Default another addition to the family!

We (my mom more specifically) just bought another bonneville! Its not the SSEi i woudl have liked, but we couldnt pass up this deal. its a 96 SE, 200 kms, not a spot of rust, oil sprayed every year since new, 4000 dollars of work just done to it in the last year with records to prove, (upper intake, transmission replaced, other little things) , garage ept during winters, an old man and his wife took very good care of it. All for 3500 Canadian certified. Its dark brown/silver. Ill take pics of her when its light out, I just took it for a drive and I am impressed. Its such a solid quiet car. Its just base mind you, no leather or HUD or anything but its in such good condition. I put it to the floor and it defnately has more kick than my 90. So smooth too. This car will be off limits to mods, but its good just the way it is. So im just sharing the good news! Now ill have reason to take a peek in the 92-99 section other than */c envy :P

I believe he is refering to the undercarriage. Oil keeps the underside form rusting. I hear though, that it is not fun working under one that'* been sprayed.

I was thinking along those lines too, and I would imagine it would be fun under there. But then I've never worked on one that has been spray so I couldn't say for sure.

By oil spray I mean that it gets holes drilled in the rocer panes and other places and oil is sprayed inside the body fo the car to prevent rusting. We have a 1990 240sx that was driven all year round, kept outside, but it was oil sprayed religiously every year and it is in absolute perfect condition rust wise. Its nice to have, but if you dont wipe the old oil pff from time to time it builds up and makes a hell of a mess to work on it. Ill be getting pics up when i can get some day shots
