I don't know what you are talking about. All Grand Prix'* (especially special & anniversary editions) are slow and crappy. Hell, I think you are even lying about breaking traction at every intersection...I know our crappy slow Anniversary editon can't do that...

They are definately very nice cars....I love 'em.

See...I told 'ya Aurora'* were slow!!!

Sounds like you had fun...now imagine that car running mid 12'*...that is what sits in the left bay of our garage each an every day, right next to the 1990 Turbo 3.1L Grand Prix, which sits right next to the 2000 Bonneville SSEi. Needless to say, Forced Induction, Front Wheel Drive, V6 Pontiacs are what we like!

Shawn likes pushin my buttons tonight :P

I had driven that car before, so I knew what to expect, but yes it was good fun. If it had the fit and finish of my Aurora or even Bonnies, then ya, great car...none the less...

The only problem, the climate control **** was missing and looked pretty ghetto, and for some reason the HUD was dead...

The twin intake dealies on the hood are pretty cool, so are the rims...it looks great in red too

They do seem like a much cheaper car inside because they are just made more cheaply, and it is MUCH louder inside a GTP than an SSEi. They just kind of seem like a cheap car compared to an SSEi for some reason.

The climate control **** has to do with the cheapness of the car again, but if it were my car I would fix it...it is like a $30 part. Are you sure the HUD wasn't just off?

The heat extractors are definately cool, I don't like the rims too much just because its about 10 too many spokes for me, and they are kind of a PITA to clean, but nothing like the crosslaces on the '90 Turbo, which I believe are the same as the ones on the Bonnevilles, but I'm not 100% sure. If you take the plastic cover off from under the heat extractors on the hood, they actually work. You can see the heat pour out at stoplights.

Anyways, I would still rather have an SSEi...for another $5,000 you get MUCH more car.

Unfortunately I don't get my license until either Thursday or Friday, but thats just in time for Michigan Grudge Match 4 with the Michigan Grand Prix Club on Saturday. I plan to be the slowest forced induction car there, and proud of it!!! Of course my forced induction Grand Prix will be 40 c.i. (.7L) smaller than the others, and probably 7+ years older too.
