    Congrats to jiveass on his May COTM win

    Woohoo! This car was a surprise for my wife and I back in December 2010. Actually, she surprised me with it when she traded her 2001 eclipse and $2000 for this 1999 trans am. I immediately installed long tubes, poly mounts, and new wheels. 3 months later it spun a rod bearing while doing a nasty donut. It then sat for almost a year in the garage until I was ready to replace the engine. We had just bought a house, so saving money any way possible was a must. So instead of going back with the ls1, I opted for a low miles 5.3 from a 2004 Silverado. Since then, she has been running great and is currently my daily driver. Special thanks goes out to my wife Courtney, who made it all possible!
