Bought this 2007 yesterday

I bought this 2007 9c1 yesterday at a auction. It is freshly retired from the sheriffs office because of the accident. Paid $725. for it. I put a lower control arm and a inner tie rod end on it and drove it home. Car runs great and turned 141k 27 miles ago. Everything works and a/c blows cold.s777.photobucket.com

Don't forget to clean all the drugs out they lost in there so you don't get caught with them. That would suck!

Already replaced the fender and bumper cover. Still need the headlight. I have to repair the hood also. The car runs great though.

This is how I would like to move into the 8th gen's, or any car for that matter! A nice car that I can learn to fix and get to know better than I usually would. I'm so scared to touch my "04 because I got it in such good condition!

I trust myself but I'm still frightened I might ruin something!

I can't wait to see 'er all fixed up!

This is the 3rd 9c1 impala I have bought at the auction. The first is the 2010 in my avatar. I got it for $475. It was hit just about like the 2007 but on the opposite side. Last time the go pull a part had a all you can carry sale I grabbed 2 fenders with liners,a front bumper cover, a trunk lid, a maf sensor and a set of taillights. So I have some parts on hand that I need. I think monday I am going to buy another bumper cover for the 07. The one I have has fog lights in it and I need one for a base model. Spent yesterday removing the glue left from the police markings and cleaning the inside. Even scrubbed the rubber floor mat. It came out nice. I straightened the hood today so should be able to do my paint work on tuesday. I took the car on a short ride again and am very pleased with the car. Will post some more pictures tomorrow and later this coming week as I get everything done.
