im actually more partial to the 92-95 but i do like the modified trunk and spoiler from the 96-99 models. i would own either ones, i absolutely love the bonnevilles and the grand prixs also!

It'* all personal preference.

Saggy looking can also be defined on ride height and angle of picture.

I've seen some pics from each gen that could give them the saggy look and also that complemented them.

I love the 92-95 design alot. I dont know how to describe it, but I guess it looks more masculine. The 96-99 expounds too much on the "bubble butt" while the previous generation doesnt.

When the '96 came out, I thought the ***-end was ugly. Now I own one and prefer it much better. I think it has alot cleaner lines. Overall, the car is less cluttered, more shapely, more refined looking. I really love the return to the traditional Pontiac split, honeycomb grille with the Arrowhead emblem. Classic!

I kinda like mistas idea. I think if you took a 92-95 SSEi rear end with the bar across the trunk, it would look awesome. *I like the SSEi b/c of the trim*

Hey Mista, any better pics of the rear end with the inner taillights connected? I'm quite interested in that. My car is the same color as yours.

This is as close up as I took one, I simply had the part with the "SSE" emblem painted black for a connected look, A white one would be a better pic, But it'* quite noticable especially now that I have tinted tails,
