All that money and they didn't do anything about the cheap GM cloth seats? Go for it BV, as long as you're destroying Grand Ams, you might as well destroy the worst there are.

Thanks GM. More lost sales to Accords, Tiburons & Altimas.

Oh boy... sounds interesting. *clicks link* :blink:

Oh my... I hate the AED body kit. I hate that paint job. Lots of electronics, I see. A reserve that's not met, too, with no buy it now. Also... where the hell is King of Prussia, PA?

Yeah, I don't do ebay unless it has a buy it now feature. That... and the car will likely not be cheap. A 2000 with 52K miles and all those mods? Look for close to $10k.

Damn! What's up with that? Talk about tacky.

No wonder they're selling it. They must have stared at the body kit for 15 minutes and thought, "What have I done?"

That's not a Pontiac, right Vipes? It has no cladding! Where's the cladding?

All that work and the engine looks like that:puke:

That's why they call it rice... the first rule of ricce is to not do anything mechanical but claim the car's putting out 40 more HP than stock because of a $h!ty cold air intake that has a 90* bend in the middle. :rolleyes:

Don't forget the fart can tailpipe...an extra 25 hp there...and some yellow paint somewhere---a single yellow wiper or yellow stripes... 'cause yellow means FAST.. :)

Moltar:

I love yellow on certain Camaros, Vetes or Mopars... a yellow Solstice perhaps... btu I totally know what you're saying. A yellow car wiht yellow rims, yellow mesh-grille, yellow antena and windshield wipers is just gross.

Around my neck of the woods Mopar "Sublime" seems to be showing up on Civics, Subarus, Corollas & Escorts at an alarming rate.

Meh. Myself, if I saw a great deal on a 5-speed Alero instead of a Grand Am, I wouldn't pass it up. You're talking 90% the same exact car.

Styling is the key... It's one of the bigger reasons that I'm even considering one at the moment.

Grand Am and Alero share doors. One reason for the wide, ribbed moldings on Grand Am doors... to hide the two ribs stamped into the sheetmetal. It looks especially funny on a 2 door Grand Am with no side moldings because the door has the Alero ribs, but the quarter is flat as a pancake ahead of the wheel.

Yes I noticed that also when the first cracked up GA showed up at our Chevy dealer in 1999. I think it's inevidable that someone out there will make a "Alero Am" or "Grand Alero" inthe fashion of the 3rd gen. Firebird with a Camaro ass that was in C&D years ago. It's a pretty straightorward "modification".

You guys are talking about de-cladding the recent Grand Am when the (wasn't it) '03 - '05 Grand Am didn't feature cladding because... ?

The only thing I'm thinking of is cost right now.

I'm guessing Pontiac was trying to clean up their act after years of criticism over the cladding...and the Alero was on it's way out then.
