To match those sweet racing stripes, its going to need a hood scoop, twentys, lowering kit, neon lights, shaved door handles, and a phat exhaust.

thats not the actual photo of the car thats just an example. however the car i got is the exact same year as in the photo, same color, and has same style rims. the only thing it doesnt have is the stripes. i will actually be putting some subs in it, putting new headlights and tail lights in it, and possibly underglow. ill have to see how cheezy it will look..

my grandparents pitched in a k, as did my parents. so technically i didnt pay for all of it, but it only cost me a little over 3 grand!! im not complaining.

the best part is that because it is a chevy, insurance is way lower than almost any other car ive looked at it. it will only cost me around $60 a month! yay i cant emphasize how excited i am! i get my licence in a few weeks! then im going up north mt biking with my buddies!!!

Congrats AND condolences.......

Welcome to the expensive world of Car ownership, where you basically have a hole in the ground that you throw money into and never fill up (Kind of like a boat )

Truer words were never spoken. Damn, I hate me some cars and the money they cost.. ahh, well. They are a necessary evil for me, I guess. Every time I've gotta pay to fix something, I automatically think of the bikes and bike parts that could have been bought instead of car repairs.
