Hello

Hello, ProbeTalk!

My account was finally activated yesterday (why did it take three weeks??) so I can introduce myself and my car. Earlier this year I bought my first car, a 1996 Probe GT. When I saw the ad, I knew this was the one. An extremely clean and stock example, my favorite rims and taillights, one of the best colors, etc. So I contacted the owner and then went with my dad on the long drive to go see it. It had been sitting for over a year, but it started right up and ran perfect. Eventually we bought it and headed for home. Since I had never driven manual, my dad drove it and I followed. The car was not registered or insured and had no plates, but we made it through several hours of driving, when, of course, the local police spotted it and pulled my dad over. And this was at 2 am if I remember correctly, haha. He had the title and the bill of sale so there were no problems, but its kind of a funny story.

Anyway I feel like I'm rambling so I'll stop there. Feel free to ask me anything.

Here she is:




Only things not stock are the floormats and the radio.

Wow! That is a clean car. Have you learned how to drive it yet? My first stick I bought with only a few minutes ever driving stick, RWD S-10, in winter, I drove it home.

Looks nice. Not too many clean, unmolested 5spd GTs left. Take care of it!

Yes I drove it soon after we got it home. Aside from starting in 1st gear, I picked it up almost immediately. I watched a lot of how-to videos, hah.

Great find and congrats! My first car was also a 96 PGT 5spd - back in 2005! I made the mistake of selling it and finally just got back into another PGT last week.

Whereabouts in MN are you?

I'm in southern MN. Having never seen a PGT other than mine, I wonder how many others are in Minnesota. The only probes I have memory of seeing are a couple of beat-up base models this summer.

There are only a few of us in MN that are still "involved" and interested in the probe game. I only know of maybe 5 in the state. That's why I would love to get some more ppl on board. I'm in Brooklyn Center btw if anyone is near

Thanks! As of right now, I have no plans for modifications. First, I want to fix a few things, replace timing belt, change fluids, etc.

Even if I wanted to do that I couldn't afford it, haha. Only mods I really want to do are short throw shifter, good radio (current radio has one button that works consistently), muffler swap or delete (I like the stock sound, but wish it was a bit more loud and aggressive)-all relatively inexpensive, and possibly coilovers.

Headers are $100-120 give or take, intakes like a KLG4 or curved neck can be found for $35 pulling it yourself at a junkyard. 2.5" Magnaflow hi-flow cat which passes emissions is around $75 get a couple flanges welded on figure another $40 after welding. It's all doable on a budget if you want.

I like the car how it is right now, it's like a time capsule. It does have a lot of miles, but it really isn't that far from how it would of looked in the showroom, it's so innocent and charming.

while i agree with you, i also think that just the basic bolt ons and suspension would be alright if the car was to sell later on. sometimes guys dont mind the parts on the car already.
