Regal, They look bad azz, and are kind of a sleeper.

Your about to start driving trucks soon, get your car fixed when you get the money. If not, get the 99 SSEi.

Personally, I'd go for one not on that list, a Riviera. They are really nice cars on the outside, classy looking on the outside, and you can get the good powerplant as well. But if not that, really all of the rest are good choices.

I'll beat Fantastic to it and suggest an L67 LSS.
Why: If you want something out of the ordinary the Regal GS is alot more common and better known, and because the LSS ride is friggin awesome -the looks are comparable to a Bentley (maybe not quite), but they look big (bigger than a GTP or Regal, but not quite as big as a SSEi, but the Oldsmobile badge gives it a easy kill look when it is not), sleek, can look mild-mannered and act bad-a$$ and are put together quite well).
My brother'* 1998 Olds LSS (L36) blows my 1998 SSE out of the water when it comes to ride quality, build quality, and interior'* snazzy look and comfort. I seriously suggest those who have a chance to ride in a LSS, especially the 1996+ to take the oppertunity. I don't like riding with other people (I prefer driving, and driving my own Bonneville is even better), but I take every chance I can to ride in that LSS.

I had been considering the Riv, but when I realised that they're even heavier than the H_ or C-bodies, I nixed it off my list. Beautiful car, great interior, but if I'm going to make it go fast I'd rather start off with a lighter car.

i agree. my son just bought a 99 GTP and loves it. I think it is nice too and boy does that sucker corner well. LOL!!! They are all good choices and what you like is what you will be happy with!
