Yea, mine always got confused with being newer than it was. All of my friend'* loved the car and riding in it, so I guess that is a plus. Used to have friends calling dibs on riding with me if we had to take more than 1 car.

I love my car. 87-91 gen can kick a lot of cars' asses in appearance. My car-enthusiest friends all like her.. and around here everyone knows what a beast the 3800 is, and not to mess with me about my car being slow. It'* a big deal when you have a 3.8L.. because 2Ls are what'* going around here.

Also quite a few people don't believe my car is an '89 because she'* rust free.. and that I don't burn any oil. It'* like award-worthy when a car doesn't burn oil around here. But yeah, I wouldn't trade her for the world.

They are nice cars. Nothing to special about them until the modding begins

When I was looking to buy I figured..it'* a car. I'm an optionaholic, and I'm impressed with the number of options it comes with. An IT guy here logged onto my pc for a moment and said.."wow...awesome car", friends and family at first thought it was kind of big. We all know, Bonnie'* are not small. Just slide into that seat and a feeling of relaxation and comfort over take you.

Everyone loves the dash and most can't undertand HUD until they see it for themselves. Once they do they still have trouble understanding how a 10 year old car has so many great features and toys.

Personally the gas tank door lock and the inflator are the two that surprised me the most. I never expected to have options like that.

I've always thought the 96-99'* are nice cars, based on the taillights alone...

I've had a few people say "Nice Car", but unfortunately, the ony "car people" I know are here...

I think my 99 has one thing that stands out pretty cool, and that would be the honey comb styling to the tail lights, kinda like thet Trans Am'*. Im not sure what other model years have these but thats one thing I always notice and say "wow thats pretty cool" I look at it this way, this is the most expensive car Ive ever driven, assuming it was about 28K brand new so to me its very nice!
