I bought my grand prix as my first car and i paid 600 bucks and put about 2 grand in it and totally customized it inside and out. Tuned 3.1, fresh paint, custom exhaust, American racing 16's. It's so fun to drive, it hugs the road and never has any problems getting up and going. It can smoke deep dish 16'' tires easy. I love my custom grand prix!
My favorite thing is the power house 3.1 liter V6 books rate it at 140 but it's putting down way more than that
the only thing that i would change is the fuel economy. 20 mpg is about 20 bucks in the tank every three days when you run it at about half throttle or better
