My dad has an '02 4 door GTP and that car moves!!! I took it to 95+MPH without even breaking a sweat when chasing a 300zx on the freeway... needless to say my dad doesn't let me drive his car too often...

my only argument is that im 17 years old and i don't need ALL of that extra space untill im a bit older..ya know? both cars are superb..and i think we should rip on the GTP a bit less than we do because its in the pontiac family btw...i'm keepin the SSEi ..dUH!!!

The only real problem with the grand prix'* are the finish, and build quality are a little less then Bonnevilles. But the owners, mainly ClubGP are the one'* we've had problems with before. There'* a girl here in mankato who'* 24 who drives a GT Special edition, and she'll be at our meet, she seems nice so far.

people are going tol state their opinion on a car whether it'* in the pontiac family or not. That dosn't mean much to me with this car...you're only 17 and don't need all that space??...well, this is where the stereotypes come in. Apparently people don't need space until they are older...this is a good contribution on your behalf to the Bonneville being an "older persons" car.
I just stated that myself, i prefer something that not EVERYBODY has. And there are too many of those cars for my liking, around here anyway. THEY ARE EVERYWHRE...everybody and their brother and brother'* mother-in-law have one. It'* just a cheaper alternative to the Bonneville. .2 seconds dosn't mean that much to be a lemming to me.

Ryan, you'll be very happy with that space for college, between moving stuff around constantly, and moving ladies around.

Same here. They're a dime a dozen. There was a red '99 here that started out about 10,500 but then after sitting about a month or two, was down to 8,900. I didn't check, but prolly did have high miles for that.

Thats when you strive to be different & make your car unique. Yes I do understand you can only do so much to make it different, but never the less its still fun. Cuz around our area you see to many of every make & model.
