Default America still has muscle

I love my bonneville. I wanted one for years and finally got one. It'* only a lowly SE But,It'* lived up to all my expectations. Power,Handling and best of all the body lines.
Going down the interstate at 2500 rpms passing most everything on the road. Give it alittle gas and I'm going 90-100 and this car loves it. I don't abuse my car. It just likes to go fast. It takes the on ramps fast and smooth. I love passing a rice burner at such low RMPS.

Wait until you start some engine mods. Then you'll really love it.

Got that right My SE has nothing but power. I was suprised the first time I had to get on it. There is nothing lowly about it.

Absolutely! I love my 99. I can even tell a huge difference between my 93 and 99. 93 is getting a little tired (transmission is slipping, etc.)!!

i love my supercharger, you are right, the torque is awesome at the lights. You can waste most cars on takeoff.

Now if they will only SC the new V8 Bonneville !!
