So far, this is what "my" car has turned into

I apologize for the bad pictures, but my bother only has a camera phone to take pictures with.

He's going to put 19" Falkens on the car:

And, he's deciding to go with a Procharger s/c instead of a turbo now. Looks like things are starting to roll. This will be a bad ass car when he's done. I'll take my digital cam down there and take some real pictures of it when I get a chance. But, I don't know when that's going to happen. A 400 mile trip to take pictures isn't very realistic right now.

I am afraid what my brother would have done to my car. Knowing him, he would likely do something totally off the wall just to teach me a lesson for giving up my car. Make no mistake, I fully understand why you gave your girl up, for you have a more important bundle of joy on the way, and still I salute you for putting your little one first. In my case, I thought I was loosing interest, and my brother, the jokester he is, would have made me suffer just show what I gave up.

So is that the GT-500 front clip on there? My eyes aren't as good as they used to be :eyepoppin

Some spinners and blue LEDs for sure.

Yeah it is. He said it cost $800 unpainted. Not sure how much the painting was, but he works with auto shops and such, so he got a deal. I'm sure he installed himself. Good thing he doesn't have to pay labor on any of the work he'll do.

Thanks for the kind words. I know I did the right thing. I'm guessing around the end of the year, when the Sebring is finally beyond repair, I'll look for a Saturn VUE for the family car, probably a used on. After that, I get my pick of the litter. I'll look into Mustangs again, but only time will tell if I can get one this soon. Maybe I'll find a good deal.

I'm sort of glad I didn't buy that spoiler off you now as my brother is going to go without one, as of now. And, it's good that stlwagon got some use out of it.

The more I see that GT-500 front-end, the more I like mine the way it is. I don't know what it is that bothers me about it.

If my brother had gotten ahold of my GT it would be 2 feet off the ground with a set of mudder tires on it. That would certainly be the end of this Pampered Pet.

'05 Sonic Blue GT w/ '07 V8 engine, 5-sp, IUP, Beige leather interior, nothing else -
just the way I wanted it. (1 of 113)
OK, so I've added a few things to it. Check my Profile - too many to list here.

True, my brother is into 4x4s...and he would love to see my face after such an "operation" transpired.

Has to be the goofy grin from the lower cutout. =) Me, I like top half, with its more aggressive slant, but the matching 'grin' from the lower cutout negates anything I like about it.

That must be it...I really like the lower fog lights and I like the more aggressive slant to the top half, but the 'grin' detracts from the rest sufficiently enough that I am keeping my front the way it is.

I like the Falken rims he has planned for it -- I think 19's look perfect on this vehicle!
