They make one car they going to make thousands of it. Regardless what year it is. I thougjht this was a know truth. THIS IS NOT A FLAME.

That'* not what I"m saying. What I am saying is that EVERYBODY owns a Grand Prix/Civic. EVERYBODY does mods to them. EVERYBODY has the same mods! There'* only so much you can do to a car and they've lost any appeal they might have had (which is none to me in the first place, but that'* just me)
It has nothing to do with being loyal to Pontiac! Give me a break. Pontiac is a part of GM, if you are going to be loyal to Pontiac, buy any GM vehicle since they are all intertwined together.

GTP'* are nice and fast, and you can do a lot of stuff that is custom only to yours. www.ultimatewarriorracing.com has some very neat stuff for these cars, interiors and such too. That stuff is rare... The Civic is just a cheap car, and not nearly as Luxo, the GTP will have a nice radio/controls, HUD probably a moonroof, etc.

Don't tell me you think a GP is luxurous. Nasty looking leather and rickety plastic everywhere...things poking you here and there...have you ever BEEN in one? My moto is if you can sit down in a car and by lifting your arm up your elbow can hit the window without stretching then you're dog mean in a side impact...hehe. I used that example bc my mom'* Grand Am and uncle'* Grand Prix is like that...gross. Totally claustrophobic.

I don't understand the idea of buying a car based on what everyone else has or does not have...just buy what you like. Sure, the GPs are everywhere, but you wanna know why so many people have them? Because they are a fantastic car for the price. I'll never go back because I am used to the Bonneville size and luxury now, but I loved the GP I owned before the Bonnie...they are amazing cars that last forever and require far less in the way of maintanence than our Bonnies to keep running (I beat that thing up for 4 straight years, waiting 8,000-10,000 miles or more to do oil changes, never did a tranny flush in 215,000 miles, and let anything that broke stay broken for weeks...and it never failed to start and get me where I was going). I love my Bonnie, but I miss it still sometimes.
So I say GP, but it really depends on what you're looking for...if you want a sporty little 2 or 4 door with a lot of pick up and go that'll last forever, but don't mind sacrificing head room, cargo space, and uniqueness, go with the GP. If that'* not your cup of tea, go ahead and go with one of the others.

Not all GP'* are rickety and stuff. Some bonnies aren't well built either. You just have to find one that'* babied, otherwise it'* just a slightly smaller Bonnie. Specially compared to newer.. :Ahem: 2k+ bonnies....

Please, don't bring that back up again. Don't need nothing started. Let that go.

Sorry!!!! I didn't mean it like that!!!! I'm just saying that the Newer GP'* are really close to the Bonnies in size. Although they have some silly engine bay braces... They need a nice STB! I just love big cars though... Prob why I hope to get a 99 SSEi, over a 2k+ for now. Hopefully white (sorry jim not 100% your dream but i will carry on that dream!)

I'm bustin out the Virtual lock here.

I believe the original point was to help suggest a new car choice not to **** and rant about the validity of car designs, biased opinions and other forums.

Lets get back on track here

*there, I just kicked my soapbox under my desk* I don't really want to have to stand on it anymore today
