Cool New(ish) Car - 99 GTP :)

Now now now guys... non of this or dh2 or even... Im still going to be a part of the group and Im not leaving for nothing.... been busy alot but should be able to start being on more often to take care of my duties on the forum... bs2

Now... before you all go all on me and call me a traitor or anything.... I got it because I am 24, still young enough to not thrive on the luxury part so the sporty aspect drove me, the power hooked me, and its basically a newer, sportier, more powered, no problem version of my bonnie.

What I just bought, today if you count it still Wednesday lol, is a 1999 Grand Prix GTP (yay l67 hehe) 4dr Sedan (bonnie wannabe i know). Shes only got 67,700 miles so for her age, shes new. Bought it from the dealership i work at (gmc/caddy dealership in town yay lol) for $4,350 and she books for almost $6 in her condition so she was a steal. Besides with all the problems my bonnie was having, shes getting parked in the garage for a later complete overhaul. Needs motor rebuilt, tranny gone thru, fix the headlamp module (2 weeks ago the headlights started coming on and wouldn't go off til the battery was unhooked, lol long story), and tons of minor stuff needs repairing/replacing. Given the time i just jumped on a opportunity to get in a car I love and want, and it was a great price. Plus everything on the car has been done at the shop, I have full info on whats been done including the main recalls so she wont burst into flames hehe yay again

K well I've drug on too long, dan stop rolling your eyes lol j/k

ON TO THE PICTURES!!!! hehe

ps like a mad man, wow theres alot of power difference











Amber (Ball & Chain hehe) happily sitting in the passenger seat looking cute

Nice Reflection, and shes DIRTY... will be cleaned tomorrow, waxed for the night lights on Friday, will post pretty pics on Saturday... so stay tuned, or stock, whichever hahaha

Very hot looking ahh, car, ya, the car looks great. I love GPs almost as much as the bonnie. Just about the same thing, just a bit smaller. That things going to move like crazy. And you can mod like mad now.

Do you really think you should call your GF dirty? hahaha

Congrats Sheffer,
You are now part of the harder to change plugs, less engine bay room, no TA mount, floppy engine, ubend to restrict power and cause KR, saggy butt club.

The up side is there'* 5 million mods both cosmetic and performance that are out there for your new car.

YAY me lol thanks guys

I really like the car and look forward to the complicated process of modding it... before tho i need to buy a programmer/scanner/kr monitor thingy lol. Gotta be able to keep track of the specs if im gonna mod her without blowing her up or reducing hp :P

Im just glad i got a nice looking, low mileage SC version of my bonnie.... i wanted a new car but was keeping it very specific lol

That will depend on what you wish to spend. Aeroforce makes a nice gauge for about $250 and stays in the car. It'* OK information and better then none. But personally I wish I had saved my money and put that towards the HP tuner software I got later. It does FAR more for $500. My advice is this. Your not modding right now, but plan to, save up and get HPT, you will be far more happy in the long run.
