yeah, i know that the series 1 wasn't that common but i was up fir the task. all i saw was 225 hp and only 65,000 miles and i was sold. i don't want to sound like a dork saying this but i already have a list taped to my bulletin board in my bedroom listing everything i wanted to do to the car including engine work. the true 3800 */c car that i want is a Buick Regal GS. i don't care for Grand Prix'* because they're so common and the bonnevilles seem to be more expensive due to their extensive options list, especially on supercharged models. i think monte carlo'* are ugly, along with impalas. i'd consider a 2004+ grand prix but they're really expensive.

Well, her and I got in a big fight about this situation and we aren't talking anymore. took a drive by their house tonight and the bonneville is gone. i'm assuming it has made its final drive to the big highway in the sky. it really sucks for me because i was just beginning to enjoy this community of great people and had plans to go far with the car. i can't believe this all turned out this way and i am resentful of the circumstances that led up to it. i'll most likely check in once in awhile but i don't know enough about bonnevilles to really contribute and i no longer have one to ask questions about. Thank you to all of you who have helped me keep the car going since the *ex* girlfriend got it and its too bad i didn't get this problem fixed before her dad discovered it. the car had tons of potential and is going to make whoever got it happy for parts.

Sorry to hear things did not work out. Now..get up, dust yourself off and go look for another Bonneville.

Oh yeah....and maybe a new girlfriend also, but this time - car first!

ya know the good lord blesses us all in odd and fasinating ways...

maybe this is a blessing and you dont see it yet but will soon enough... the car was a lil busted THAT YOU KNOW OF... probably more and youve been spared the hassle

and if the friendship/relationship ends over an arguement cuz of a car then it wasnt strong enough anyways...

I think your better off this way and hopefully in the near future youll see it too and things will be on the up and up and youll get what your lookin for

just keep a looksie open for another bonnie so you can stay lol

thanks guys...i'm gonna do my best to stick around and keep learning. this is a great place to learn about warning signs if I ever come across another Bonneville that I fall in love with. I still haven't given up all hope on the '95 but I have come to terms that if I don't get it, its not the complete end of the world.
