Default My 2002 Buick Century

This is my new baby, a 2002 Buick Century. I got her in January, to replace my 2000 Ranger that I wrote off in November 2010.

The car has about 170 000 kms, and is in good running condition, but she is suffering from the rust :( That will be fixed soon enough, and will get a full paint job. Anyways, on to the pics




and this is a quick chop of what I want it to look like..eventually. I doubt it'* gonna happen, but I can always hope.

Nice car. With weather getting nicer soon you will be able to clean it up and give it a great shine.

Thanks I know the rear disc swap isn't too hard, but i doubt i'll be spending a lot of money on the car yet. I only have a student income, so nothing big yet for a while :(

And this is my favorite

Student income sucks. Summer jobs never seem to pay for more than the gas bill during the summer

I'd really like to get a set of the 2004 Impala LS sport wheels..the (17"?) ones, or something black/dark grey. I hate whats on it now, and how they've corroded. The wheels on my Ranger were the same way. It sucks when you spend so much time making everything else look nice and clean, but the wheels look like crap.

Just looking through the pictures on my computer and came across these of my truck.







This is by far my favorite picture


And my least favorite... this was the aftermath of my last accident. I was lucky, I only had a small friction burn on my neck from the seat belt, and very sore the next day.

A woman made a left turn from a stop sign in front of me, and decided to stop in the middle of my lane when she saw me coming..when I was about 3 car lengths away. It was wet and slippery, so I couldn't avoid her. I hit her rear quarter, went on someone'* lawn and hit the car in their driveway. I wrote my truck off, and the car in the driveway. The woman was found at fault, and her insurance covered both vehicles.
