Finally got a new car...

Well after doing a month of searching on-line, it took a trip back home to find my new car sitting along the road...an 02 SVT!!! I basically used my insurance check to pay for this thing, so I pretty much swapped out my old auto zx3 for this. Apparently it was in a front end collision, and my Dad was really skeptical when I told him about it. But after checking it out from top to bottom he was pretty satisfied. The damage was pretty minor and the bumper, hood, and right fender were replaced. Only thing is the front bumper is from a zx3, so ill have to wait until summer to replace it with an svt one or maybe a rouche one.

Then he and I drove it and were sold. Oh man this thing blows my old car out of the water. My dad had a huge ass grin on his face as he was driving it. Then I jumped behind the wheel, and man there is no comparison to my old car. So anyways I'm just waiting to get the insurance all straightened out before I'll drive it home. I'll get pics hopefully before the end of the week. I'm seriously so f'n excited after test driving it to actually have it back here!

I know exactly what you mean. It just felt more solid than my old car. It ran amazing, the exhaust sounds awesome. Not sure if there is a hi-flo or an orp on there cause it sounds a little louder than stock.

The zx3 front is kind of out of place, he put some mesh in there and just looks kinda goofy but it can wait until summer to get replaced. All I care is that it is an SVT underneath!

SVTs are kinda loud from a cold start. Try listening to one with an ORP and a three inch exhaust.....lol
