Yeah, my mom had a red 1998 SE, and she picked this one out for me because we were on a budget. I'm six foot three without shoes, so this is a pretty comfy car.

We'll have to wait for the backseat compliments, though. We computer science majors have got the odds against us, nice cars or not. ::shrug::

Wow, mom picked the car out for you... Cool.

The big bonnie can be changed a bit to make it handle and perform a bit better... Every change I have made has been well worth the effort... Now I just need to find time to make more changes...

My '90 GP had an in park/under 15 rev. limiter, as does my buddy'* '89. It topped out at 122.. it just couldn't go anymore. My Bonneville has the same thing, though as for top speed I'm not sure.. I've had the car up to 115 more than once.

Mine is OBD I, but the hybrid one, and it has a rev limiter at 4000. I only know this because right after I got my exhaust my friend sat down in my car and started reving it. Then he really started getting on it and started swearing at my car because it would not go above 4000 I told him to stop...quite frankly I was pissed off that he reved my car that high...and wanted to go higher.
