    Has it really been 8-1/2 years? -- Pics

    Zaino'd car and just needed to post up a few odd pics. Nothing dramatic like some cool urban setting ... unless you consider South Lyon an "urban" setting. Just hard to believe I took delivery on Jan 21, '05.


    At local golf course:





    Looking out toward main street:




    At home:




    No, I know what you're thinking, lollygagger8 ... this isn't a nursing home:

    Thanks, guys, for indulging me. Nothing like Zaino, no snow, and a garage for keeping paint looking better longer. Plus, it's always a struggle between wanting to preserve a car versus just using it and enjoying it. With 67k on the clock, I've managed to be somewhere between those two extremes. Had a GTO, a Vette, three SHOs, plus several "normal" ones but this is the best car especially with the supercharger and headers.

    A few of us on here got the wheels through wheeldude a couple of years ago. They should've made a few more sets, IMHO.

    Randy's car is the benchmark for a tastefully modified V. No crazy stuff. Great drivability and proven parts. The next guy to own Randy's car will get a nice ride.

    Randy are those 19" wheels and what size tires are you running? They looks a little taller than stock overall but it might just be the pics. I like it.

    I never did blaze any mod trails. Always been a follower, not a leader.

    Tires are Pilot Super Sports, 245/40-19 front and 275/35-19 rear. Car is lowered approx 3/4".


    Thanks, Cadzilla8. My DD is a Chevy Cruze ECO. With the block M, it reads "MY ECO." Before that, I had "MYXTYPE" on an '04 Jaguar. Not too clever, really, just fun.


    Like to see more picture threads from the rest of you guys. C'mon ... show your pride!

    My hats off to you Randy! I'm also getting up there in yrs and these cars sure bring some vitality to the old bones. Very nice care you have shown the lady over these 8 1/2 yrs.

    As they say, you're only as old as you think you are, and I still think AND feel like I'm in my early 30s. This car helps.

    Thanks, stranger. You must be busy making those GM cars even better. I go on gminsidenews.com quite frequently, and there's a lot of exciting stuff happening there. Hope you have time to relish the good times to come.

    Yes I've been extremely busy launching the new full size pick up trucks.
    I'm actually in the plant right now supporting 3rd shift production. One day I'll get to live a normal life again!
