No, it's not a GT. My oldest, Briley get her Driver's License in just 30 more days. The local Independent Bearing House owner is a friend of mine and he knew I had one getting reading to drive and that I was looking for an SUV for her. He called me a couple weeks ago and said he had something he thought would work, so I went to look at it and thought with some elbow grease it might be OK. Yesterday morning after dropping the girls off at school my wife and I went and picked it up with the intentions of working on it over the next few days and hiding it over at the neighbors place in the evenings to get it ready to surprise her with it all cleaned up. When we got home yesterday at 9:30AM, we started cleaning on it and seeing what all I had to repair. Before I knew it, we had spent all day and most of the evening since the girls had band practice until 9PM. We cleaned it from top to bottom, from the head liner to shampooing the carpets and washing, waxing the whole thing. Anyway, she was SO Surprised and I never thought she would SO Excited. Her sister told her that if she didn't want she would take it. Briley even sit in it last night and did her homework in it. It's a 1999 and I got a really good deal form a GREAT Friend on it, but my Wife and I was even surprised how well it cleaned up.

Good looking ride for a first vehicle. I remember my first daily driver was a 1997 Chevy Lumina sedan. I wish your daughter luck, as well as the rest of your hair lol.

Here's the video, it's a little rough but I didn't want her to know I was videoing her. I don't think her feet hit the ground for most of the video. You will also notice #2 Daughter doesn't waste any time claiming her seat.. :D
