New Here

Hey Im Nathan. Im 19 and tomorrow I sign the papers for my 2004 Grand Am GT. I assume its an SC/T. Info on what an SC/T is would help me . I work full time at a GM Dealership in the Body Shop, so this car already gets alot of physical mods, just not applied. I own several other cars also and am a huge gearhead. Anyways I took some pics after cleaning it up and hand polishing the wheels.

The SC/T model Grand Am is just a regular GT w/ a different hood and different spoiler. None of the mods that were supposed to go into the "production" models were actually installed (i.e.: turbo sway bars, etc.)

Anyway..

and the SEARCH button is you friend...

So mine is an SC/T?? I like these wheels, I am not a fan of the fan blade looking ones. I've been reading on here the last week or so while I was test driving the car, I just couldnt really find what exactly SC/T meant. I've got lots of plans for this car. My truck was my first real Custom car, lots of metal work done by myself. I love this car. I couldnt let pass it up, so Im buying it haha.

My Cougar is what Im trying to finish and my truck has a bad habit of breaking down(146,000 miles do that in). This is the DD for now, but it will get PLENTY of attention.


I have seen the lip on a few cars. I LOVE YOUR WHEELS!!! Those are the Grand Prix GXP wheels?? or are those Solstice wheels?

BTW I love the quick response time you have here haha. Not many forums are like that.

Its just the SC/T package....GM made a Grand Am SC/T concept car, with supercharger and SC/T hood and spoiler, lower side skirts, front chin spoiler and rear bumper extenstion.
Only thing that your car has is the SC/T Hood and spoiler so Its called GT1.
My car was just a plain 2002 Grand Am GT now I have the SC/T hood and spoiler.

Oh I think SC/T means Super Car/ Touring

Alright haha. Finally to clear up that confusion. I read up on the SC/T concept car. I'll keep with the GT1 . I have some custom paint ideas for the hood and spoiler. Fusion Orange on the Midnight Black should look pretty good I think.

Thanks for the link to exhaust clips.

Well I can deal with coming up with performance Ideas. If I can manage to keep my truck without having to sell it to pay off the GT I plan to Twin Turbo the 4.3L.

Im used to the post whore thing. Im on about 5 forum sites for my various cars. Ive got 6 more project cars sitting around. My dads 70 Chevelle is by far my favorite.

I'll find some wheels sooner or later. I like the Eagle 077s but I dare to be different. I'll stick with stock for awhile though. This car is just amazingly nice and it has the performance to match my truck which I love.

Yeah....my Cougar looks nothing like that. Its an 84. Fox Body Style. It is in immaculate shape, just that 5.0 needs to push some more ponies to really get up and go like the Stangs do. I love the fact that its based off of the Stang platform but has the luxury of a Lincoln. I'll post what pics I have of it, which are few. I keep it in the garage at the moment because of winter.

Posted pics of the Sonoma and Cougar there. The S10 wheels in the one pic I borrowed off of an S10 the dealer had. I really need to get in the engine bay and remove the smog pump and alot of that wiring on the Cougar. The truck and Cougar are on hold for awhile til I pay off a good chunk of the GT. The truck just needs the tail pipes bent and installed and a few odds and ends like brake pads. I am still planning on shaving the tailgate, just have been working on my custom hood for it, and my cousins mini chopper too much. We need a fabrication sub forum. I have lots of metal working projects going on.
