Used to drive a 2000 Buick Century (still have it), but I got a 2009 Chevy Silverado a month ago. Except for the crap gas mileage, I love the thing haha

This is actually my second starion at 22 years old, my first one was at 20 and looked like this:



How my second starion looked back in 2006 after a restoration and before it got in my hands:


What it looked like when I got it:






My license plates:


About 125k miles on the body. After I got it, it blew a headgasket which showed a cracked head and exhaust mani. Then after I fixed that the neutral safety switch went out (auto trans). After I fixed that I blew the motor (all my fault) spun the rod bearings. Built a new motor and have 500miles or so on it.

What the blown headgasket looked like:

Traded off my not-really-running project Grand Cherokee for this today:



1994 GMC Sierra 1500, pure stripper work truck. I'm loving it, it's got a 350 in the front, two drive wheels in the back, a quilted bench seat in between and NOTHING ELSE. Except a heater that could melt steel.
