I like the 92-99 style

Arent the newer ones 400 pounds heavier?

The 92-99 look like a car.
The 00+ look like a damn space shuttle, and move slower then a 90'* car with the same engine, have worse handling, a worse interior (IMO). I'm not suprirsed that the bonneville died on the new platform.

92-99 = more classy
00+ = Sportier

here is my opinion....

I have driven my 1993 SE bubblebutt (duh, its my car lol) and my parents 2000 SE. My 93 handled better to me. I think the 90'* body style is somewhat sporty, and the 2000 is more stylish.

Oh, by the way: Bubblebutts can look good, look at Driverjohn and his 92.
