Default My new ride... Silver Taupe '97 SSE all stock

Here she is...








**yes my gas gauge is inop




It'* in nice shape minus all the "delivery dirt," but it needs a date with the claybar fairy big-time. I love the stereo, the BOSE in this beats the JBL in my old Lincoln for sure, but no CD player:( I need to look into it but evidently you can add a CD changer and run it through the FM on your stereo. More pics coming when it'* shined to my standards.

Looks great, Steve!

On that gas guage, you probably should read up on the fuel level sender unit back on your gas tank with the fuel pump. Many here with your series, including me, have had to replace that unit. Better to do so now than to have a more major failure in the future.

Of course, I should also tell you to make sure that you know what your problem really is before moving forward.

Nice.

Why would a car come with a Bose stereo and only a tape deck?!

Looks really good for a 7 year old car. Is that 142k on the odometer? Best of luck with the new ride. Welcome to BC.
