Was just thinking how I haven't posted pics of my Grand Prix's here at all, so I figured I might as well get on the ball:

1998 GTP
Purchased in December. Mods: Eibach 1" lowering spring, KYB AGX struts, Speedbuilt front sway bar, Eagle Alloy 077's (16x8), Intense 4" FWI, 180* t-stat, front PEM, F.U.L.L. 3" exhaust (catless, hf resonator, 3" Raven mufflers), pcm tuned to 19* advance with 0 KR, 35% tint.
Pic take fresh out of getting painted (note -no mouldings installed yet).
Image

2001 GP GT Special Edition
Purchased in early March hoping to fix. Nope -while I was enroute to buy it sellers took their truck and pushed the rr of the car off the lawn by pushing on the rr quarter panel... um, yeah.... :roll: :evil:
That push was the push that put it over the edge.

2001 GP GTP Special Edition
Purchased April 8th (yesterday)
Mods already done: Smoothflow MPS (3.5"), Pioneer DEH P6600MP deck, wired for amp/subs, trunk dynomatted, 3" exhaust (dp to stock Y), K&N cone filter on stock intake flex tube, 180* t-stat, AL 104 plugs, Belden Max wires, Kemp tuned (19* advance, 2-4* KR).

Hmm, only the 01 GTP SE is 'from' the St. Cloud area -guy I bought it from is originally from Cold Spring, but has been living in Bloomington for the past 2 years.

No wonder you screwed up the rocker moldings, you can't turn that sharp with my dolly ;)

The new one looks great.

I've always liked the bodystyle of the 98 and the 04 body is just now starting to grow on me.I may yet get one or the other.

Pics should all be viewable again -new month started on my PB acct.
Also have a few pics I snapped last week after bringing the car home. Didn't get any pics of the car after polishing and waxing the car besides the pics of the projectors installed (need to do the anti-bounce mod, align and install HID's).

Cameron and I swapped the 3.29 trans over a couple evenings earlier this week.
I also installed a Buick Regal front STB and the 18" Akuza Creepin's with Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 255/45/18's.
Just need to finish the chase of fixing one blown speaker after another (literally, down to the last speaker -they've all blown in succesion of each other -I replaced 1 at a time and immediately another one blows). :bluetwitch: :evil:

*dang* Marty. We just picked that up less than a month ago and it looks a million times better.

Not a fan of the chrome five spokes though.

I think a set of chrome 5-spokers looks good on a GTP, just not necessarily THOSE 5-spokers. JMHO.
