Default The GXP'* little brother

It'* not a Bonneville, I know but couldn't help post this. It'* a 1988 Grand Am SE Turbo. Bought it off a friend in the midwest and drove it to Delaware this weekend. It needs a little work - the sagging headliner is first on the list, but it drives and runs perfect.

This isn't a vehicle we support here, so this is going to the Lounge.

WHOA!

I happen to know that this particular car is EXTREMELY rare. You will almost never see one, ever. I have only seen one in my whole life.

There is a little old lady 3 doors down from my grandma that has one the same year, but it'* blue. It'* identical except for the color. And not 1 bit of rust on it, and it only has like 50,000 miles on it.

We had a white one like that before we got the Bonneville, but it was in a really crappy condition from what I remember , we see it every now and then around town, about the same condition as it left us with.

that looks great though

Probably not much to add but I had a 1991 Grand Am LE. The interior was MINT I mean friggen MINT as it can be! Outside it had a little bit of rust. Was my perfect beater car till the muffler started falling off and overheating

How is this a GXP'*? little brother? I'd consider it to be a cousin car to the Grand Prix, but not the Bonneville or GXP trim.
