I agree with Russ on this.. Tamara'* mom has a 96 Grand Am.. and is it a PITA to work on and a POS.. that thing has went thru 2 head gaskets whole new brake system.. and may need calipers again now.. radiator.. sending unit.. 3 water pump.. and now there'* a coolant issue yet again.. OH god you have just as much room to work on that car as you would in a miini van. ( but at least in most mini van.. you can access the back of the engine thru the interior )

Do a autotrader search. Unless you don't mind the drive to Huntsville.. There'* a shop who sells cars on the side.. thats where we got Tamara'* "Crime of the Century" that TrueWildman has now ( and dubbed "Nevermore" ). You pay for the auction admission fee for the guy +$1000 commission.. and you get @ dealers cost @ the auction.. only bummer part is he'* place is in Huntsville and you can't check out the car before cause it'* a dealer auction.

Is it just me, or was the first post one big run-on sentence? lol...

Oh, and who needs all those options, anyway? My SE has plenty to go wrong on it already, lol. repinS has touched on this, too...

Oh, yeah, and that site has only Canadian cars, Drifter. Everyone knows they don't count...
