Default Just getting started and...

Of course I joined the club

This is a 1995 Bonne SLE with a 2001 GP 3800 Series II engine. I've had the car for 10 years and the original miles are 72k+. I rescued the car from my son. gave it to him last year...m, that was a mistake) He now drives his own car!



Thanks to Bill Boost, I got a few items that I needed. Like the trunk insulator

I added these mud guards

These duck canvas seat covers were a steal from Ebay

Chrome tip from Pep Boys (notice lockless trunk deck)

ProBurners. Plain white glass from Walmart (got the idea from here)

And of coarse, the mesh grill looked so good on Patrick'* I had to borrow the idea! I'm going to do custom mesh covers for the ProBurners as well.

We also have (hold on) A 2004 Olds Bravado (my daily), a 2002 Saab Convertible (wifes) a 2002 bright yellow Sunfire (daughter), a 70 Mustang open headers etc. (son), a 94 Fleetwood Brougham (son), a 72 VW Bug (daughter), and a spare car which is a 2000 Ford Escort.

Looking to do some tint, new system, and clean up the engine a bit. I also need a new grill. I did get an SLE badge from Bill as well. Gotta get that thing on!

well i think yo uhold the record for the fastest install of club decals for time of registration, IMO the should have gone on the bottom of the window but it still looks good.
As for the car its self i like it and how clean it is, tint would look great on there to

We thought about that...there were a few other factory stickers down low when we put it on. Eventually we peeled the other ones off.
