We love our 97 SE. The engine is all that you've heard and more. It wont plant you in your seat like a '69 Z, but the power and torque range is broad and smooth. You can cruise at 60 and pop up to 80 to pass and the car just leaps ahead while maintaining a civil ride. The handling is quite good also and the car squats nicely under braking (4-wheel disc), with very little pitch. Not the biggest interior or trunk, but hey, when you're having this much fun, who cares!
