I live in Toronto...insurance hell hole of the world. cept New York..anyway

I like V8'*

If I had bottomless pockets and if I could afford the V-12 and its gas guzzler purchase tax, then fine.

But even the 735iL Sport short wheel base seen in The Transporter will do just fine thank you

Default PA body change

1997 was the first year for the current PA body style.
I am familiar with PA'* because my 78 year old father has a black 1997 PA Ultra bought new in early 1998 (for about $10K under list).
Here'* the kicker: the 6 year old Buick only has 15000 miles on it!
I find the '97 PA transition strange, since the Bonneville changed in '96 and both cars were built on the same Flint, Mi. assembly line.
Still, I like my SSEi much more- Dad'* Buick rides smoother, but my Pontiac just flat handles and feels better to drive, at least to me..........
