I drove my first SSEi in 1997. It was a 95 green with tan interior. I could not help but to just keep spining the tires on take off. From that day I wanted a SSEi and could never afford one. Then when I finally could afford one I fell in love with the GXP and got that instead.

First time was when I took mine for a test drive back in April. I pulled off of markviisvt4'* road and whomped on it and I forgot about torque steer like a idiot and it pulled hard to 60. I let off and my dad looks over at me and says... "wow". I thought he was gonna tell me I was a idiot for doing that.

Im afraid to try and lay one down. I think I need some work up front before I try.

Oh yeah, on topic, Ummm The first time I drove an SSEi was when I bought mine in February of this year.

First time in an SSEi was when my mom bought hers in 2003 I believe. I knew it was one damn fast car the first time my dad gunned it on the test drive, and I couldn't help but smile when he did that. My first experience with a supercharged car was with my 97 Riviera though. That was a bit quicker than our 00 SSEi and I fell in love the first time I test drove it. The smoothness and torque of the */c 3800 is amazing! I miss it sometimes, for sure.

well, i have to admit, the most bonneville i have ever driven was dads SSE. 1990, and it seemed like moms taurus could run it. the steering wheel was loose <bad tilt thingy> and brake accumulator was bad. but when you got that boat on a dirt road, you had it made. it was perfectly balanced i thought. coulda been from the toasted shocks, but when you turned that wheel, the rear end stepped out, and no matter what you did <as long as you werent stupid> it was always waiting for you to straighten out. perfect dirt road car IMO. moms taurus now, that thing pushed like a tank, then snapped around, and all you could do was hope you could keep up with it.

My first time was driving Ryan'* (SSuperchargedEI) 98. I left a pretty nice set of tracks...

I also drove my 95 back from new york and it was fun until the motor started to buck and kick under WOT.
