Finally!!!!

Finally found a 1996 SS I can afford. Picked it up on Friday, only 77000 miles. Needs a little TLC but it's all stock and un-modified. Been wanting one for years, guess you could call it my dream car.

Right now just want to get the interior cleaned up and presentable. It needs a new drivers seat cover and the seat and back foam replaced. Carpet cleaned up nicely and the back seat is fine. There are some little thing that need attention but the engine, transmision and body are in great shape and the car runs very well. Looked on the "for sale" section but didn't see any seats for sale.

elkomike,

Congrats.


Now.......

Do me a favor man, post a close up pic of the rear wheel.

Dont want to alarm you just yet, but that second pic looks like drums are back there.

Hopefully I am wrong.

Welcome! Car looks awsome! Check for a WX3 Code on the SPID label on the underside of the trunklid. WX3= SS, more than likely. Sometimes clones are easy to spot, Hopefully yours is an SS.
