It would have to be 4 door. I thought of maybe a GP, well it would have to be a GTP, lol. I even thought of the Impala, NOT the new style, they are ugly. So as you can tell I would really like to stay GM and 3800 if possible.

I hope I don't have to find another car but I will know more Thursday.


OH on the GP as a choice, what years?? I know the Bonne has the intake issue, what about the GP?

gp has same problems.


and more. but not much worse than a 2000+ bonnie.


I intend on having a late 90s GTP and a early 90s ssei eventually (if I get all my debts paid off).

99 SLE SC. Assuming they existed. Fully loaded like Will'*. Don't much care for the 2k+ body style as much.

1993 hands down. The 2000+ are nice, but, after great thought on one, i took a look at mine and decided, well, the window regulators wont break constantly, intermediate shaft problem...not gunna happen ever...reliabilty wise, i see the pre 2k'* to be better.
That and..2 1993'*..why not a third? heheh

If I had to do it all over again, a 93 SE.

94-95 out of the question...hybrid PCM
96-00 wouldn't bother either...intake gasket failure
<92...nope...EGR-less..burn up valves potentially
>01 too new...not as affordable

93 is the best of all worlds, hands down.

yep my ideal garage by this time next year will be a 93 SSEI and a 97-99 GTP 4dr, use that for mods and around town to burn up rice..... and the ssei as the reliable long distance highway driver.
