Well I dont own this car anymore, I sold it to my younger brother (his screename is Steve00SES or something like that). I bought it brand new in May of 2000. Within a couple months I put the tint on & bought the wheels. I ran that spring/summer with the stock springs until I found out that Roush had their Taurus springs on clearance, so I picked up a set for $90 shipped. I also went through a couple different subwoofer setups when I owned it, each time of course going bigger. :p I do miss the car, and the looks that it got, but I wanted something a little faster and a manual tranny for my daily driver. It is in very good hands, as my brother always liked it, and he babies it more than even I did. Anyways, here's some pics, some of which I'm sure alot of you have already seen.

We're just all in denial that this car is not being pimped anymore.

:(

Its now slightly de-pimped because the wheels are off for the season, so back to stockers. However, my bro got in a small fender bender and the hood & bumper got replaced, so the front end looks brand new - no more rock chips.

Dont worry its in good hands. My bro comes to me with car advice, so I'll make sure it is on the road for a long time to come. He's getting the windshield re-tinted this week and next spring we plan on replacing the struts and finally figuring the negative camber out.
