You guys are all way off... except for Jim.

I might as well say it:

GTP!

I have always loved these cars. There are so many good deals where I live, and I would really love to get one. Plus I can afford it.

I have many plans for this car. Don't think of me as a traitor. I know this is a Bonneville Club, and there is bias toward Bonnies, but I think the GTP is a great car, and I know I'll be happy with it. I still love Bonnevilles, and in the future, when I have more money, I will probably end up getting an SSEi. I'm still a Bonnie owner at heart.

I plan to stay here too. I will not merge in to CGP. I personally don't like it there. 3800'* can get along with other 3800'*, so I will always be here.

As for the SSE, she will be around for at most another few months. I will get to enjoy my last moments with her for a little while.

A dream of mine is to have a race car to take to the track, and I believe the GTP is the way to go. My dad used to race his old Chevelle back in the day, as well as the GN, and I want to take after him with a GTP.

Thanks for understanding my switch.

There are 97'* selling for less than 6k. The SSEi'* are about 8k.

Sol I respect your opinion but the Grand Prix'* interior quality is really subpar....I know you'll want this thing for speed but your Bonne has it beat in terms of interior asethetics and quality.
