Excellent score CM! And welcome to the curse

Any plans on what to do with your old Bonne? (Not sure if anyone asked that yet, I just skimmed my way down).

Somehow, I think you are going to make a few new friends with that car...or, at the very least, make them envious.

I got the SSEI so I could transition from "The Car That Wouldn't Die" ('95). i didn't want it to "go" and leave me in a have-to-buy situation. It'* a 25 footer as the clearcoat fades, but Liquid glass keeps it better than presentable. It has one nasty need also. The evaporator on the A/C has a leak in it that I have overcome with an extra can or 2 of al34a the past two summers, but I think its too far gone now. I can get an evaporator for $100, but from what i have read, it is a monsterous job to replace. Probably beyond my limited skills, and a shop wants $800.

Otherwise, it is an incredible object of persistance, performance and reliability. Some neighbors have kids coming of driving age who have shown some interest. I originally wanted to fix it up and donate it to the county Disabled Veterans. I know it is one of those magic 200k Bonnevilles. Although i couldn't risk a major failure, that kind of failure would still be completely unexpected given it'* current performance and care.
