I purchased the car in 2001 from James-Rivard Pontiac, GMC in Tampa, FL. When I bought it it only had 19K on the clock. After daily driving it for a few years (01-06) I retired it to weekend toy and purchased a daily driver (2005 Chevy Aveo ... go ahead and laugh, it was 10K and gets 32 MPG ...)
When I paid it off it only 32K on it. I then started with the basic mods which I'll document below and in pictures.
Then in 05 and 07 I had my two daughters. With all the expenses of children, food, diapers, daycare, etc. (those of you that have kids know what I'm talking about) anymore projects got shelved for the time being.
Now I just try to take care of it as best as I can and buy little things here and there. My hope is to keep it and be buried in it when I die, haha.
Please see below for modifications and misc. things. Again, feel free to let me know what you think.
