I had posting problems and all my comments apparently didn't make it in here, so I'm adding them back now:
Steve, if you drive that car one more time in it'* current condition, and I find out about it, I will no longer help you work on your own car. This would be the 4th Bonneville you've destroyed, and you already have from your first major problem a month ago. That motor ALREADY isn't right from overheating. I gaurantee you have bottom end damage. You're making it worse now.
Park that car until someone PROFESSIONAL can deal with it.

The oil is still at the half mark on the dipstick and its thin.
Your oil is thin, low, and pressure is dangerously low. You're running insane temps again. The damage you started 2 months ago or so is now worse. And will continue to get there. My suggestion is to get the car fixed, and try to sell it immediately. But not on this forum. It will continue to get worse.
