Grand Prix GXP

History
Purchased at the suggestion of Bob Lutz on June 20, 2005. On January 16, 2016, it has 47,800 miles on it and it looks and slams along like new. My intention is to have the lower fascia repainted in 2017 and have it detailed inside, outside, topside, bottomside, "all over side," and then have the paint resealed. I've even thought of taking it to a Detroit hot rod shop for some suspension, braking and engine tweaks.
