History
My dad bought this brand new in 1999 in Saratoga Springs, NY when we lived there at the time. When it had 155,000 on the odometer, this became my first car in high school and got me through college. I drove it daily from 2005-2015, and its been quite a few places over the years. She’s been to the Outer Banks (x2), Daytona Beach, Disney World, Miami Beach, and Fort Lauderdale.

After I bought my current daily (the 2010 coupe), I gave this one back to my dad to use as a winter car. I still drive it from time to time for various reasons, and for the nostalgia too. My dad returned the car to a stock configuration.

The main garage picture is how she looks today, and the ones below it are from the good ‘ol days.

Modifications

Drivetrain
None.

Engine and transmission were replaced with used units right around the same time, for unrelated issues. The used engine and transmission have roughly 150,000 miles on each, and the chassis itself has 295,000 miles (as of 12/2018).
Interior
None
Exterior
-OEM rear spoiler

-Smoked tails with VHT Nightshades. I did this 10 years ago when I was 18. Aside from the ridiculous looking reverse lights, it turned out pretty well. Paint has faded over the years however.

-Aftermarket amber foglights with OEM wiring

-Profesionally installed window tint 20 front / 5 rear (removed)

-OEM Splash guard set

-OEM Exhaust Tip
