New car!

Postby Ne14a6tee9 » Thu Feb 23, 2006 8:55 pm



Finally! I've wanted a GP GTP for such a long time...especially a 2 door. I wrecked my Cavalier back in December, and then I had a 90 Tbird Supercoupe...but the engine threw a rod a few weeks back. I just picked this up on Tuesday. Sorry for the crappy cell phone picture, but I'll be taking better pictures tomorrow.

Info on the car: 98 Grand Prix GTP Daytona 500 Edition, #1214 of 1500, 92K, black leather interior. I usually wouldnt buy a car with "high" mileage, but its in such great shape I couldnt resist!

I wanted to get another Beretta...but I'm glad I got this instead!  :banana

Sweet. GTPs are pretty dang nice cars. I think they are 10 times better as 2 doors.  :)

nice, I love the supercharged SII.  You need a pulley and two pieces of pipe......
There was one at the yard, a daytona one, so theres at least one less.  It was even the same color as yours.

Ok...I took some more pictures...but its still with a cell phone camera...just a better one.

The car looks green in some of the pictures, but its blue. Well its blue during the day, then a teal blue once the sun goes down...of course I didnt notice that till I bought it...and it was night time...haha.






Someone cant take a picture right...



Brand spankin new Bridgestone Potenza's...











The tips look pretty cheap looking, but I can always change those. I'm pretty sure it has 2 flowmasters on it, its pretty loud. I just want to get the windows tinted darker. Theyre tinted now, but you can hardly tell!

Looks nice.  

There must have been much more damage to your Cavalier to total it.  I only see the bent rear axle and some fender damage.

There was about $5,000 worth of damage. The airbags went off, and also busted the windshield...that would be the only other damage you cant see in that picture.

They also took $2,600 off the value of the car for "excessive mileage".  :;):

I just took some more random pictures. I love this car...hopefully I can keep miles off of it!

I keep forgetting to take a pic of the engine, but dont worry...its a 3.8 SC.  :D

Gotta love the steering wheel volume controls!



I like this too, much better than a sunroof I would hardly open. I finally have a place for my sunglasses..



I know its an auto so it really dosent matter, but I like this shifter a lot...and the dual climate control.



Auto dimming mirror



I havent been able to get great mileage since I've just been driving around town...but I like this info center.



Door badge



One of these days I'll borrow my friends digi and get some better pictures.
