I'll throw mine in.....


01 Sable Wagon Premium, Duratec


I bought the wagon to replace my wife's Saturn wagon cause we needed more space. Space we got! I picked it up for $1400 and have done a bunch of work to it since it was in my driveway in June of 2011. So far I have replaced the coil, plugs/wires, UIM/LIM gaskets, a few vacuum lines, PCV/PCV hoses, front/rear brake pads and rotors, 3rd cat, 2 o2 sensors, and typical routine maintenance items.

This is how she looked when she came home...



Then I took the Tbird Sport rims I had on my Tbird and put them on the wagon with 225 60R16's on them




After that I put the stock rims back on it and started tinting the rear windows. I never completed that yet with winter set in and no garage to do it in.....



Finally setteled on getting rid of the black Tbird rims, and painted them silver and I'm sticking with that. I might sand them back out and go gunmetal in the spring but I'm not quite sure yet. This picture I took down the road from my house just after Hurricane Sandy right by the water. This area was under water during the storm......... we lucked out.



(^^ Entry Photo)

She's been put to work many times




Cant do that with a sedan! ^^


I'm in process of fixing the lovely door panels now . I have a few things to do to it but she's been a trooper! I used her to drive the family to NC for vacation, as well as dropping the seats and loading it up with stuff to take to the recycling center as well as trips to home depot for doors in my house. A true all purpose vehicle without being a gas guzzeling truck or a van.

SHOW YOUR LOVE FOR A WAGON!! You know you want to

My first mod, blue fog lights
Next was a police interceptor badge and license plate covers

I painted the rocker cover red, thinking of cleaning it off, masking off the 3.0 and painting the cover blue and polising the 3.0L, I have already removed the intake silencer and added a small screen to the bottom of the air box and a k&N filter

Next was a Sony Xplod deck, mainly because of the tray inside to hold an ipod or usb device and 2- 10" Jensen subwoofers with 2- 500W amps, a memphis and a phoenix gold.

- Voting picture


COMING SOON! - Straight pipe exhaust, 17" Konig monsoon rims with lo'pro tires (Possibly), Lowering springs, billet grille, Tinted windows and much more that i cant remember!

Seeing as there aren't any of the newest Generation of bull represented for this month as of yet, I will submit mine for January 2013.

Admin / Mod's, feel free to select w/e image you feel would be best suited for the actual "voting" picture. I'll yield to your discretion on that.

Good luck to all of this month's COTM entrants.















Addt'l information, pics, mods performed, etc. etc. can be found by visiting the "My Garage" tab located on the left of my post, under my avatar.

Thanks for viewing
