92-99 definately looks like its for old people, the 2k+ is sporty as hell, the only thing that makes it look like an old persons car is the large size

i try to prevent mine from looking like an old folk car by keeping the rear end jacked up and the roof in vent. i try to keep it looking sporty that way. certain picture angles on the 92-99 also make it look like an older person car. The 2000+, it doesnt even matter how you take a pic of the caar, it looks good!

The 92-99 look more old lady ish... Now on the other hand the grille on the SSE and SSEi and SLE later years is really nice looking and sharp! The 2000 and on Bonnies are sporty and look youthful! The size does make it look like its an ol' farts car tho! (I know we share a LeSarbe frame) ((YUCK YUCK)) The 2004 and 2005 GXP and 2005 SLE look the best yet and remind me of the G6 and Grand Prix (a good thing) yeah yeah!

In my humble opinion, none of them look overly "Old fart"ish. But, again my opinion. the 2K+ looks too much like a Grand Prix and Grand Am.....
