Got a first gen XL over the weekend

My STX build got side lined when someone pulled out in front of me. Now it is a total teardown type build. So until I can get to that I picked up this XL to get me by. It is in pretty good shape. It did 80 down the interstate like a champ. It does not need much to be a nice daily driver. A little lipstick and rouge and some maintenance is all I really have to do. I think the first thing I will do is replace the muffle. That V8 sound is getting annoying.

I am rather fond of the 2.9 that is in. however, my STX might need one.

I agree. I put it on the lift the other day and everything underneath looks good as well.
