I think we've high jacked this thread but on a serious note, it almost seems worthwhile to purchase a car in the States and bring it back to Canada. I wonder how much that would save ya. You would have to factor in the sales tax, exchange, customs, flight, hotel, paperwork,hmmmmmm gonna have to think about this one.

OK! Back on thread topic...

Mine has 157k miles on it now and I fully intend to get past 200k on it, barring any unforseen damaging incident. It is in great shape for the mileage and I've had little mechanically go wrong (alright, there was the upper and lower intake thing and the fuel pump, but that was rust).

Viva la Bonneville!! (despite the fact that they are discountinuing the marquee )

My Bonne owes me nothing. It'* still has the original exhaust timming belt, rear shocks, tranny, motor, front end, ( sorry I had one CV joint changed a couple of years ago). and many others. I luv this car, but it'* getting old. I want a new one.........

My first Bonneville was a '90 LE. I retired it at 352,000 miles. The drivetrain was still in good shape, but was having issues elsewhere ( needed front end/suspension work, windows not working, other little things). I still keep my eyes open for another. I'll have one eventually.

Well you've got me beat, I've never heard of a Bonne with that many miles on it before.

It owed you nothing also. Way do go!

My white 89 SSE went to 438, 000 KM- also with original engine, timing, tranny, front end...but then everything went at once.....
Was a great car though. I'm not letting my 91 go- love it. BUt the next car will be a 2003 or 2005 gen- Midnight Blue....
but only once there is proper storage for the 91
