    What's your preference?

    I've got a 2000 sc2 that was gonna be my forever car....... until today when I was offer ed a fully loaded 01 sc2 for trade. Everything from pleather to sunroof, oem mudflaps, one owner car until last year. I'm slightly partial to the third gens but I've grown fond of the 2nd gen body. Just curious what's everyones favorite ?

    2000 should be a 3door too. 99 was the optional year for them IIRC.

    2000 being a weird one with 3rd gen everything but the skin. But not quite as weird as the 99s.

    For the SC, I very slightly lean toward the 3rd gen. Being fully loaded is a plus for the one you have available as well.

    Of the two, third gen, granted the sunroof is a liability on these cars, only have had 3 for 3 break and leak.

    That said I also agree that first gen is best gen.

    Have had my 01 SC2 since new in 00, it exists only to be tube framed and turned into a GT race car, my first gen wagons are the actual drivers, and if given the chance I really want a 91-92SC to finish my collection.

    1g coupe, 1g wagon, 2g sedan

    2g/3g coupes are turrible

    There is no upside to a sunroof in an S car. They are noisy, they leak, have less headroom, the break, etc.

    I like them all. Although I'd prefer 1st gen everything. Except for the automatic seat belts.

    Pop ups are the best part of first gens. Unfortunately they are rare birds to find not beaten to death. Should have kept my 95.
