I remember driving that beast a few years ago in the winter. Felt like I could go through a brick wall.

When do I get to test drive it again?

Yes. We found out from trailering her in an ICE STORM that the limited slip does, in fact, still work. It'* a beautiful thing.

You've got my phone number, and you're one of the precious few I'll let drive Anytime, Kyle.

Thanks, Azu! I don't think you were around yet when I last had her out of storage! I love showing her off to people who haven't seen her before

I can't believe somebody remembers that And yep, still is.

GonneVille, the Bonn was actually first put in storage because I got a big ol' Chevy pickup. I got stuck with the Neon when my significant other at the time decided he'd rather drive a pickup truck than a purple Neon...

I would love to see that car tuned up and pushing out as many videos as we can watch! The 305 is a really nice engine, and with a few tricks here and there, you can absolutely surprise some people. With all that storage, that car deserves to be show quality under the hood.

As of last night, my Bonneville is once again my daily driver. We found out what the overheating problem was...the last person to work on the cooling system put the thermostat in UPSIDE DOWN. Poor car. She came to work with me this morning for the first time in two years. Runs well, just really, REALLY needs a tune-up

My lumina, on the other hand, just looks like a really BIG snowball

I think my great grandmother (the last owner of the car) would haunt me if I tried Appearance is going to come first for me, since this is a 100% stock car as of yet...but there'* been some body damage (there'* ONE ding that'* my fault, the rest is either previous owner or somebody hit me). My back bumper is in a bit of a U shape, and there'* some scrapes down my passenger side. Still a gorgeous car though!
