Ok then, let'* look at it this way, what'* the most amount of money you would put into this $500.00 car in parts and still come out saying you got a great deal.Again, I don't know the mileage or whether it'* a 94 or 95. Mick told me it exactly like my car, colour and rims wise. He wouldn't know to see it if it'* a 94 or 95 and I know about the headlight squirter.

Even if you look at it for kicks. Go look. No one says buy it and then feel like you must fix it.

I bought my Bonneville for dirt cheap! The one you've mentioned seems expensive! Then again, mine had 278K miles on it and was going to be donated. The car has come a long way, but that'* thanks to the previous owner rebuilding the transmission 20K miles before I bought it. It had been used to tow his yacht, and the previous two transmissions, I heard, took quite a beating.

The first thing I consider while buying used cars is the way the transmission feels while I'm driving the car. Since the Bonneville you mentioned has a slipping transmission, that would be a definite turn-off for me. As it has been said, it never hurts to look. As far as buying the car goes, I don't see why you'd need it. Is your Bonneville doing all right?

My son is a member on this forum and goes by the name of Mickman. He'* 18 and had been borrowing my Bonne for close to a year. I was hoping this one could be for him. I'm not in need of a Bonne, he is.

I just noticed your signature Bill.........you one funny guy.



As for "holler. I'll get the gang together and pull a trans", that'* to much to ask for. I've never pulled a tranny in a FWD but I can imagine it'* a whole lot of work, especially at a scrap yard under less than ideal conditions.
