Default Pontiac 6000 SSEi!

Well, an automotive shop owner informed me of a cheap "grand prix" for sale for a few hundred bucks. A week later, this "grand prix" turned out to be a Pontaic 6000 for $400 CDN. I was in the market for a vehicle for my girlfriend so I looked up on it, and it turns out the Pontiac 6000 has quite the few features like ELC, air adjusted shocks, hell, it even turned out Car and Driver'* Top Ten list 3 times, while the Bonneville was appeared once in 1987. Anyways, trying to find more information on the car, and trying to adapt to its horrifying looks, I went on to CarDomain to see if anyone had a nice enough one for me to say, okay fine, I'll take it.

And I come across this:

I think i saw that on a-body.org. I would love to have one w/ a L67 and AWD. But that AWD trans would poop itself.

17.58 Secs @ 78 mph? wtf?

A bonneville which weighs like 900 lbs more can do that easily maybe faster...whats up with that? The thing is only like 3100 lbs!!!

Yeah, that 17.58 is probably the stock time. ANY Bonneville could beat 17.58 in good running shape.
