Default I'm about to buy this hood ride

1995, 87k miles, wrecked but pretty much fixed. I have to clean up a few things. I know the owner, its not too ghetto.

gotta trade the wheels, exhaust, and suspension for stock ****, and paint the car gray.

At first I was thinking about painting it that gray color, then...they heavens parted and I saw a bush burning in the bushes, and a voice spoke to me from the burning bush:
I am the Lord Thy God.
Thou shalt have
no other gods before me.
Thou shalt pain your fagmo car UPS brown.
Thou shalt send copious amounts of trim to thine lair.
if thou is able to worketh it, then
thou shalt do thine thang, flip thine thang, and subsequently reverse it.

lol. That **** isn't going to fly with me. I plan on driving that while I build my car...and after I adjust to my recent pay bump, if I can't comfortably afford that white ms3, then I'll get a begi-s for it and paint that **** brown, son.

I don't mind the wheels actually. I think they'd look good on my car.

Be kind of funny to have 250WHP in a ghetto car with a ricer wing. People would figure you ARE a fanboi ricer until you put them in the weeds. Get the mods done, and leave the spoiler for a month. THEN clean it up and paint.

I'm cleaning it up first. I have to build my green car first. Then relax a bit and crush ************* at Hallett in September. I just need a reliable daily now, but I have free paint, so I'm going to take advantage of that.

Don't waste your money, just drive it like it is and finish your car first, once you are done with your car, then do whatever you want to this one.
