Default My New Car (no 56K)

Here she is.. got her about a week ago. It'* a 2001 Grand Prix GTP Special Edition. Has about 89K on it. This is after I washed it with dawn, it'* in the garage right now so the paint can cool a bit and I can claybar and LG it. Figured it will likely be dark when I'm done. It'* stock for now. I took out the plastic under the heat extractors on the hood so they will actually function, I don't imagine the water would hurt the engine, judging by the vents a few have installed and the fact people wash their engine bays. It needs a front arrowhead and is missing a couple lugnut covers on one wheel. My stereo will go in later this week, waiting for one more part in the mail. Luckily the wiring should be exactly the same as the Bonnevile behind the dash. Hope to get some performance mods in before the end of the summer, at least an intake and U-Bend delete. It may have a 180* thermostat already in it, the temperature rarely goes over that 180. Anyways, on to the pictures. Needs front grilles and clear corners too.

Yeah, those are very similar to the 300M wheels and don't fit the Grand Prix very well. Looks nice though.

actually that bumper has been replaced with a Non GM Bumper, thus the arrowhead spot is gone....honestly if you stick on on there is will look out of place...i like the debaged look

I noticed the missing gap for the arrowhead, didn't know it was a GM only thing. Thanks. That'* probably why the bottom part of the bumper isn't gray. I knew it had been in a front-end collision. Thanks Pat.

I'm not huge on the wheels either, but beggars can't be choosers. I wouldn't mind trading them for another set of stock GP wheels, aftermarket'* too expensive for me.

Yeah, i was going to say the same on the arrowhead.

And I like the wheels, but wish they were 17" or 18". I looked at getting a set.
