    It's a 2001 Grand Prix GTP. We've wanted one for long time and we were finally able to buy one. It has much quickness.:cool:

    It rides very nice. Has some torque steer, especially when that boost guage starts climbing! :grin: :wink1:

    Yep, it's a supercharged 3.8L V6. The 3.8 is a good motor. It was the one they used in the Buick Grand Nationals. I had an '86 Park Avenue with a 3.8 and it could scoot pretty good too, even without a supercharger.
