The wood trim package is an expensive add on.. Around $300 IIRC. Many like it..

Ok..When are you going to get swoopies?

This wood trim looks like it was one of those ebay purchases and added onto the trim

And why would I want swoopies when I have Torque stars?

Summer summer summertime!!!

Thanks Cheetah. Yes all fluids will be changed, but prefferably at the same time.

I Love the car!! I even have a remote start which is pretty neat. I can start it from my 5th floor hallway

The gas mileage is also good. Im amazed that I havent burned through a half a tank of gas yet since I filled it a little over a 100 miles and only a 1/4 tank NIIIIICCCEEEE!!!

In the 94, I would have burned just under half a tank

I feel it will be under the knife soon, ohhh within a week or two

I bet it'll get even better mileage after you give it a nice all around tune up.

Congrats on the new car. White Torque Stars on that car would be my wet dream.
