Question Water Leak in 1992 Oldsmobile Achieva

Recently purchased a 1992 Oldsmobile Achieva for my son, knowing it leaked water onto the driver's side floor after a heavy rain. Thought we would be able to trace the problem to its source but have not been able to track it. Removed the vent grille at the base of the windshield and looked for any possible entry points that we could seal. Couldn't visually spot an area where water could get through. Would appreciate any advice from someone who's had a similar problem. Other 1992 GM cars such as Grand AMs, or a comparable Buick model could have the same problem, so if you've had a similar problem with these cars, I would appreciate any advice you could share.
Thanks

Probably just the weather stripping.

Have you tried having someone sit in the car and spray it with a garden hose..?
