Dang son... I've always wondered what it feels like to roll a car. I'm sure it's pretty hard to in these cars with the low CoG though. Glad it held up and you're OK though. Just count it off as a...

Lol, thanks. Yeah, I'm pretty excited. I wish I didn't have to wait until later for the Performance Package though. I'm guessing November or December.

I could... but I'm not letting it go for cheap since it's probably the last mostly stock '99 GSX with a manual transmission left in red (and I put a ton of money into maintaining it over the years)....
