About “The Parts Chaser”

I went looking for a truck and this body style was on my list. I found it in a motorcycle shop I passed on the way to my sisters school. I was exactly what I was looking for except for two things. It has manual brakes and I didn't have the money. My dad and I looked at it twice and the own said he was trailering it to a large car show the next weekend and wasn't expecting to bring it back. That same day we went home and I checked the mail. My dad had recieved a loan offer for $500 more than the asking price. I have a great dad. I have to pay for it but he got the loan for me because of my lack of credit. I had it for a few years. This truck is now my dad's. I needed to get something more reliable. The truck is still in the family though and I can drive it when I want!

About “FieroGT”

um the cars been thru alot my sister bought it from a guy it had blue lights under it and a supra spoiler and was white with grey 2tone. my sister dove it for some time but wrecked it into a van. sensed then she got sick of the car and gave it to me and ive have had the car for about 3-4 months i got it runing again removed the lights and spoiler fixed the front bumper painted it Acapulco blue and galaxy silver ( 2000 grand am color silver) now i got the back bumper in primer and i found a GT spoiler that came on them....now its nothen but time to finish painting and sanding it ppl might not think me puting all this work into this car is worth it but im never gona sell it and it will look nice and run great


About May of 2009 I finished it and damn do i love this car blood sweat and tears in it. Wish i could just get some more horsepower out of it but thats for another day
