Now that I've figured out how to post some pictures, I figure I better put a couple pictures up!

Keep in mind, these pictures are from many months ago, when I first bought this car. And yeah, it is a little dirty, I hadn't washed it at this point yet. When I bought it, it had some rust bubbling around the gas door, like some others do, but I had that cut and replaced as soon as possible.

So far it is all stock, performance wise, and has a few different interior pieces, which ill get to soon.
Enjoy!

Rear end

KoolVue Exhaust tips
These came on the car when I bought it, and I kinda like 'em :P

Right side (little shakey)

Interior
Image


Like I said, I've done some interior work, and I hope to get some pictures of it online sometime soon. In the mean time, this is basically how she looks as is!

----------UPDATE-----------

Just washed and waxed the car and got some vent parts from Harofreak00 and thought I'd update the pictures.

Image

New vents! I really like the contrast the tan adds :beerchug:
Image

New door handle bezels too
Image

Image

Well that's basically my interior. I want to get tan speaker covers in the front, too but I don't know how to get those out. Gonna swap for tan window switches one of these days, too.
Also, anyone know if there are tan shift boots? I'd like to get one if there is.

She runs nice, the only problem is I keep getting a service stability system warning. Planning on fixing this sometime in the future.

SSS warning without the ABS/Trac Off lights is 99% the steering wheel position sensor. Mine's been broken the entire time I've had the car.

Oh really? Huh, I never would have guessed. It doesn't come up always, but when it does it certainly bugs me. Is there any way to fix this?

J&R out of Sioux Falls I'm guessing? They always have a lot of Bonnevilles, Grand Prixs, Impalas, etc.

Ha yeah I got it in Sioux Falls. They sure do have a lot of Bonnevilles and such! i think about at least 1/3 if not more of these cars around where I live have come from there. Its a decent enough dealer, but the guy who haggled with us over the price had no idea what he was talking about and pretended like he did. Wasn't hard to talk him down to a lower price! :P

Not a huge fan of the tan on gray (and the fact that I hate tan interiors has little to do with it). Get some GXP stuff, you'll be glad you did. ;)

I mostly put it in because I cant stand all the gray, I would have preferred it if Pontiac would have made it all black. This was a breath of fresh air, in my opinion.I was going to look into getting the GXP stuff. How much do you think a full on set would cost me? Plus a GXP shift knob? And is there any How-To's on swapping shift knobs?

Hopefully one of these days I get a raise.

I can't decide how I feel about the two tone. :O Maybe if you could find parts from the rare camel interior...

The two tone thing is definitely original. Not really my taste but I think it still beats spending a royal pile on gxp
