I'd take the '94-6 gen over the '97+ any day.

the interior is just SOOOOO cheap... cheap cheap cheap black plastic everywhere. Gimme the '91 SSE interior, ktnx.

ride? bumps linger around longer with the same firmness. I think I'm used to the floatiness.

Please tell me the GTP is leaps and bounds over the GT.

The GTP has the same interior but the steering is more stiff (Suspension) and of coarse its supeercharged.

I've had a GTP and 2 SSEi'*. The GTP was quick, light, and powerful enough for my needs. It was a great family car and at the time fit the budget. If your looking for raw unadulterated power, it can be had with the GTP or even Regal GS. If your looking for good power with a little more luxury look at the Bonneville, or Park Avenues. If your looking for high end luxury then your going to pay for it in the form of BMW and Lexus and Mercedes.

This has been stated before, but just because you have one bad experienace in a car does mean the entire model, line, or company is bad.

Yep, it all boils dont to the previous owner of the car. How they treated it when they previously owned the car only matter.
