I'm 16 years old and this is my first car(It's a pretty nice first car). I purchased it at a bargain price, only $1,200 Cdn. It's up there in mil... Show moreeage, with 205,000 kms, but the engine runs solid and the previous owner had a new clutch put in about a year ago(shifts real smooth). New ball joints had to be replaced recently as soon as I bought it at a price of $800.00 Cdn. The entire car as you see in the pictures cost only $3,100. It's a great combination of performance, appearance, and gas mileage. Especially for a 16 year old on a budget. Comments are appreciated!

I modified/customized the 3rd brake light to shine "GT" whenever the brake is pressed. It's pretty sweet looking, but it took about 2-3 hours to do. If anyone is interested in how to do it, just leave a comment, and I'll try to find the URL to the site I got directions from.

Vibrant Performance cold air intake is easily visible.
Pacesetter ceramic coated headers. They're a very tight fit.
The dual exhaust system on this sunfire features 2 "red devil" low restrictive mufflers(they're basically bottles and are pretty loud). It's hard to find a good sounding 4 cylinder IMO, as most of them sound like vacum cleaners, or bumble bees in a can, or whatever else you want to call it. Personally, I hate this sound. But fortunately for my car, the combination of mufflers and exhaust tips has resulted in a throaty, grumbly sort of tone. It's obviously nowhere near the pleasing sound of a V8, but it could be mistaken as a 6.
Two "oval-square" chrome exhaust tips at $85 a piece!
I don't really like the idea of painting plastic pieces in the interior for a radical contrast to the primary colour of the interior. The interior in my car is the colour "graphite". I decided to paint a few plastic pieces in my interior a "metallic graphite". It may be tought to see in the pictures, but in real life it provides a nice appearance to the interior, without contrasting, and is quite subtle.
Padding for seatbelts. Very cheap at Canadian Tire.

All of the speakers in my car are "hidden speakers". They are hidden behind the two front door panels, and the rear shelf of the back seat.
Infinity 4 x 6 front speakers
Panasonic 6 x 9 rear speakers
