Looks are one thing, but it'* got me thinking just how long this car will last, both mechanically and cosmetically. Which will give out first? This car has been stomping around the Forum for almost 6 years now, and was no spring chicken when I bought it. Granted it was only 65k miles when I got it, but it was still aging.

I suppose you could sell it and buy a Kia?
All you need is one new reliable car...in other words your 95

Man, with the way you take care of it I can't see how it would ever die.

That is an unbelievably clean engine bay! Looks like you could eat off of it!

I didn't know you got the hood painted finally! I love the pontiac logo

The hood does have it'* flaws, but for a garage job (while recovering from hand surgery), it turned out pretty good. Far better than the black primer it had for almost 2 years.

I like the UNDER side just as well though. It came out pretty cool.
