Default Just drove a Special Edition SC'd GP

WTF

I'm sorry...but HOLY CRAPPOLA DUDE, I broke traction at every intersection. Its a cherry red 98 or 99 Special Edition Grand Prix, it doesn't say GTP or Anniversary edition, just Special Edition all over the place, even the 16" rims say Special Edition Grand Prix.

I never liked the interior plastic fantasic of the GP, but wow, it was fun

Just thought I would share that one

98 or 99? I thought they started those in 2000. Must have been supercharged if it was acting like that

The dual silencer style tips set it apart, and yes it has the electronic boost gage, very cool
