Ha! And you guys are wondering who would buy that car, eh? Apparently, you got those people with some 'funky' taste are buying them...otherwise, this car would have been outta the market few years ago.<P>That's the same thing I wonder about Pontiac cars...who in the world would want to drive these ugly cars...?

Where did GM find its stylists? Stumbling around in the alley behind the factory? Is this some kind of secret plot by foreigners to undermine American car styling?<P>Every automaker turns out an ugly duckling once in a while, but GM has laid a bunch of eggs every model year for a loooong time. <P>

I think they probably hire those starving 1st college students who were majoring in abstract art or something. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P>Or just a big conspiracy of testing American cusumers' patient~!!<P>"Let's make our cars as ugly as it can get, and see if they will still buy it."

Why are ALL GM cars ugly? Even the Corvette! The beauty between a Viper and a Corvette is day and night! I do not understand GM.

I really could've swore I read somewhere that the Sunfire was going to be discontinued. Apparently, someone came out with a uglier design to make it more appealing! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">

This is just a freshening of the current, <I>ancient</I> Sunfire, right? This thing should have been put out of its misery long, long ago!

The phrase "bats in the belfry" comes to mind when I see those amber lamps in the "nose."<P>Gawd, I thought this thing was going to die! Maybe we can only hope for the '04 model year I guess.<P>

You guys are right, the Pontial Sunfire Coupe will be no more after 15 months. I am not sure why they spent the money redesigning it since it won't last very long. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>-Drew

Although they are planning to discontinue this model in about a year, they want to see the response to this to determine if they come out with the same model you see here, with a different name. You know GM is famous for putting out the same old s*** with a different name.

I dunno if this is how you guys see it but to me the sharp lines on the front mostly around the grille do not go well with the rest of the curves of the car. And as for the curves, its mostly the back and the sides. The front on view doesnt look bad. They just should have carried whatever inspiration for the front throughout the entire car.

Yeah, the J-bodies are being laid to rest in 2004 and supposedly replaced with cars based on the Opal Astra - maybe with very little sheet metal differences. The funny thing about GM is that the Opal/Vauxhall line in Europe and the Holden line in Australia are filled with solid designs, I just don't understand why they can't get it together in their home market.<P>cheers,<BR>scott<P>
