Default am I crazy?

Since the Rivi'* been down with a dead battery, I've been driving the SSEi. and let me tell you... it'* love. lol. I'm thinking about trading the Riviera in for a 2000+ SSEi if I can find one for a decent price and I can get atleast 6,000 out of my car. Hoping I can find an SSEi for around 12,500 or so. Think it'* possible? Am I crazy to want to trade in the Riviera already when I've only had it for a year?! I just like the sportiness of the Bonneville compared to the Riviera. I don't need to feel like I'm old.. just yet. lol.

Are you crazy...... yes.

Should you trade the Riv for a 2000+ Bonneville.... only if it'* black.
Seriously.... it'* really upto you.... either way you've got a SC'd 3800.
So you can't go wrong...

I think that makes five...
Redneck status measurement= number of cylinders in all cars, trucks, tractors, lawn tools, generators, etc...
I'm living at my parents house and including the old motor that will be coming home with my Bonnie after the new motor goes in, we're up to 47...
I think that maves us, like, Redneck Royalty.

I think I have something worked out. I'll get my car paid off in about a year more, then after that, i am going to take payments over on my mom'* 2000 SSEi. It'* white, but it sure is a beaut and has 48,000 miles on it. My payments are $120 on the Riviera now, the Bonneville payments are $250. I'll probably keep the Riviera, and just buy the Bonneville off of her. She doesn't like it, she wants a Park Avenue. lol.

ssesc93 has a point.... you are still on the same drivetrain, only difference being the weight and gear ratio of the cars.
