Ours was a leased vehicle. We bought it when it was three years old in 2002. It had 29,000 on it at the time. Now has 158,000.

the 96 i owned was a rental car [alamo] in colorado [i believe] until it was auctioned to a dealer in ohio who used it as a personal car until he auctioned it to me. i then sold it to my brother with 210k on the clock, and hes driving it now.

the 04 was a rental car [alamo] in Reno, NV then auctioned to the dealership where i bought it three months later. i then sold it to a dealership in enid, ok where it sits now.

my current, the 02, was bought new from the lot by an elderly couple in Colorado Springs and registered in Oklahoma. it was sold when, due to sickness, the woman could no longer get in the car comfortably and they got an suv of some sort. i bought it less than a week later, and now its mine.

My 87 SE had like 15 owners until I found it on a farm in Fouke, Arkansas as a consignment to an auction for $450. Obviously driven on gravel roads often. I beat the living crap out of that car.

My 94 SSE was a rental for the first three years in Little Rock, Ark, then had 5 or 6 owners until I bought it from a salvage yard in Hot Springs, Ark. Then I bought it engine-less for $150, ripped it apart, stole the leather interior and sent it to a scrapyard only two weeks after buying it.

My 93 SE was bought in Tulsa, Ok and stayed there for seven years, Then in made a few owners in Ok, a few in Ark and a few in Louisiana until I got it from a coworker for $700. I swapped the interior, most of the suspension, Rebuilt the top end, and did about 200 hours of body work to get it it'* current state, A tired obviously youth driven contraption. But worry not, I have plans for the L27. The rest of it will soon see a scrapyard.

When I got my title I found out the guy before me from Chicago originally bought it. But he traded it in to a ford dealer, then it went to literally 7 other dealerships before she came home with me. So my bonne has been around lol

I think my car came from someone that liked Rust...
Cuz the paint looks like someone took mop with sand in it and washed it.
And they next kept up on the rust...

all i know is i got it from a Guy in Willamson, NY the was a member of BC for like 2 months befor he Sold the car to me. He got the car 4 or 5 months befor i got it from him from a Auction place.
From then i dont know much, all i know is it spent 99% of its life in NY so that most likly why it has so much rust on it :(

I married into the Bonneville family. It was purchased new by a school secretary (who worked with my then-future wife) in '93. My future wife (unknown at the time) bought for like $6500 in '99 with 75,000 on the clock. We met in '02 and married in '04. She now drives the (newer and mine) Saturn, and I drive the Bonne. I tell her it'* because the Saturn is newer and more reliable; but she knows I enjoy driving in the comfort of the Bonne! It just rolled over 180,000 miles! Long story short...we are the 2nd owners.

My dad bought mine from my local GM dealer with 4 miles on it on New years day 97. He went to get an Impala SS, but he liked the Bonneville and sat in it, he said they made him a deal he couldn't refuse, and they would not come a dime off the SS. 280000 miles later he gave it to me because they only offered him $500 for it trade in.

Mine was purchased at #1 Cochran pontiac in 2000 by an elderly gentleman, he traded it in this year for a Lucerne. Had 41K on it and is immaculate. Traded in my 2000 Seville SLS with 67K on it. Got a great deal and got a GMPP thrown in (which I have used to fix little stuff to get the car perfect.) I am going to turn it into a garage queen and get either a new 07 Escalade or Denali
