If the Bonne doesn't work out, my second option would be the GP. That one looks nice, but it also depends on mechanical. Just my opinion though but I find the GA to be a bit small, especially if you have kids.

GP is a better "driving" car, but the grand am is more practical. I'd say keep to the bonnie, or maybe a GP.

If you know who'* doing the salvage, then it'* fine, but not at a lot i wouldn't buy it.

This car actually doesn't have to accomodate the kids regularly.....my wife and I will used it
to drive to work while our Mercury Villager is at the house for the kiddo'*....a kid or two may ride in
it occasionally.....

Well the SSEi was no good in my book....
From cracked front and rear bumpers and cracked drivers fender and
cracked windshield and olds Intrigue wheels and a half *** stereo,dvd,amp setup
It also looked oiling around the heads tooo...
naaaaaaaaaa!

No call back on the GP


And the grand am GT was kid owned.....it was decent lookin...but
it had aftermarket dual exhaust...not fart cans tho...toggle switches everywhere...and
a little emblem on the trunk say Nitrous Oxide Systems????
Hmmm Im not chancing it...
i did drive it...and it shook at 65,ABS light was on and BRAKE light was on..
AND THE DAMN ALARM WOULDN"T SHUT OFF!!!!

I am going out tomorrow with a friend and I WILL come home with something!

Damn, that SSEi sounded like a POS. I can't believe someone was actually trying to sell it in that condition. Good luck!
