Nothing like electrostatictommy's 1996, which was proof to all of us... the rear panel lights can be done!
I want to thank you all for voting for me, this is a real privilege! I bought this car from the original owner with 125,000 miles for $2000 three years ago. I have done routine maintenance and recent body work to give it a like new look and some upgrades but have kept it mostly stock. Last week I added Sirius/XM satellite radio. It is a Bright White with Charcoal interior 96 Autobahn with all options. I just put on my second set of Yokohama Avid V4S V rated tires and really like these tires for ride comfort and quiet ride.
When I first bought the car I found the ACNA through a web search and have been a regular here ever since. I have received a wealth of knowledge and helpful tips here!
I would like to again say I really appreciate the MFA award for September and plan on keeping my Aurora for many years of driving enjoyment!!!

Congratulations! Your Aurora is truly a pleasure to look at. I like how nice your lower bumper pieces look. You replaced the rear one didn't you?
Thanks everyone, no the rear wasn't replaced. I just repainted it when I had the body work done. I had the body shop repaint the lower fascia black instead of the stock dark grey. I also painted the tailpipes and mufflers and hand polished the tips.

^^ What do you mean "lack of fogs"? As far as I know it is possible to just turn them off, isn't it? BTW actually when I was writing it I was certain that that's an Aurora - now I'm not so sure, but I still think it's the Rora, because the Intrigue seems to have a bit wider headlights...

god that aurora is nice..... im almost envious. your driver seat has the same wrinkles as mine does.
In the end the only reason the ACNA exists is to fix, and enhance auroras. To look down on the people who serve this main goal is to look down on the ACNA itself. Politics, standard of living, race.... the rora transcends all of those things. A mere machine can do what its creators can not do, bring people together. To that end i will work tirelessly to keep my rora on the road.
