New daily! 95 Grand am
Monday, May 21, 2012 8:17 PM
So I blew up the cavy last week and was in need of another car for work ASAP and came across this 95 grand am se for $1300, The car has 156k on the odo and is in near mint condition on the outside and inside but ran sluggish so I took her home and done a few things. New plugs, wires, coils, fuel filter, oil change, fuel injector cleaning, and seafoam treatment and it runs awesome now! Threw my 00-02 z24 wheels on it for the hell of it. Anyways here are the pics.









This is what the cavy looks like now, Gonna throw another stock longblock in it and either sell it or keep it as the race car.

god older gm cars look so much better with our wheels on them.

berettas with 95-99 z wheels looks the best IMO.

Lower intake gasket is the ONLY major common issue with that motor. Fix that (if it needs it at all)and you have a solid, reliable DD. I don't see the issue. You're moving from driving a 2.2L 4 banger trash talking a V6, get real now lol.

Naw its a pretty stout motor but I wish it had the 2.3 quad in it. But like you said it's just a daily and that's fine.

At least if you ever wanted to v6 swap a 3rd gen, you have everything you need.

Thanks man, it looks even better in person. No dash cracks, rips, stains or anything! I want a stero system in the car seeing as it has the factory tape deck I might have to spend a lil cash for a complete setup lol. Well anyways here are a few more pics of the car.
