This is my 96 Regal GS that I bought December 26, 1998.  It only had 22,000 miles on it and was in very good condition.  Since then I have tinted the windows, put on a rear decklid spoiler, and added a K&N air filtercharger.  The car performs very well for its size, as it is equipped with the venerable 3800 series II V6 engine rated at 205 horsepower in this application.  The engine generates a hefty 230 ft. lbs. of torque at 4000rpm.  This combined with one of the best automatic transmissions in the world (4T60-E), makes a very fun and dependable car.  The cars' many features include:  leather seating surfaces, power everything, 200 WATT Concert Sound II CD/cassette audio system, Gran Touring Suspension with larger 225/60R16 Eagle Goodyear GA's and stiffer chassis components, power moonroof, remote trunk release, and many more.  The car now has 39,000 miles and is still in beautifull condition.  One reason why I love this car so much is its rarity.  I have NEVER seen another Regal like this anywhere.  I have never seen another coupe with the same rims as these.  This car is so rare that a lot of people don't even know what it is.  In my opinion, the coupe aged much better than the sedan.
