Hi Guys,

Working on my first PPV car...it's a 2011 never used by any police department and with 19K miles. I've been driving 19 years and have had 20 cars, most of which have been GM and had a proper amount of cylinders under the hood. That includes 1 GTO, 2 G8's (1 M6 GXP) and 1 2016 Chevy SS. Looking at this car as my daily. My only fear is all of the mods I want to do...

Anyway, will keep you posted on whether that happens or not this week. In either case, happy to be a part of this community.


Take care,

Brent
Roselle, IL

That's the one...actually found the Craig's List ad via this site.

Have met with the owner and seen the car and talked to him. Lots. Very nice guy. Knows more about GM cars and option codes going back to early 60's than anyone I have ever met in my life which is saying a lot!

Welp, transaction complete and she's home. A couple pics pre-all day detailing affair. Car is not currently up to my standards in terms of cleanliness but soon will be. I first went to DMV for TTL then went straight to Weathertech headquarters to pick up some digital liners.

The previous and proud owner was very delighted to give me a brand new hat to go with the car as well. :lol:

Good times...

Plan to do exhaust, CAI, tune, lower it and put some real rubber and OEM GM rolling stock of some kind on it in the spring.
