Uhm, Pat...so back on topic...

If you can't afford the 2000 or newer and have to get Something new (obvious from your posts), it doesn't look like you have many options. Can you get a used G6 for that kind of money? Those are pretty sweet. My daughter just bought one.

G6 is still too expensive for her

From the sounds of it, i would go with the GP. No matter how much money you put into a cavi, it'll need more in a month. And since the GP is related to the bonneville motor wise, that is all good. And judging by the deal she is getting, it seems like a good one. As for the bumpers, I personnally know how easy the front ones are to crack since my brother'* has damage there which was from bumping a piece of ice while parking on the side of the street. They aren't as flexable as the bonneville ones.

As for the deal, from what you listed it sounds like she is getting a good deal on the car if she gets it. If the cavi is as bad as you state, then she isn't getting hosed there either. I know GP prices here are $5500 for a 98 base gt (no options) with 101k, so if the one she is looking at is 2000+ and less than 50k, she is getting a good deal at $8500.

I'd say get the GP GT.

Pat I hope she has gotten the car or will have it shortly.... I am not a big GP fan, but the car looked to be in good shape, and at that price I sure would have hit it with those low miles... I have known people with Cavis and I would not have one... In a few years you two will be able to buy the Bonnie... The GP will more than suffice and I'm sure that Amanda will grow to love that car... Besides its a 3800 powered GP GT, gotta be fun to drive
