You would have to get a GTP without the sunroof. I looked at a 2 door gt with a roof and I could not drive it cause my head hit the roof. I didn't even bother to take it off the lot. And it even had the power seat on the lowest, so unless you enjoy a good ghetto lean, I'd pass.

Come to think of it, I rode in my brother'* 2dr gt without sunroof and I had to add some lean to the seat to be comfortable in the passenger seat.

By the way, I am 6'3"

Damn, yeah I'm definitely not fitting in one then. Being a giant isn't as good as it'* hyped up to be.

You could always look at a 97+ Regal GS. A little understated until the right pedal is engaged.
Definately the wolf in sheep'* clothing of the L67 bunch.

I will agree with the regal. I had a 2000 GSE for a year and loved it I fit well even with the sunroof. Sold it only cause of gas price, and depretiation (drove it faster than I paid the loan off) There is one in my area, a 98 for $3400 with around 100k I think. 2000 was first year of the fold down rear seats (previous had a passthrough like bonnevilles, but larger) and also had better cupholder and storage compartment door design.

What are you looking for in a car? Sportiness? Sporty and Luxurious? There'* a lot of options out there. Have you ever looked at an Aurora? The 2001+ V6 models are lighter than the same year of Bonneville, ride better, handle better, and come with more available options. (plus the insurance is much lower.) The V6 Aurora is slightly faster than the SLE Bonneville, and the V8 is about equal with the SSEi (or it might be slightly faster.) You might not think you'll like it, I didn't either, until I test drove one...
