Default My new ride

Okay so before everyone gets too giddy, it's nothing special, and I only paid $500 for this car...so bare with me on the condition of it..

As most of you know, I drive, well drove, a 07 Cobalt SS/SC, however due to my moms passing, some circumstances have made me have to get rid of/stop driving the car. (I'm not going into detail so don't ask please)

It's a 1998 Pontiac Firebird (V6) with T-Tops (which I LOVE) with a custom paint job, that looks green/blueish in the sun, and purple/blueish in the shade

The only bad thing about the car was I had to replace the wheels and tires, a battery, radio and a driverside window lift motor. Car has 139k on the clock and runs extremely well.

Now for the pictures:





















Note: I was just kidding about the condition comment, I got a steal with this car.

Damn, not bad for $500. I would have picked that up instantly. Where did you find that?

BTW: That is a stock paintjob

Person who I bought it from had it painted...the door jams are a different color than the car (looks different in person)

A friend from work sold it to me to get it out of his parents driveway

He said the door jams are a different color. Leading most people, you should be lead especially, to believe the car was painted. Maybe it was painted that color??

I didn't sell/trade/etc the balt, it's in my driveway. Not going to go into anymore detail than that. And I wasn't really planning on doing the exhaust...i just was blurting ideas out.
