I might have to make a trip down there just to witness this (given that those #'* are for real -hell even if the motor and trans were changed it'* still impressive for even the car to last -wonder how many times the suspension'* been worked over?).

That is a lot of miles. I thought the '94 Grand Am we work on frequently in my auto tech class with 360,000 miles on the original 3100 and 4T60E was a lot, apparantly thats nothing compared to this. I would like to see more info on this.

I know.....I was floored when I heard about it, but I was too busy today and oddly enough I didn't have to go to Heintz....or Mankato for that matter. So I couldn't do any investigating of my own, I woun't be around there until tuesday again next.

I went over to Pontiac, searched the Pontiac lot, the used car lot, the side lot with smashed cars, even the Toyota lot, the Bonneville in question was not found. I went into service becuase my car was acting up, there were no Bonnevilles fitting the description in there either.

Heintz either sold it, or it is the Bonneville that never was.

Could be out on the road.
Need to ask if anyone there drives a early 90'* Bonneville with noteably high mileage.
