearlbonnie02, AND taylor D all have swoopies leaving me with the 5 spokes and tommygloves on GXP'*

Nice pics, but you're brave to work on your car when drinking. I refuse to drink when I'm touching my engine.

It was so hot Saturday, I was thirsty!! I got some great microbrews so I decided to have a few. They didn't interfere with my work at all.

I forgot to reinstall the EGR tube before I bolted down the supercharger, but that was not caused by the beer!
