Why not? Is the price and the condition ok? That'* the last year of the RWD Bonneville, until the GXP is released next year.

My 'magic book' covers that year if you need any parts.

Default condition

The condition of the car is almost mint. She is getting rid of the car because she got an older model Grand Prix. She said the interior is in great shape and the body and paint are almost like new the car is covered in chrome. The car I managed to get for free if I can come to her house and fix the upper ball joints on both the driver and passenger sides of the car and that is it.

DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know of many reasonably priced parts for that car and you can drop in an 8 without a big kit needed. That car will be an awesome experience with reasonable performance costs.
