    My 95 Grand Am GT 5spd

    Since C&G is down and I just took new pics of my car, I'm going to post them here.

    It's a Spruce green matallic coupe with the 150hp Quad4 and 5spd. It's stock for the most part except for a few things. Currently, though, the headgaskets leak and it ticks. Nothing too serious as it is runable, just have to check the oil for water quite often and keep a close eye on the gauges. Other than that and the need for a new paint job, it's in excellent condition.

    The very few mods include: Clarion ProAudio reciever, DEI Viper security system, K&N air filter, AVS headlight covers, and a "Grand Am GT" window sticker.

    However, the long list of what I plan to do/get includes: lower it 1 1/2 inches, 17" Mille Miglia wheels, tint windows, clean up cladding, Optilux/Hella angel eye foglamps, Sylvania Silverstar bulbs, custon angel eye headlights (maybe), custom LED/clear taillights (maybe), custom leather seats, Alpine Type-S speakers/sub, Alpine 5-way amp, upgrade to 4 wheel disc brakes, performance exhaust, and if I can find one... a supercharger. Alot of that depends on certain things, though.

    Here are the pics:

    Very clean '95. Lose the headlight covers.

    If you do all the audio up, keep it low profile and/or get a nice alarm system for it. Your friends won't break into your car and steal it, but your friends have friends and your friends talk, and eventually one of your friends' scummy friends will hear about it and then you'll have a broken window and no stereo. (oh, I missed that you already had a security system. Good deal.)

    All those accessories and mods? Forget about it, nothing but a money sink and they're tacky anyway. Don't saddle yourself with car debt this early on in the game.

    I hardly use the covers. They came with the car and are just there. Sometimes I put them on, but they are usually filling up my back seat. I prefer them that way, anyways.

    As for the audio, I'm planning on it being "low-profile." I want it to be a balanced system. 4 speakers, 1 sub, and an amp powering all of it. As for the security system, I see that you figured that out, but currently it's not hooked up. I actually don't know if I really need it being out in the country... simple small town life with very few worries. I'll definitely keep it hooked up just in case, however.

    Finally, the mods/accessories. Well, the performance mods are most likely going to happen. Except some of my plans have changed... yes, already. Some of the cheaper appearance mods of going to happen as well. Besides, it's just money...

    Nice - sounds very good. It's easy to get carried away with car audio and end up with something that's powerful but lacks quality.

    That's a great looking car; you can probably lie to members of the opposite sex and tell them it's a 2000.

    If you have money for mods I would probably put it into replacing the headgasket first - oil leaks have a way of catching up with ppl, even careful ppl.
