i am inheriting a 2000 Grand prix SE with the LG8 3.1 liter from my parents. our family has had this car for 16 years, bought in 2002. i plan on keeping this car as long as possible, it's one of those family cars that i do not plan on selling no matter what, rust included. it does have rocker panel rust like all the others, and i do need to attack that first. the lower intake gasket has not been changed, but the car only has 100,000 miles on it. for a car that year that is very low mileage. i figured i would join here and get more info about these cars that i haven't read yet.
