Default my new ride!

hey all. thursday i picked up this fairly mint 99 park ave with 103k on the ODO. only difference between the new one and the old one is the new one has lumbar, heated seats, a sunroof and the 8 speaker system. only cosmetic flaws are that the taillight chrome is missing (going to swap the light off the old one) and the driver door has some shallow dents.

i havent really driven it apart from the 70ish miles home, but it did awesome on the drive home.

came home from work in the old one and popped some pics. the new one is the one in back, and the tan one is my dads with 78k on the odo. all 3 are 99'*.

Are u going to move the cb over, what else?
Got any mods planned?

Jason,

Nice pickup! You are going to really enjoy the heated seats.

Looks like a good buy Jason. Could just be the pictures, but it looks like a good candidate for a headlight lense restoration kit.

yeah, i am going to buff them out then spray on some clear coat. ive had bad luck with the magic wax crap thats supposed to keep it from happening again.... the middle park ave had its done in december. roughly 8k miles ago.


today i removed the rear console. i plan on installing some usb ports next to the cup holders. seems like every time i have a passenger, they have a dead phone. plus i need a new tinker project now that the scooter is painted. (dont judge me!) lol.

USB installed inputs sound like a great idea!
The only thing I have for USB charging is a small 150 watt inverter, that has 2 120v sockets & 2 USB outlets. It just has the regular 12v accessory plug with 6' wire.
It comes in handy often!
BTW every time I look at the 3 PA'* lined up, I think to myself, I dont think anywhere else on the road, I have ever seen 2 parked, let alone 3...very unique to see Jason!

i tried to get lauren to buy a PA when the old dude totaled out her civic. she will have no part of it. says its too big. lol. the impala also has heated seats and lumbar too, though. her lumbar is a manual **** though. mine is that fancy circle thing on the side of the seat.

her heaters actually work better than mine due to the fact the buckets have less padding to absorb the heat.

im going to sell the old PA after i remove all of my modifications. thats about a 3 day job in itself. lol.
