    My Grand Prix — it was a nice car, the handling wasnt too good though, i smashed it into a tree.... and someone elses car, i completely totaled it so it isnt too good with collisions, i drive a truck now, i miss the gas milage.... i had about 27 miles per gallon highway

    Pros: gas milage, not bad looking

    Cons: bad handling, or mabe im just a bad driver

    Pull Me Over Red — Another terrific car (I've had a few)... this one looked great, had more get-up-and-go than anyone would ever NEED (but everyone wants), and looked good doing it. Mine was slightly used when I bought it (only 15,000 miles on it) and the previous owner had swapped the factory wheels for 19" crome Neepers (sp?). That, combined with a VERY dark tint job on the windows made this pull-me-over-red sled quite the looker. I miss the old heads-up display as well. It did have a couple of glitchy electronics issues in the dual zone climate control that Pontiac always took care of under warranty. I chalked those up to it being a complete redesign for the "97 1/2" model I bought.

    Pros: acceleration, reliability, comfort, looks

    Cons: recalls

    A Pontiac Job Well Done! — I love the performance I get from this automatic transmission. Throttle response is got too. Nice and quick. The look of one in black is sleek and stealthy because it dorsn't look as powerful as it actually is from the outside. The fog lights are cool and useful too on those poorly lit roads at night because they're closo to the ground.

    Pros: Supercharger, Heads up display on windshield.

    Cons: sometimes fan gets clogged, makes noise.

    Love It — Love this car. I have owned alot of cars and I mean alot and this by far is my fav (I have the GTP). I love the fact that the supercharger allows me to swack the tires and show off. I love the four door grocery getter look with the horse power to impress. It is big enough for my almost 16 year old who is all leg to sit in the back and he's comfy. The only down side is that the trani is built for the hourse power it already has and not much more. Both my hubby and I have the need for big horse power and we both have this car (yes exact same year color) but he bumped the hp and blew his overdrive. That sucks, but over all I LOVE THIS CAR.

    Pros: everything

    Cons: trani

    Umm? — well i love the body style and how unique it looks, but i hate the fact that it needs a new tran and in my oppinion a new stero and speakers. It gets decent gas mileage and is a 6silender so its not too big not too small. the head lights suck though and the high beams bearly make a difference in my oppinion. It wasnt extremely priced so thats awesome too...all in all its a good first car

    Pros: decently fast, good gas mileage, reliable, compact

    Cons: too little of a back seat, engine space is too jammed together

    97 Grand Prix Gt — good car. Has been hit about 7 times and only one has done any damage and that was to the taillight. Always runs, has been a good car. Only problem has been with the ac, and the radiator was punctured when my mom ran something over, but that's about it. My parents definitely got their moneys worth out of it (in the 10 years we've had it)

    Pros: hardly any problems all 185k miles

    Cons: attracted to other cars lol

    An Ode To Johnny Cash "the Car In Black" — this is my first car, and is a car that I hope to keep all my life. The car's performance could be better but still enough to make your friends shut up. And the looks... it has tinted windows, black-out headlight covers, which all adds to the sleek black look. This is how my car got the name Johnny Cash. So far, this car has been reliable and wonderful on gas milage especially as a daily driver.

    Pros: looks fast, sleek, and sexy as hell!... and great on gas!

    Cons: a little sluggish.

    I Only Had It For A Few Months, But It Was Awesome — nice all around car

    Pros: withstood a crash very well, 70mph through a guardrail and down a hill, i didnt even get a scratch, it was fast and fun to drive, but still big enough to haul people around in

    Cons: I wrecked it

    Grand Prix — I like every thing it's a good reliable car, they are a lot of parts in order to modified this car, strong engine, great performance and gas, not so bad for it size, engine displacement and power
