Odometer reading 157,000 miles....253-254,000 kms
I HATED THAT CAR SO MUCH
not in a million years do I EVER want it back.
What do I drive now, well, 3 weeks ago I purchased another 93 SSEi 98,000 miles, mint.
Had an Alero in the mean time
Oh dont feel to bad, I bought a 94 Cutlass Supreme for 4000 dollars, drove it 20 miles, threw a bearing on a piston rod. Screwed the motor the day i bought it (three weeks after i sold my Bonneville) and now it would need A VERY expensive motor job as GM does not manufacture that block anymore. So it sits in my back yard as we speek.
