I got mine in July of 2008, after my IROC got wrecked by a drunk driver.

I bought it with 27k on the odometer. She's sitting with 112,168 miles now (exact number because I don't drive it through winters anymore).

The blower went on around 37k miles, and I lowered it around 60k miles.

Brakes are next on my list, and probably will pull the engine to go full forged and throw a lot more power at it, but there's no set timeframe for any of that.

sorry about the IROC, but it sounds and looks like you have put a lot of time and miles on it. its truly amazing what these cars can turn into with some TLC and some mods lol.

I bought my silver 2006 lt coupe just after returning from my trip to Arizona from Colorado. I had a 2001 honda civic which was my first car and the transmission started going out on it (among a bunch of other problems with it) so I decided to trade it it when the check engine light turned off. I went to go look at a mazda 3 1st gen but it was pricey so the guy showed me the cobalt and I test drove it and fell in love with it. had it for almost two years and then traded it in multiple times but eventually ended up with my current 09 SS that I love and have only had for a month : )

Showoff thread finally!!!! : )

I have had mine for 8 years, 71k miles on it. I got it when I was basically paying more than making in bills. I drove for Pizza Hut, with topper and all for years while going to school.

I drove it into a tree and had to have it fixed, got a custom paint job and bondo on it, so in a way I regret going with the guy I did. Now I plan to put on a 3 inch exhaust and a throttle. I also plan to either fix or replace the back quarter panel and get the car repainted.

Don't know if it counts, bought my 07 SC 6 months ago, with just over 41k on it and now have near 45k.

Since I've owned it replaced brake system, struts, strut mounts, strut bushings, shocks, and sway bar end links. Next will be fuel lines, filler neck, and gas tank straps. Only reason was because car was originally from up north most it's life.
