Default my new whip

I am picking this car up tommorow, hopefully if it's not too snowy. These are just pics I've gotten from the previous owner. It's not 100% my style, but I will make it what I want.

It's got 39,000 miles, the previous owner added the stripes, spoiler, dual exhaust, "skyline" body kit, 18" Valkyrie wheels, Halo Headlights, In dash monitor hooked up to a 6-disc CD/DVD/MP3 CD changer, 1100 Watt MTX Amplifier, 2 - 10" Polk Audio Subwoofers. He also included a brand new set of black and yellow racing seats and harnesses with the car.

In the interior it also has yellow boots on the shifter and the parking brake, and ractive pedals ( i think they are just clamp on)

Along with all this, I am getting the original front and rear bumpers, headlights, and the stock alloy wheels and tires.















Now, the seatcovers, yellow pedals, yellow shift boot, altezzas, that stuff has to go. I'm not completely sure about the stripes, I'll probably remove them so it doesn't draw SO MUCH attention to itself. I just graduated college and I am trying to get a teaching job, so I want to tone it down some. I'm sure I'll sell the speakers and amp in order to gain more room in the back. Not sure what I'm going to do from there.

The engine, I might add a CAI and underdrive pulley.

Be careful when dealing with cars that have gotten the rice conversion, my friend bought a 99 Cougar with 80,000 miles on it (not extremely high by any means) with a custom paint job, body kit, and aftermarket exhaust. It died about 3 months after he bought it. It had a duratec 2.5 engine in it, not sure if this is the same, it doesn't look like it. Well have fun!

It would be a lot better if it was black and silver or another color combination. The yellow is gay. PM steveo. I heard he was looking for some gay colored parts. I think he wants to stand out more. HA as if fags dont already stand out enough.
