Default All i want is...

I really want a 95 Supercharged SSEi, Its either that or i am gonna find a Taurus SHO, This will all happen in near future. My bonny cant hang with my friends SHO and i cant stand that he wins all the time. I understand my car is heavy and 600 pounds heavier than his. I got a 92 SSE N/A. Its just this big thing me and my buddy have going on, and alot of ppl think my bonny joke because i could barely beat a 99' Oldsmobile Sillohoutte Van for heaven sakes! the thing kept up with me! i beat it by 4 feet. My bonny has 170hp. The Van incident was the last straw and i can get maybe $3,500 outa my car, and if i save up a bit i can have maybe a total of $5,500 by the end of this January. Anyone know what a 95' SSEi will run $$$ wise??

Go for the '95 SSEi (although I may be a little partial on this one ). I have never regreted getting it and it does MOVE. I may not be the most powerful Bonneville out there but (if my memory serves me right) it is one of the lightest Bonnevilles that are '92+. I test drove a mid 90'* SHO before I got my SSEi and the Bonne is faster.

Why just settle for an equal car to his when you can get one that will school him!?

As far as pricing, you are probably looking towards the $9000 US range. Might be able to find them cheaper or with less options.

BTW: Aren't some of those mini-vans running with 3800'* now too?

Most run 3.4'*! Which have more raw HP than our 3800'*.

BUT costs 2X as much to fix it though....So I guess we win in the end (wallet stays in our back pocket longer)!
