Default 92-99 toughest to back up

I never felt confident backing up my 98 due to the fact I couldnt see my rear (spoiler). It took me like 2 months until I backed up into my garage with it and was nervous still everytime afterward. Probably the toughest car I've ever backed into my garage.

Being able to see my spoiler in the 03 makes it cake. I havent even had my new bonnie for a month and I back it into places I wouldnt my 98.

Does anyone else think the 92-99 Is a handful backing up?

How can something with side mirrors be hard to back up??? I've never had a problem backing anything up if it had both side mirrors... I've driven a few 92-99 bonnies and had no problem backing them up but I drive so many different cars I just get used to it, I don't think its difficult but maybe its just me?

I don't have problems. I back the car up in garage and parking lots all the time. There'* no other way to fly.

I'm also a side-view mirror backer and back up all the time, so I don't have any trouble, but my wife has trouble...
