About

When I became a member of the Grand Prix society I recalled seeing this car in his infamous photoshoots after his fantastic detailing. I loved this car alongside quite a few other people. Eventually my first car was sold when my parents purchased a truck for me to drive (I have horses) and so I knew if I ever got a Grand Prix again it'd be a GTP and it'd be that car.

At the time he wasn't set on selling it, he'd bought his wife a G8 GT, but I no longer frequented the forums he stayed on. Didn't quite get along with the crowd there. Around May/June of 2009 I was browsing Autotrader (like I always do when I'm bored) and I recognized a picture. It was DuBob's GTP, I was floored. Hastily I opened the article and looked it over, the car had about 104k miles on it but was still in gorgeous shape from what I could tell. Mind you I'm in VA and he was in PA, so an in person viewing wasn't logical at the time.

I started to email Dave, letting him know that I loved his GTP and was seriously interested in it. I'd looked at a Black GTP sedan earlier that year and almost bought it, ended up going with my better judgment and passed. So when Dave's became available I was chomping at the bit to get it. My predicament? I couldn't afford it.

I had no credit and my bank would only loan me 3/4 of the money he wanted for the car. I had nothing in savings (I was not money wise at the time) except for a small chunk, a grand. The price was below what he was asking and more around the KBB range, so the worse he could say ... was no. So I sent him the offer and to my disappointment he said he couldn't accept the offer. So I let it go with a heavy heart.

A week or so later I was emailed back and he said he had thought about it and reneged on his decision. Said I was the only person interested in the car as a whole and not parts. So with the offer accepted I worked on getting the loan (which was a royal PITA, thanks USAA for making it difficult) and now the car sits in my driveway. In about half a year I will be in possession of the title and it'll be paid off!
