Satty's glow-worm comes out (Oh noes!!)

If you haven't seen by my title yet, I am a glow-worm (I like neon lights on cars). Here's some pics of my old car, a 1996 Pontiac Grand Am SE (the car in my sig, which has now been sold) and my new car. If you can guess what it is, I'll give you an E-cookie. Pics:

Grand Am:



The pic above is what was under the car. Multiple 12" Cold Cathodes wired together connected to a fuse, then the battery. It was hell because of all the wires, but the light was so much brighter than regular neon.

New car:


Only has 2 regular neon tubes on the front and rear. For the sides, I'm going with the green Cold Cathodes that I didn't sell. Now the question is...who can guess the car?

Definite give away... Either mid- 90's Lumina or Monte Carlo, can't see the doors.

95 Lumina. Nice car for 1300 bucks IMO. I'll get day pics up when I get some time.

Still haven't gotten any time to put the green on the sides. The whole weekend has been 80's and humid. I like 60s-70s and no humidity. Not to mention "UV danger" is "very high" and the air quality is unhealthy (like I care, since I smoke anyways). The next few days in this week should be low 70s-high 60s. Should be nice. Humidity should go away too. Can't wait till these storms come through.

Eh, it's an "aquired taste" I guess. Kinda like rotten shark in Scotland...
