I've got a 97, that's still in the same generation as what you have.

This is my second 97, my first one I bought used in August of 2000. It was a 97 SE Sedan with the 2.4 TwinCam and Automatic.

I got it with 32k miles, and put a total of 117k on it. Unfortunately, I lent it to a family member and it was totalled.. :(

I then bought another 97 afterwards because I figured I could use my other one for parts before I junked it. Now I have a 97 GT Sedan. (same engine / transmission)

Great cars...

*welcome*

There's a few of us older GA owners here, like 3 lol

Unfortunately there are very few aftermarket parts for the 92-95 Grand Ams. It's one of those "if you want, fabricate it yourself" kinda deals.

Luckily there are some basic parts around... Eibach and Intrax both make lowering springs, there are a couple bodykits, and depending on what engine you have there are some performance goodies. Anything in particular you are looking for?

Suspended license? :doh: How'd you manage that?

no i got 2 tickets in a 2 year period and the law here is you can only get one ticket every 2 years or its suspended for thee months. i got onr for not stopping completley at a stop sign. and the other for doing 87 in a 65. :hang:

thanks for the info about the parts for older cars. now i got three months to seve up for part since i dont have to pay gas/insurance.

96-98 GA guys are the old-school too!

Same frame... heh.

I wonder why they would have made changes for only 3 years of production?

Hey Amy Joe, you might want to consider getting a lawyer, they can usually get you off the ticket.

If you pay it, your admitting guilt.

Ouch... in PA they use a point system. My second offense within a year was also a 87 in a 65... was caught by airplane. owned: The points I got forced me to take the "special point drivers exam." Fail it or don't take it = suspension.

Oh, just remembered... speedhut.com has EL glow gauge overlays. In addition, if we get more people to pre-order, they'll make matching HVAC and fog/dimmer panel overlays too. Here: http://www.speedhut.com/15orders_el_detail.asp?auto_number=60&bhcp=1
;)

Other parts are kinda scattered around the net... if you are looking for something specific just PM me... I've collected links for all the parts I found in the last 5 years in the 92-95 scene. :boogie:

Much cheaper to do a facelift than an entire redesign. I think 7 years of the same exact design would have been a bit long. Than again, the L-body's (Beretta/Corsica) pulled it off well.

you must got those two tickets within a 90 day period of time right? or did you serve court supervision on your first ticket?

yeh i already payed my tickets. i can get a lawyer and get it back into court and pay a little more to get them off of my record. i have to go to three classes for being a better driver. all together this is going to cost just a little under $500.
thank god im still 17, cuz daddys paying for all of it.

no i got 2 tickets in under 24 months. if i would have payed the extra money then the first one would have been whiped off of my record but i didnt know that at the time. so now im screwed paying a lot more then 40 bucks

You can buy/sell things right from this site. Unless it's a certain companies body kit. If it is you can still make deals through PM's. ;)
