Well, I'm going back to look at it a second time. First time it was night and the thing died because of a loose battery cable, lol It has a rust hole about an inch around on the passenger side up near the windshield. Looks to be in a patchable area, however, and she'* white, which will help How much do you think I can Jew him down because of this, though? I'll have to try that code thing tomorrow, too. Thanks again guys

My dad has a 96 P/A Ultra. The thing is a rocket compared to my SSEi, he smokes me and I have a 3.4 pulley.

Ride is great, and it handles like a Buick. Somehow they tuned the platform totally different for the Buicks from my Pontiac. His car feels like it is 500lbs heavier than my car and is dead quiet inside.

The only downside is with 67k my dads interior is very creeky, the doors, dash, and such all have minor creeks. Also, the switches dont feel like they are 5 star quality. But, I am an engineer and thngs like that do annoy me.

Performance and ride should be decent, but there'* not much you can do about the looks/styling. It'* an old lady'* car, plain and simple. At least it has proably been nicely cared for, but I say don't settle on it unless you're REAL desperate for a new car.
