Default My new ride, not a Bonnie or even a Pontiac, but it'll do...

So, as I'm sure some of you saw, I made a 1300 mile round trip to eastern PA and back on Saturday. I took my sisters '93 Olds 88 and had no problems whatsoever. I test drove the car and there were no problems, it drives great, and it was exactly as described. I offered $700 for the car, he accepted, and I went on my way. (after checking out his black 5 speed '89 Turbo GP first) The car is a White '90 Lumina Euro. However, this is what I liked about the car, and why I made the trip...



The engine was swapped in by the guy I bought it from, so he would have something to drive around while he was converting his Turbo GP to a 5 speed.

Some pics of the exterior:





I'll get some better pics when I get the chance, these are the pics he showed me before I went to look at the car. I figure for $700 it won't be a bad car to drive around while I'm fixing my GP and doing a few mods to it. This car already has a chip in it, and will likely have a few of the cheap/free mods done to it in the very near future. It runs extremely well and should be a good driver. You can't tell from the pics, but it has dual exhaust from the Turbo GP he got the engine from, however its tucked under the bumper about 3-4" so its kinda hidden. I'm not sure if I'll lengthen it out so it is close to even with the bumper, or if I'll leave it where it is, I haven't decided yet.

Thats the idea. I love sleepers, always have, and as soon as I heard about this car, and found out it was for sale, I HAD to have it. Then I heard the price was $800 obo, and then I saw pics, I got it as soon as I could. Its definately me. There will be some hints for unsuspecting people, but chances are they won't know it. I am putting my "COOLED2" plate from the GP on it, then I'll be getting "COOLED6" for the STE. I am contimplating getting some intercooled stickers for the rear quarter windows.

Thats 5 forced induction cars out of 7 now in this household.

if you are going for the whole sleeper look, why bother with the stickers? btw, you should shoot some videos of that thing tearing up the roads.
