Got the 04 home

Hi there - Thank you for having me in your forum having some tough days with my 95 year old dad that said he got me into cars in 50's/60's always stuck with me. Anyway I have been looking at Lightings for a long time finally got the one I wanted home today. An 04 silver with only 12,108 kms on the clock what a fun ride from Hamilton to Parry Sound. It is 3049 of 3781 built for 04really excited so clean owned by a 89 year old. I am so excited want to meet up with some Lightning folks or if there is a meet somewhere. Will post some pics when I can cheers tim

Hi there, Thank you for your kind comments is a fun ride for a modern vehicle. Even though it has low kms plan on driving it. I would plan on Arthur for the Sunday but again with my dad it's a crap shoot each day now. This think still has the tape on the frame from factory something else. May have to hit some of you guys up for info from time to time like I would like to do my own diagnostics with a OBD2 although I have no experience wonder how difficult this is. I'll post some pics soon our daughter is coming over today to take them & post them in a file cheers tim

Nice looking ride, you'll enjoy it. I just got rid of my '04, had it for 8 years and enjoyed the drive when I could.
