Hello All!...

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!
