About “My Ride”

I traded my S-10 for this car, plus gained $200, and no sales tax at Extreme Clean Auto Sales in PB MO. (not a bad deal at all).
It has aprox. 109k miles, Blue, T-Tops, No Candy though ... The only thing I've had to replace on it (maintenance wise) was the Electronic Throttle Body (supposed to be common with this year Camaro). Normally a 500-700 dollar part. I found one at a graveyard for 150, and "MY PEEPS" at Meineke hooked me up with a great deal on labor while also replacing the 02 sensor. I just got an oil change, next is a tune up, tires, drvtrn grease (synthetic w/ slip additive), and auto transmission flush ...
