Thanks once more.
First, some history. I had a 2002 Bonneville SSEi at the time, and loved it dearly. My niece was coming to stay with me while she went to school in this city, and needed a car. She wanted a Civic, as her boyfriend here was a Honda mechanic.
The GA was under an oak tree dripping sap on it in 2010, and I offered $800, got it for $1,000.
I painted it myself, then the Honda mechanic and I went to work, since he figured out that a V6 was much stronger than a105 hp Vtec.
HID headlamps and driving lamps;
LED turn lamps, markers, interior and side lamps;

Rebuilt 3.1 l V6 with new computer and programming;
Rebuilt 4T60e transmission with phase 2 shift kit;
Custom low backpressure exhaust;
Cold Air intake.
All window tint, 35-65.
Charged the AC with R134a, works fine.
Niece left in 2012, car went uninsured for a time. Truth told, I had never actually driven it since it was "finished" in 2011.
On March 31, 2012, a garbage truck ran a red light @ 35 mph (estimated by police) and destroyed my Bonneville SSEi. It literally saved my life, I should according to police, have been killed. They were impressed by the sheer strength of the Bonnie.
Upon my release from hospital in May of that year, I began dealing with the insurance company to replace it. This became drawn out, so I began driving the GA instead of caving in to ICBC (provincial insurance company).
That GA is more fun by far than the Dodge Charger that replaced the SSEi. It'* a rocket.
