My GTP could hold 3 comfortably in the back seat, with enough leg room and i am no short person either but even with my seat almost all the way back, there was plenty of leg room. I have noticed the Bville is a lil more spacious, but the GP isnt bad at all

I like GTPs too but just save yourself the trouble and go with a proven formula: buy a 96-99 SSEi and mod it. You'll have about the same performance as a GTP and more room than a TL or a GTP. How about that?

No one has mentioned that they hold up well while sliding upside down on pavement. That is a BIG plus in my book!!

fuel...nice plan...in fact...look at the stats on all the cars that i am interested in...plus my buick thrown in there for good measure:...the 96-99 bonnie (not in the list) comes up with 110 cubic feet of interior space! the largest of them all!

Scoitt..that site is a load of manure.. the GTP should have slightly less cost per year than SSEi..it'* lighter.

yes bill...i believe you..but i am actually not too concerned about gas mileage since these cars all come close to each other in class...look at the interior volume of each car...that is what really amazes me. no wonder i felt cramped going from my buick into the TL the 96-99'* are really starting to look good. besides, in the "MyCarStats" account, i read that the TL'* all have a serious issue where they will accellerate on their own..causing pretty serious accidents in nearly all cases of it occuring. no thanks!
