Sorry to hear about her!! You can always find a Bonneville to replace her though! Just think a new SC Bonneville and a brand new smile on all are faces! She was a Beautiful car and will be missed!

I most likely will save up money and get a cheaper car for now. I tried to get a 2002 SSEi but it'* way too much, and it would be stupid to get that kind of a loan now. So I will probably get my neighbor'* 94 Cutlass Supreme SL. It has less than 50,000 miles, and it'* black. Very well maintained apparently, paint is very nice. I've always liked the style of them too. Plus, it'* only $3,000. I will talk her down to $2,750 since KBB says it'* only worth $2,800 if it had 40,000 miles. Only thing is I'll have to get a new battery since it'* been sitting in the driveway for months (my neighbor died last Fall, so her daughter is selling it). I'll keep you guys updated. If only I could swap Runner'* 3800 in it

It is no Bonneville but I am willing to bet that you will love that car too. I had a 1990 Cutlass Supreme SL, both Renee and I loved that car. Tam and Drifter seen that car when I first met them in Ottawa.




You know I kinda miss that car. OH and if it has the same rear window on it and you want to tint it, good luck, most places will not touch them ( rear window).

And yes that is the rear corner of the Bonneville in the first pic and you can see a side shot in the second.


EDIT: Hey Pete that Cutlass have a sunroof??If not then you better get one installed.

DR.... so sad to hear about your loss.... :(
But I'm glad you are alright.

DR will be missed.... hopefully someday you will own another Bonneville.

In the meantime the 94 Cutlass Supreme SL sounds pretty good.
If a drivetrain swap is possible, that would be a really cool way to continue with Drug Runner. Besides drivetrain, I wonder what else you could salvage and merge into the Supreme....

In any case... sorry again to hear about your loss.... but I'm glad you are ok.

I'll see what I can do. I have a set of fogs for a 93 (stock ones), but the ones from DR are the angel eyes. Plus it'* a pain to take those Angel Eyes out...lol. I can ship you the stock ones (they have Silverstar bulbs). But I have to wait until insurance looks at it tomorrow and see what I can take from it. Maybe I can keep the car too, I'll find out. Would be nice to use as a parts car.
