Hello, I think I was part of grand prix club forums. Now that I am here. 2 lovely sisters below.

I had my beast '99 Grand Prix GT for 5 years before it crumbled to rust. I was so sad. I gave it away to some kid who used it in a derby. The rust was so bad underbody and you could put your fist inside of it. I took the backseats out for keepsake. (And turned it into a futon, haha)


I've had my '07 G6 GT Coupe for about 3 1/2 years. Aaaaaannndd... as of now, it only has 54,000 miles on it! Yeah I was fortunate enough to buy it off an used cars dealership @ 36,000 miles for only $11,000. For some reason a black 4 dr sedan with higher mileage was more. (Wasn't a fan of coupes and I guess it grew on me) And I did nothing to it until a month ago when I noticed the first sign of rust! Nope, I said. Nope, thats not going to happen. Because of its low mileage, and my passion for pontiacs, I wasn't going to give in. It'll be the last pontiac and I will invest into it so that it'll be my bunny for many years to come (I love bunnies so the back of the GT kinda looks like an evil bunny to me!) Is it me or G6 coupes are getting rarer these days?

So first thing I did was, of course, new wheels and tires. In a couple weeks I am addressing the scratches, chips, flaws and a nail length rust at a scratch buster company (who knows if they'll be good matching 10 year-old paint) I live in terrible upper state of New York. So rustproofing is my priority right now as winter is approaching.



I noticed some of you like to ask what are the plans in the future: Well....
The brakes are original and I definitely need to replace it- the rotor and all. Mechanics said good maybe a year.

Cold air intakes.

Then the headlights- one of them is getting hazzy of course. I looked at some of them on amazon but I did not like the extreme black housing, but I wouldn't like subtle either. I'd like something that'd be 'enough' to change its appearance. I think it's difficult to envision aftermarkets for a silver car- black/white easy, but silver? Maybe it's just me. Also do halos burst often? And that they require slicing of wires. I never bought aftermarket headlights before.

That's it so far.

So that's that! My story. Nice to meet you all.

Thank you all for your welcome! Ive done a couple things! New customs exhaust and new paint for front and back (deep scratches and some paint swap...) and as well the tiny weeny rust on quarter panel. I didn't want to throw in 4k for the whole paint job. I can see the paint difference. But I was expecting this since it is 10 year old paint. Would polishing the unpainted paint blend it better?
