    Your Current Car:
    02' Pontiac Montana short wheelbase

    Color:
    Dark Red, but really not red...

    Odometer Reads:
    30,000+ Miles

    Purchase Price:
    $2,901.... eBay auction.... hit hard in the nose, 23k… Drove out to the Bronx to look at it the day of auction…. Bid on it from my carputer…. Walked in 5 minutes later & told the guy I was the winner…. He couldn’t figure out how the hell I did thatJ

    Fixed Problems:
    Restored front body... GM new: nose, windshield, airbags, suspension...etc.... removed entire interior including the dashboard for dynamat & soundproofing/ thermal wrap… re-assembled to not be a plastic rattlebox…

    Remaining Problems:
    Systems need to be finished & finishing custom panels... needs oil changed real bad…

    What have you bought for it? (Exclude carputer)
    I bought this truck cheap. But have put a lot of money into it... I was looking for a $25,000 car & everything I could have got for $25,000 would have needed another $10,000+ in electronics & upgrades at least....

    This truck after collision repair was around $7,000... but then I put over $13,000 into customizing... (Not including the Pentium m liquid cooled carputer)


    04 factory grand prix 17" chrome’s w/Michelin mxv4’s...custom color keyed cladding & bumpers.... xenon headlights...custom aluminum mesh grilles...custom chrome "Montana XP" emblems.... custom katzkin leather 2-tone interior with special order perforated inserts & embroidery...rear seats stretched back, converted to 2+2 seating...suede headliner & upper trim...alpine iva-d300 touch screen head unit modified flush mount non-retracting.... alpine pxa-h700 processor.... alpine DVD navigation.... 2 McIntosh amps (one is the mc4000… big sucker).... illusion audio compression drivers(these horns kick ***)...10" illusion audio ND-10's in the doors(ditto)... 2 Illusion audio 15” ND-15’s for the rear(not in yet)… 250 amp Leztek chrome dual output alternator(not in yet)… a few optima yellow tops… many rolls of dynamat & sound proofing......icon 15" drop down screen for the rear, with ps2 & game cube in custom center console... spread spectrum 2-way security system… Sony 1/3” superHad rearview camera 480 res. W/ night vision & alpine tme-580 monitor overhead… Bluetooth hands free kit for cell… 5% limo tint all around…



    Future Plans:
    Install rear sub’s… finish & button up misc. loose ends, … then start looking it either turbo or supercharger or engine swap… need more power… add more cameras for parking at night... window tint too dark

    Why did you buy it?

    I looked at a lot of vehicles with installation of equipment as primary concern, didn’t want flash or bling, this fit the bill plus left a huge budget for customizing…

    What do you like the most about your car?

    Rides like a Mercedes, sounds like a concert hall & is low key… there is nothing lacking in this vehicle besides maybe 300+ horsepower…

    What do you dislike about your car?

    Needs more power…

    Previous and other cars:
    This would be it’s own thread…

    Possible Future Cars:
    ??????…. a Ferrari… or a Lamborghini… when does that mid-life crisis start again??? I got a few years yet…
