Another "what'* it worth"
Well, consulting the experts again.
Looking at a 1997 Bonneville SSEi (black on black).
It'* high milage -294,000 Km (182,600 Mi).
According to the add "In the last year, the car has had brand new brakes (all around, as well as a couple new lines), wheel bearings (front), alternator, starter, and a few odds and ends here and there put on it. This car has never been raced"
He'* asking $2,500, or best reasonable offer.
I would have two main concerns with that... the tranny, and the suspension. And probably the LIM gaskets. I just dropped a good chunk of change on the '96 redoing the suspension, I really don't want to do it again. From the pics the body looks like it'* in excellent condition.. definetly something I'd go and do a thorough inspection on though.
I'm thinking of offering $2,000 if it'* in good shape. What do you guys think?
My '96 runs great so I'm in zero hurry whatsoever. I have a tossup of going for an older SSEi (of which I love the looks WAY more), vs. the more expensive but probably less problematic newer ones.
