Funny how I too was lookin at a STS before I chose the Bonnie.. it seems a lot of ppl lookin at the STS somehow looks into the Bonnie too..
Yup, I think thats pretty common, because it is the same basic car. My mom was looking at the STS before getting her SSEi, she decided it made more sense to get the SSEi because it was basically the same car as the STS, and $20,000 cheaper.

I went to a carlot looking at a '93 Cadillac STS, but it had too many small problems so decided too leave it be,
Well, if you could've convinced the dealer to sell it to you for cheap it wouldn't be a problem to have a bunch of small problems. My grandfather bought his '92 STS for $1000, with 160,000 miles on it about 2 years ago. It is loaded, with perfect paint, no dents or anything, and didn't need anything, it has 160k so it needs the regular occasional repairs, but it is in great shape, maybe I will post a pic of it soon. It has the cloth top too. He has a friend that owns a dealer and bought it at an auction for $1000. Well, he got his friend drunk and convinced his friend to sell it for what he had in it. It is definately one heck of a car for $1000.

Anyways, WELCOME, and enjoy your Bonneville!!!

Wow, I'll give him $1200 & a case of whiskey, so he'* drunk and ahead

I'm not giving up on a STS, just cost wise in my present status the bonnie is a better choice,one day I'll come across an amazing deal (like your grandfather did), till then, I'm just enjoying cruisin in the bonnie.

thanks for the welcome
