    Congratulations to bhunter0830 on his July COTM win as well as being chosen for the COTY 2013!!


    First of all, thank you to those who voted.

    I have 2000 Trans Am that I have owned now for two years. When I was in high school I had a friend who owned a 98 Trans Am. I always wanted one but couldn't convince my parents to let me get one... So if you can't get a Trans Am, you end up with a Grand Am when your 18... All of you know that is not anywhere close to the same.

    After spending years and I mean years of looking for the right one I found this one in Northern Michigan. With my career I travel all over Michigan. I was on my way to an appointment in Petoskey. It was pouring down rain when I drove by. I told myself, if it was not raining when I got back to Traverse City I'll stop and take a look at it. Sure enough the sky cleared and I stopped and took it for a drive. Had 84,000 miles, 1 owner and unmolested. Wasn't perfect by any means, but it just seemed right. He was asking $7500 for it. As good as that sounds, I was not paying that price. I offered him $5000 cash, after a few moments of going back and forth I hung my head, got back in my truck and drove home. I literally pulled in my drive way when he called me and told me if I could get $500 more it was mine. Jumped in my truck and drove the hour and twenty minute drive back, and drove it home that night.

    Issue with car starting

    I turned the key to aux and didn't notice a sound. Strangely, every time I've tried to start the car, my the 12 disc changer in the back starts running

    Thanks for the info. I still intend to get my hands on a scanner to check the codes. How do you mean vibration related?

    I have been cursing Photobucket for destroying our tech threads. Bastards.
