It was on Craigslist, Ebay, Cars,com, Autotrader,com etc.

but yea, we live in Farmingville right now, soon to be back in Coram.

we saw it a month ago when we first started looking but we kinda wanted a white one, untill we saw this color in person and fell in love with it.

Nice! I got a white 03 EXT back in October for $14,000 with 70k miles. Let me know if u need any help with installs, i'm only a couple miles away! Some cool things you can do are watching dvd's from the factory navi, bluetooth through the onstar system, ipod connections, the possibilities are endless. Good luck!

I might be getting in touch with you soon bout the Nav Tool. Funny I was just reading your thread a half hour ago. I have the touch screen, it can still be done right?

Yea, mine is for a 03-04.... the same guy makes the nav tool for 05-06 lades. Its the same process im sure, just the RGB leads probably have a different wiring configuration.

Hi Betcha! Nice SS - what all have you done to it? What size motor, etc? Just wonderin cos I am an import car show guy and I respect both imports and muscle alike :) I love that deep growl of a muscle car and yet I love that blow-off-valve sound of a turbo import lol.

I asked because I noticed the skinny's in the front so I bet you "packin some heat" lol.

Oh hell yeah!! I bet that thing sounds bad ass with those cams. What kinda exhaust setup you got? My buddy has an El Camino that looks brand new with some cams and the idle on that thing is enough to scare people! Nothin like a big bad ass mucle car idle! What Whp/Tq you makin, if you do not mind me asking?
