I really hate this freakin economy

i want to thank you guys for all your input. Unfortunately, I was unable to get the Aurora. Due to unforseen circumstances (money) and the fact I was a victim of identity theft, I couldn't get the car. After straightening out the situation, the car was already sold. Jim W., you would have loved it. It was like looking at a twin. It was a 97 Tri-coat pearl white with tan interior and sunroof w. autobahn package. No changer or bose system. Anyway, due to my other-half mismanagement of money (wives, gotta love em, can't kill em) I decided to hold off on purchasing anything right now. Besides I still have my old reliable "RED ROVER" 90 Bonneville SSE. I bought it for 600 bucks and I had to change a few things (muffler-$100, computer-$25<junk yard>, ICM, coil packs, A/C charge up, and tune up) and the car has been running for year and half flawlessly.

Gm rules


BTW, for what it'* worth:

I would have gotten the Aurora due to the 4 doors and the NA engine (superchargers will probably burn out sooner). Maybe later on I'll get an Aurora (maybe or an 01 with the N*8, 3.5 V6 in big car scares me).
