Well, I was looking to dump my GTP because of the slipping tranny and I was looking around for '04 GTP'*. I found one at a local stealership and test drove it. It was nice and all but for some reason I felt more cramped in it then I did in my '00 GTP. (I'm almost 6'4") It just didn't feel right. Anyway, on the way back from the test drive we're driving past the used car line up and I spot the Bonnie'* front end peeking out at me. I right away knew what it was, I've always liked the Bonnevilles and just thought they were always out of my price range. So I tell the guy to stop and ask if I can drive that Bonneville over there. He says sure and gets the keys. One drive and I was sold on the car. Left the GTP there as a trade and drove of in my '03 SSEi Haven't looked back since!

I definately paid enough for it....but it'* California after all Actually I looked around and priced some and they were going from as low as $19K up to $24K at the time so....I was just happy to dump my car and move on without any hassle. So I paid a few grand more then I should have.....you take a bath anytime you buy a newer car anyway...just depends on how bad.
