I still have the stock wheels and tires...The cool thing is this car came with a ton of history. The owners have kept a log book of all maintenance and repairs to the car with mileage documented. I have all the repair receipts.

The car needs a few things fixed from not being driven: The headliner is starting to bubble in a few places and the rear main leaks, but so did my last one.

The driver side rear quarter and door have had some repair at some point or GM did a horrible job with paint prep. The paint quality is awesome but the prep work is questionable. I'm extremely picky, most people won't even see it. I was told that the car still wears it's original paint.

There are a few door dings, and a notable dent in the hood from where someone pushed down too hard when they closed the hood. I'm hoping that the dent-less repair guys can remedy those issues. Again, I'm picky!

The previous owner stated that the car hasn't seen rain or snow (ever?). When the car was delivered this week, it was sprinkling but it was only in that for 30 seconds or so.

The door bottoms are spotless. You can eat off the underside of this car!

The interior is stock with a few issues that need attention:

The rear speakers are dry rotted and need replaced. (The power antenna still works!)

I have the factor floor mats in the trunk and are used only when showing. The after market turbo mats are used for daily driving.

Nice looking car, welcome to the site.

I hear you about the dry rotted speakers, mine started sounding REALLY bad this spring and then I looked in the trunk and noticed the speaker surrounds crumbled and lying on the trunk floor!!! :eek!: A new set of speakers and it sounds much better now. :yup:

So when I climbed under the car, I found that it wasn't the rear main seal on the motor leaking. The passenger side valve cover gasket is leaking like no bodies business. It has a cork gasket currently in place. This is a much easier fix!
