Just found and bought a 2001 Grand Am GT Coupe, one owner, local, .....wait for it........29,098 miles!. This thing is in the wrapper!...always garaged, pristine! Hope I can find some good info here if needed. I've given it a very good look over, the preivious owner had just replaced serp. belt and all hoses, including AC lines. Rear speakers were dry rotted, and the first time I cranked up the Monsoon, they flew apart. Bought new ones on Amazon for 84 bucks a pair, and now they sound great. Every button in this car looks showroom new, and everything works. Engine bay clean as a whistle! Cheers~

$2500? That's a good deal. But these cars have the resale value of a rock.

Not really....just a daily driver I guess. I have an MX-5 for my weekend car. I may plastidip the wheels, as they are a pretty ugly chrome.

It doesn't take much money to pretty up a GAGT. When mine was still pretty:

Probably the mod I miss most: my 50/50 tinted 2nd gen LED tails. I was the only one with this look. Plus, envy my rally mudflaps! lol

This again makes me really annoyed my year was one of the years that didn't come with the Monsoon system -.-

For 11 years old, I was impressed with the stock sound system (after replacing the rears).... I know Im 44 years old, but I like to listen to artists like Deadmau5, Skrillex, etc... and this system can handle the low range nicely.

Monsoon sucks dude, be glad you don't have it to deal with...

That car is sooooo clean man. We have an ol' blue hair here with a white GAGT, I'm waiting for her to kick off so I can make a run at hers lol it's retarded-clean

Yep, It is clean...and I didn't do anything to it...this old couple was in thier 70's..but the old man knew how to take care of a care for sure. Don't look like its ever seen rain. Crazy.

I would jump another GA if I could find one like that, no doubt. They're just old enough now that usually their beat to death teenager mobiles

Damn. The coupe looks damn good.

Lurk craigslist for some wheels, and ditto on the debadging. The older GAGTs had WAY too many.
