Paint can be polished and waxed. She will look nice real good after that. The inside looks real nice. You got a nice car there with a LOT of life left in it.

yea I put her through her paces today and even for not being the supercharged model... Still throws you into the leather hard when you stomp it... A huge improvement over my last two vehicles a 2001 Saturn L200 and a 1991 Isuzu Pickup

My main thing is trying to find out what kind of speakers are all around this car so I can replace them (I can't afford a new headunit at the moment but good aftermarket speakers would make a world of difference and prep my sound for the new headunit)

Ah... my first mechanical problem. The car will chug when entering or exiting the passing gear while in overdrive... My dad (who is a master GM mechanic) took it into work with him and said it is most likely the Torque converter solenoid. (about 150ish to fix). Hopefully it can be fixed quickly and I can get back to driving the car instead of the beater pickup that my dad has.
