Coming from someone who just got out of the car searching experience, whatever you do-patience is key. When I was out looking, I did look at a couple GPs and they do come in some really interesting colors-namely the kinda different bronzy brown color.


Oh and theres nothing wrong with red cars. :P

I didn't say there was anything wrong with red, but if you wanna stand out, you gotta be different.

98-00 is the easiest to modify and the 98-99 seem to be built the best motor wise (more factory freaks). GTP or bust.

I see someone else agree with me on the years.

Agreed. A NA 3800 10 years newer in a 2001 GT was still almost as breathless and strained-sounding above 3000rpm as a 1991 3800

GTX will cost a bit more, but you get a nice ram-air hood, really sweet wheels, and an overall different styling. It still has the */C V6.

The Comp-G is only in the 2004+ models.

A car very similar to the GTP is a Buick Regal GS. These cars compete with BMW 5-Series cars, the Taurus SHO, and various others in the same power class.

Don't worry about reliability issues. Just like every car, there are problems. But for the most part, a GP is a solid car.
