Default Looking for advice (Pics)

As some may know, I've had some issues with my Bonne recently. I've talked it over with the wife and we've decided not put the money into the needed repairs. It'* time to move on. I've been looking for a replacement the past couple of weeks and I've found a few potentials.

I thought about going back to a truck or even looking at a Jeep Wrangler, but I've decided to stay with Pontiac. I've never been a fan of the usual imports and, to be honest, Pontiac has always been my first choice when it comes to modern cars. I decided whatever I get would be L67 powered. Here'* what I'm looking at....

First one and first choice is a Black 01 SSEi. It'* loaded, in nice shape, with 67k on it. They're asking $10,000.

Next up is a brown 01 Grand Prix GTP, well optioned, with 60k on it. They want $9000

Last one is a black 00 Grand Prix GTP, well optioned, with 71 on it. They want $7500.

I'm still looking for alternatives... I'd like to keep the replacement at about $10k or less. Any advice on the about is welcome. I'm also looking at different sources for the best deal on a loan. Anyone have any opinion on using an online place like Lending Tree or ELoan?

Are the GP'* 2 doors or 4?

the coupes can be a pain to get in and out of the back. I'm sure a car seat would be worse

If they're all 4 doors, I really don't think you could lose.

But you know which one we would pick

what kind of brown? Is there pictures available of all three?

I like the GTPs (sorry guys)

My thing is that if I need to replace, I'm going to replace it with something different.

No 96-99 SSEi'* in your area?? You'get a much better price, and more interior room, than any of the options you've listed so far
