Default 1990 may be for sale

Wife is requesting a newer car so am considering selling the Bonneville and thought would see if anyone here is interested. Can take pictures above and below.

1990 Bonneville SE 140,000 on odo, 90,000 on engine (original engine block with dropped cam bearings also available)
30 mpg at 55 mph or 24 at 70+ (my driving).
No rust issues at all - garaged in central Florida for entire life (except for a few trips).
No fluid leaks
Gray crosslaced 16x7 wheels with 225x60x16 Michelin X-1s
Steering wheel controls & Automatic Climate control
Factory AM/FM/CD with steering wheel controls. Also have factory AM/FM/Cassette
NO explosives in front of your face.
A/C has new (1 year) Delco/Delphi H6 compressor and R-134A conversion professionally done.
Delco ignition system
180F thermostat
Oil and filter changed every 3,000 miles.
Everything works.
Car is in Orlando, Florida, 35 miles from southern terminus of Amtrak Autotrain (just took from DC to bring a car home for total cost of $219 - meals included.)
More at http://padgett.performanceresearch.us/cars/bonne.htm

$3000 cash or $2750 with 15" Pontiac alloy wheels and 205x70x15 Michelin X-1s. No trades.

Pretty much decided to just give to son and let him dispose of his 90 GA.

Tell son he'll learn to love it. It'* a free car and an awesome one at that. I'd make you an offer, but you're too darn far away...

I'd make an offer anyway, but it would seem that KBB on that car, if in excellent condition and loaded beyond what the description tells, is only $1,450 private party, $2,100 retail asking. So yeah, I'd make an offer, but it seems impolite to offer less than half of the asking price... And, I still couldn't justify driving all the way to Florida to pick her up.
