the 97-99 will be your best benefit, as the 96 dosent support a PCM and the 2000+ are heavier

Exactly. And with about 1000 bucks under the hood, you'll be flying.

The GNs and Impalas are very pricey, too.

thats what i mean, if u can afford one even a not so nice one, do a minor restore or fix it up and resell. both cars have very high demand which = high resale value = money in your pocket if u dont dump too much money in fixing up the car.

ok so that gives more time to save for car. if u can afford it why not buy a 96-99 with high miles and later buy a gn or impala.
