Sorry to hear about that. As hard as it is to let go a favorite car, sometimes you just have to move on. And only you know what the right time is for you.

Don't worry, we'll still let you in....maybe..if you're good... :P

Keep your head up. While it may not seem li8ke an attractive option, it may be for the better. Keep your eyes open and you may just find a nice one out there that'* newer with less miles/problems.

If you like motor work and are near Syracuse, there was a 95 or 96 88 for $250 that had the LIM issue so it needed a motor...

I know how easy it is to get attached to a car. But when the repair bills start adding up, and when it'* going to cost a bundle to pass a smog test, it might just be easier and less expensive to get a newer car.

Just remember that the best remedy for the pain of losing a loved car is the joy of getting a newer one in better shape with more bells and whistles.

My wife missed her 88 Grand Prix 2 door. -For about 5 minutes, until she got behind the wheel of her 2001 Grand Prix GT 4 door. I'm sure I'll feel the same way when the day comes to replace my 97 Bonneville SE, and I slip behind the wheel of. . .I dunno, but I bet it will have a supercharger, or maybe a couple extra cylinders.
