Default New Proud Owner 1996 Coupe LT1, Burning Hot Torch Red

I finally got it and luv it: 1996 LT1, automatic O/D trans, stainless Magnaflow mufflers, leather seats, stock Delco Bose Gold Series stereo fully functioning, heat deflecting ceramic tint all around (clear on windshield), everything else fully functioning, just under 60,000 miles! (Sorry for the messy black obliteration job on rear plate, can't be too careful nowadays)

Nice ride.. the Mrs. Almost bought that exact same car a little while ago.

It sure looked pretty sitting there. The black windows were a great contrast.

If they wouldn't have sold it so quick, it would probably be sitting out back right now.

Looks pretty good.
I don't know what laws affect tinting out there, but I believe it's too dark to be legal here.

You're correct about the tinted side windows and it being a "Fix It Ticket." The former owner tinted them. I'm thinking of removing it since I want better vision looking thru them at night. PLUS, I want to be seen in my red hot car!

had the same POS exhaust on my CE LT4. both muffler brackets tore off. the SS muffler body is tissue paper thin, truly TISSUE PAPER THIN. tossed mufflers in the garbage. replaced with steel Magnaflow "LT 1" style mufflers, leaving the 3 inch ss center section .after a little over a year no problems so far. good luck with the new car.

I'm hoping for better luck and also for better quality installation with these Magnaflows that came with the car. However, thanks for the warning.

I paid the seller the answer to this subtraction question: $64,269.00 minus $52,469.00 I figured if you really must know, you'll do the math.

Are you serious? Are you really this rude in real life too? Guy comes on to show off his new Vette that hes excited about, and the first thing you do is tell him that the exhaust (which he was excited enough about to list in the description) is a POS? What a nice guy, just being helpful right?

OP, the car looks great! Congrats! And magnaflow is a great brand, all products can have bad luck examples. Enjoy your new car!
