Default '95 Park Ave vs. '99 SSEi

I trst drove a 1995 park avenue today in excellent condition and only 77k miles. It had the gran touring package. I thought it was a really nice solid smooth ride, but not great handling. How would a supercharged bonne compare in overal driving performance to this 3800 NA Park Ave?

It would have much tighter supsension and would be much faster.

IFunny I have Two Park Aveys sitting in backyard, still running fine -just dated. (And ya they steer a little loose for tuna boats, but you get the feel for it pretty quick. As for the comparison. Even the Park Ave */C ( rare) puts a stern whooping on the non */C so I imagine a slightly lighter Bonny */C would pass it like it'* standing still. Not putting them down though. Loved them in there day and cant part with them. I keep thinking twin engined Park Ave. One for the front wheels and one for the back wheels.

a park ave will only be a minimal ammount slower due to the extra 2-300lbs of extra weight, the big difference will be in the handling and ride quality.

you also have the series1 vs series2 difference between the 99 and 95

Ain't that the truth.
I waited for my fiancee to get off work this evening and wound up taking a 45 minute nap in the parking lot with the windows down
