GM still makes the 6000's today, it's called the Grand Prix. Although the Prix is FAR less luxurious and sporty than the 6000's were. Grand Prixs don't have auto-leveling air suspension, 12-way power seats, or AWD like the 6000's did.
I love my 1990 6000 S/E AWD and I know it will last a LONG time. Great in the snow, great in the sun, and the ride/handling is up with the BMW 540i. It's an awesome car, and it's my lady in red :)
Just a quick comment. Pontaic grand ams were being built when they built the pontiac 6000.
I love my 6000 wagon. I just got it from a old neighbor who said he didn't have the space for it. it runs great a little hard to start, but I think its because the gas is old. but I had a 88 cutlass and ran poorly, this is much better, except on gas ;)
I completely agree with the a-body comment. I have had an '84 6000 and it wouldn't quit, even after I wrecked it. :( I now have a 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera with only 50,000 miles on it. I am a die-hard a-body fan, and I don't want anything else. Please check out http://www.a-body.net/forums/ for a message forum and lots of other info! :D.
Ummm... the "Grand Prix" is NOT the 6000. Good grief. It might have taken the same space on the dealer floor went it went away, but it was NOT the same car!
I was an itty bitty boy when these cars were being sold, and I LOVED them!! About 4 years old and fell in love with a black STE on the dealer lot! Ugh. I remember hearing the gentleman who bought it wrecked it two days later! Ooh I was MAD!
