I'm really not sure the person I got it from lost the key then someone else started tearing in to the column so its kinda a mess but if I can disarm the security stuff then could I change the ignition. I really like this car and never gotten to drive it it looks so fun

the security system is part of the ignition switch so not sure what you are trying to do. Replace the ignition switch or have someone cut a new key for the vehicle based on the VIN and use the old switch.

did your friend make the key based upon the VIN number of the car?
have you considered going to a dealer and having them make you a key based on the VIN?
I assume the key turns in the ignition lock but the car does not start and the security light is lit?

How did you get this car home?
Did you actually see the engine running at any time before buying this car?

Getting back to the current issue, if I understand you now have a key that will turn in the ignition lock but the car does not start?
Is the security light on when you attempt to start it?
Does you lock smith have the equipment to code the key to the vehicle based upon the VIN?
If not, has any attempt been made to buy a coded key at a GM dealer?
