[QUOTEThe tires, albeit old, are also like new Dunlop Sport tires that still have the nubs on them. Car was stored in a heated storage garage and the tires show absolutely no signs of weather checking or cracking.... and therefore I am going to continue to drive on them until they give me reason not to. They felt fine on the drive home.][/QUOTE]

I would consider replacements. The ones on my 95 looked great also but were old. I replaced them myself and it was interesting to see all the little cracks come out on the sidewalls when I broke the beads on the tire machine.
Good luck with the vert

Whereabouts are you located? I'm in Stanwood.

Tires are certainly on the list, just not a critical item at the moment. I will run them while I am fixing it up and get to them eventually.

I do have this weekend off thankfully and will be diving into the codes amongst other things.

Judging from your wheels you have the Z52 package with some suspension and cooling goodies if your RPO sheet has GM1=2.59
GU2=2.73

NIce ride. Hopefully the price will continue to be a "good Deal" 6 months down the road. You'll have to post up some pictures when you get done with the clay bar and detail.

Welcome to selling online. Lots of interest, few folks who actually come thru, I've got a fairly strict no holding any longer than it takes you to drive to me policy as such. All that matters is that you are happy with the purchase, if so it was a great deal

The Jiffy lube oil sticker is still ledgible in the windshield and it was due for an oil change in 2006, but is still about 1000 miles away from the posted 3000 mile change.

That's just right up the road! I don't get out to Stevens very often, but there are a few wrecking yards in Granite that I frequent.

Do you know the RPO codes yet? Just curious if you have the .2.59 gear or 2.73 etc.
Here is a list of the RPO Codes....

AC1 AC3 AQ9 BGR B4P C68 DL8 D7C D74 D9A E5Z E9Z FG3
GU2 KC4 K68 L98 MD8 MX0 NA5 QA1 UQ4 UU8 V01 V73 ZAU
YAU Z52 19I 19T 192 199 41U

I'm sure you guys probably know more about what they mean than I do.

If those 10 yr old tires blow out while driving, you're going to wish you spent the $400-$600 on a set of tires. The damage that can happen.......

A 6spd vert that runs for 2500 is an AMAZING deal!

Cool car - not much else to say there. One thing I will point out. The aftermarket stereo is a McIntosh! I have never seen one like that, but McIntosh is one of the best car audio brands there is. Do some research on that piece because it might be very valuable.

I posted that picture because of the fact it is a McIntosh deck. It works fantastic, has a big Rockford Fosgate 4 channel amp, and Fosgate Punch speakers all the way around. This thing does rock!!

Not overly valuable though, the most recent ones on eBay sold for around $150.
