:( Yep it was just purchased for my wife. Hopefully she will let me drive it once in awhile. I sad part was I had to use my 89 Bonneville as trade in for it. It has 96K on it and is loaded. The car is awesome and I will try to get some pics of it tommorrow cause I know how worthless this thread is without em.

Can we ask what you got for your trade in on the 89? I can't imagine it would be enough to be worth it, unless it had mechanical problems that you didn't want to spend money on to fix.

I feel your pain. It'* not unknown that my wife gets to drive mine to work everyday also. My current work requires that I have a truck available most days.

It was one of those deals where whatever you drive in is at least a 5000 minimum trade. So I basically gave them the old bonny and they jacked up the price on the Grand Prix, but it won't matter much since my wifes old car 96 Taurus cough cough, was sold to my mother so she will be help making the payments on the new Grand Prix. So all in all everything turned out ok. But it was definately a sad day getting rid of the 89. It was the car that got me started here almost 4 yrs ago. :(
