What about the guy at ONBF that yelled out get a real car lol

Mine gets called a Grand Prix all the time then some say well the 3.8 is a great motor (they must not be able to read it did say NORTHSTAR on the windshield.

I give old guys a break all the time. But Ryan'* dad is definately not old acting. He has or goes to a party every weekend. If you were to meet him you would think he was only in his early twenties. He is more active than I am or ever have been and I am only 21! It'* kinda sad that I act older than my father-in-law.

Never heard of SSI

But when I took mine in to see what they'd give me for trade....(mind you this was a pontiac dealer) the dude called it a Grand Prix first, then called it a SSE1
