08 midnight blue gxp.
Bought it with 23k last year sometime.
Now has 42k on the dash. I had a mishap when I installed my ls6 intake so I had a local shop pull the engine and recondition it. Hasn't run but maybe 50 miles since then. Been daily driving a 95 thunderturd to get me through the winter months. Gxp sits under a tarp in the garage for now.

-07 Grand Prix GXP
-Unknown, I assume it's stock so 115,000.
-Water pump started leaking 2 days after buying, turn signal switch started flashing cops @ 3 days. Luckily no tranny work yet.
-Something with 5+ speed manual N/A or Supercharged RWD V8 or Supercharged/Turbo RWD V6. Preferably American made and still in business and not a Ford. But I'd settle for a twin turbo Lexus IS F...

Mine is a little odd...

-Year/Model - 2007 LS4 installed in 1988 Pontiac Fiero
-Miles @ Purchase/Current - 17K miles and have put about 10K on it since the swap.
-Transmission Count - 1, but I installed a F40 6 speed manual during the swap.
-Mentionable Repairs - 1 coil went bad, replaced the water pump and rebuilt the alternator for piece of mine.
-Next Car? - probably another fiero or two, but also looking for a 2002+ Range Rover with a bad engine to do an LS(x) drivetrain swap into for my family vehicle. My girls are getting to big for the rear of the 97 full-size extended cab Chevy truck.

2008 impala ss

17k/93k(i drive all over ohio for work and family)
trans went at 83k, still on second one.
most major repair besides trans was prob only wheel hubs both sides
next care would probably be the chevy ss or new impala ss

-Next Car?

So here's the first one!...

2006 Impala SS
Tranny Rebuilt @ 80k

1.) Steering creak/crunk when turning, from steering column under hood. What is that?

2.) Salt rotted mufflers. WOW WOW WOW stock mufflers are QUIET. Mine must have had holes when bought because it was never dead *** quiet.

-Probably Focus Titanium, Fusion V6 AWD, 200 Limited, or '13 Taurus SHO. (LOL I work at a Ford/Chrysler store.)

Ready Set Go!
2006 monte carlo SS.
42K Miles
0 transmissions under warranty for an additional 100k miles
steering noise your hearing is the intermediate steering shift. Impala/monte carlo are notorious for them. GM bailed on the recall because every car has the issue. And that was my most expensive repair so far. $230

2006 GXP
142,xxx/143,xxx (I am the 3rd owner
I dont know but i highly doubt it is the first. There is no slipping at all and it shifts really nice.

I am wanting to keep the GXP but I might get a second car in the future. I really wanted a WS6 but settled for the gxp. So a 98-02 T/A ws6 or formula ws6 is my goal. Must have t-tops and a 6 speed

130,000 miles. Only issue was the usual 4 plugs fouled out at 110,000 miles. Oil use does not bother me as I know the oil is always fresh LOL. Have replaced front tires a couple times but rear tires still going strong. Only FWD car I've ever owned that doesn't cup the rear tires from lack of rotation.

2005 GXP
86,768 miles bought 3-5-14 103,849 as of 12-30-14
Just did the harmonic balancer, idle tensioner pulley, and power steering pump for $890
I've only put on a K&N intake and Hamburger's throttle body spacer thus far, but planning on ported intake, rocker arms, catless dp, and magnaflow with a tune.
Next car? Not sure... Thinking ATS coupe turbo when the time comes.

Default Mileage

2008 Buick Lacrosse Super
58K/120K Mileage

Wheel hub,front brake rotors X3,original trans changed fluid when I bought it and at 100K, those were the only repairs.

Changes are DT headers, 3 inch exhaust, K&N CAI, tune by Cincy Speed. 20 inch wheels and tires note bought these BEFORE I went to the drag strip. They look nice but are super heavy. 265WHP 302 Torque was the dyno results.

Keep as long as I can I love the car. With the miles I am putting on it who knows how long it will last....
