If *God forbid* I had to replace mine *and had the money, lol* I would get a red on black fully loaded 94 SSEi.

Loaded '99 SSEi with an '03 swapped interior (seats, dash, instrument panel....everything).

96-99 bonnies have a timeless beauty...really.

Mike, you drove my 94 SSEi, and you been in Seths 98SLE, giving a you a decent idea of what you are getting. I like the 96-99 SSEi, but prefer certain design cues of the 92-95 SSE trim level.

If you can afford one, I would get a 01+ SSEi. GXP would top my list...but its to expensive.

To be quite honest, I was more into playing with the cars then actually paying attention to them. I mean getting yours to whine ( playing with the boost gauge), and playing on the 4 lane HWY in Seth'* car enjoying the HID lights, trying to get open spaces to give it the go pedal, lol.

I need more "testing" time to actually have a good look at each car, I mean I did get to ride in Seth'* car all the way back home ( approx 5 hours). There are differences between them, but that was a few months ago. I would almost need them side by side to really go over them on the inside.

On Thursday I get to go under the car, have a GOOD look front to back and see what is possibly going to go next. If it is really that bad I may have to call the guy in T.O. that has the white 89 SSE, that is listed in the auto trader. Why does this kind of thing always happen around x-mas and when you don't have the extra $$$ to do it. Reason I am still leaning towards getting a good SSE in the pre-92 style is that I still have my 90 which is full of great parts, along with that new motor, and a few MINT tail lights. We are willing to spend up to 500$ to fix the car we have. We would like to try and get another year out of her. If not then like mentioned before I think staying the same body style for now is our only option.

Worse case scenario I take a trip to go see Boosty in the U.*. and we take a "trip" during the night and uh..."borrow" a nice 90 SSE with an L67 in it, lol.

For me, it would be an L67 swapped 88-91 SSE in minty fresh condition. Realistically I'm looking into a 97-99 loaded SSEi.
