    Hey all. I'm Travis. Just signed up tonight.

    I currently own a '99 STS (unfortunately suffers a head gasket issue so she's going bye bye soon) but will be replacing it with an '02 STS and and a 2000 Olds Intrigue. Loved the STS since my dad first got one in 2002.

    The '99 "Precious"


    The '02 I'm looking to get. Probably gonna name her Sapphire.

    Thanks! Loved her since my father first bought her with a little over 50K miles in 2002.

    I'm planning on removing the Corsa exhaust and putting it on the '02 then probably sell the '99 as-is (probably put the '02 exhaust on it so it has something [if possible]). She's not the same girl she used to be. Original engine had a crack in the block so my father replaced the engine in our garage. Now with 195K she's ready to go to a new loving owner. The passenger heated seat died, there's a relay that goes wonky and causes the gas gauge, power locks, trunk and gas release, and courtesy lights to not work, paint transfer on one mirror, the drivers mirror finish is worn off (so the mirror has a yellow tint to it), and the struts are now all passive.

    If it were me, I'd swap the wheels, too.
    I like the shiny chrome better.
