Default Hello

Hello all,

I found a link to this site and figured I'd join. I don't own a Bonnie at the moment. Right now I own a 1990 Grand Prix STE turbo and a 1991 Trans Am. I'm looking at getting a newer car very soon. Probably going to be a 98+ GTP, 98+ Regal GS, or a 00+ SSEi. I joined to learn more about the Bonnie'* and to help with my decision. I have liked the SSEi since the newer body style came out it 00. I drove a GXP this past summer and loved it. I don't think that'* in my price range though.

My STE is 1 of 1000 made. I added 5 spoke GTP wheels, HUD, STB, K&N cone, topgun chip, 160 tstat, AC fins mod, UD pulley, KYB GR2 struts, and poly upper mounts. Bigger rockers, custom BOV, and custom pillar pod are in the garage. best time was 14.860 @ 92.25 mph with a 2.317 60ft.

My TA is not running now, due to rod knock. The new engine is in and all that'* left is to install the distirutor and ingition wires, and heater hoses. Mods are TES headers, AFPR, UD pulleys, K&N, qtec exhaust cutout, and some Accel stuff if that counts.

If you'd like to see pics of either I'll post some. I'm going to look at a 00 SSEi this week. Black, 41k, $13000. Seem like a decent price? Anyways, sorry for the long post. Please forgive me if I ask newbie questions, I'll use the search I promise!

Welcome! You could certainly use another Pontiac in the stable. Might as well be the Flagship of the line

welcome!! make sure to check out the regals as well. it has just a tad bit more class than an ssei and also better ride quality and performance (minimal).

Go with the Bonne or Regal, Bonne if you want a cruiser though since its bigger than the Regal.

Welcome.

The GS and the GTP are great cars too, but good luck with your decision.
