I would like to start out by saying a big THANK YOU to all of you on this board.

About a week ago, I got into an accident with my 95SE. Nobody got hurt, except for my Bonneville. The insurance company has written it off as a total loss. Unfortunately, I have to agree. The total damage was around $5500 and due to the age of the car and my finances, I have to agree. The car has been totaled by the insurance company and is no longer in my possesion. I must say, to the cars credit, that is was hit by a 98ish Toyota RAV4 and the Bonneville help up very well. So well that I will be buying another one in the future.... hopefully an SSE!

All in all my experiences with owning my first Pontiac Bonneville have difinately been a positive one. I look forward to my next one.

Thanks you once again for all of your help. Knowing that there is such a great group of people with such an intense interest in a certian model car is enough to make me want my next car to be a Bonneville.

I will be watching the For Sale forum and I'll post again when I have pics of my next Bonne!

I'm sorry to hear about your accident. Maybe you'll find yourself buying an 87-91 SSE .

Terribly sorry to hear about the Bonnie, man. I know I enjoy mine a lot, and if it was totalled I would be extremely bummed out.

SSEi'* can be had for not too much $$$ either. I have about $3500 or so into mine ($2200 for the car, the rest straightening out the mess left after someone abused it)

Buy from older, caring folks and avoid shady car lots!!!!!!!!

God bless.

Thanks guys! I've actually found another 95SE. It'* a nice looking car, like my old one. It'* a pretty blackish/purple color (factory color) with a grey interior and it'* a floor shift (unlike mine). It'* got 110k on it and I think I can get it for $1500.
