    Looks great. Red wagons are so hot. Keep this thing clean and simple like your plan and win all the internets.

    Nice. I assume your on stock suspension? Since its low km and looks 100%stock and well maintained.
    How does it compare to stock L susp. From your last car?

    I always thought the suspension in my 99 was a little high but really fun and responsive.
    Cars101.com says the GT's get fancy sport suspension.
    I've test driven a couple 2nd gen L's (looking for cheap cars) but never tested the suspension out.

    White 1999 Brighton wagon
    Only 53,000km!!!
    Auto, power everything(cause its a '99)
    Rust free! Clean, probly old ppl owned and kept in a garage 24/7
    So much potential
    $2200 safety and etested

    I found this a couple days ago
    Its in ottawa and sooo tempting

    If it was a 5spd I would have left work to look at it the day I found it
    I don't need or even want a 3rd automatic but this one is a gem.

    i find something kinda fishy with the milage...i wonder what the story is behind it...i know it is very easy to roll back especially when i swapped my cluster on my old car. if its an "out of province" car with no record then def reg flags...but yet again looking at the engine bay and body kinda see 53k being true.

    I dunno... that driver's side bolster is pretty crushed... more than I'd expect to see in 53,000 MILES, let alone a mere 53,000KM. I mean, mine were pretty trashed when I got my cars, but they weren't as bad as that, and I had near to 200,000 miles on two of them and 261,000 on the other.

    UPDATE:
    Well tonight i tackled a big project. I
    -Clay Bared
    -Glazed
    -Waxed
    (i know i really should have used rubbing compound but the results still turned out great)
    Pics are terrible and really don't do it justice like in person.
    Not bad for 15 year old paint

    The paint looks awesome, like It should be sitting in a showroom
    The antenna looks funny, On my 2nd gens I pulled the carpet back a bit and unplugged the antenna so it wouldn't go up
    It made a weird clicking noise when It went up and I hated the look of it.
    I did loose radio reception quality as a consequence but I never listened to radio back then anyways

    I still love those GT snowflake rims

    I love the yellow on red, I should do the FOZ's fogs yellow (since its finally all red)

    Not sure if you still have your purple car as a parts car but theres a guy in otawa looking for a rear hatch for a '96 wagon.
    You could make a couple bucks?
