Default Bonneville that gave life for me(/w Pictures now)

Well my 92 that I worked so hard is no longer. Yeseter about 650pm Got into car accident With a 2000 volkgwagon golf. The golf was going the same way as me but was try turn from left lane. Swevered to try to avoid him only hit his left front corner of his car. Which torn up the entrie drive side starting from the front drivers door. When going over 4 curbs a boulder and big bush ,broke the driver front suspension, broke the engine cradle, front tire and rims, both tire rods, and becuase of how laned put the exhuast in twp peacies. I will post picture of the car in little bit and I am looking at a 2002 bonneville. All have to say is thanks to this board for helping my get that car running. It might sound werid,but because the time I spent on it felt like lose family member and I could not help my self but criing. I was listen to journey wheell in the sky when the accdient which was dubbed by freinds as the theme song for my car. If their was ever car to count on it that bonneville. I will post the pics after work today and post pic of the new car when pic it tommorrow

Glad to hear you are OK. Many of us have come to appreciate the safety of the Bonneville. It seems like you put a lot of work and effort in your car to get it back in shape. Most of us here certainly have grown attached to our cars and it is always hard to see one go down for the count.

A 2002 Bonnie would be a great car for you, plus we will be here fro you if it needs anything. Good luck!

Master, we are glad that you are safe, that is the most improtant thing....and the Bonne is dead, but she saved you, im sure that someone will be able to use the parts when the car goes into the junkyard, and the car can live on

Rest in Peace (insert Bonnie'* name)

Glad that you're okay, And I'll say this, nothing wrong with buying a N/A Bonnie.

Don't listen to the boosted people, they're high and don't know what they're talking about.

And to keep this on topic again, Glad you're okay and those cars are tough.

Yeah we are..... Got a problem?

Back on topic.... I am glad we have such durable cars, if not, I would be dead, since my uncle wrecked his in 1998.

You found out the one down side to putting a lot of sweat into your car. You get a bit attached to it. It'* a lot easier to let go of a car if you've never put a wrench to it, IMO. Sort of a detachment, if you will.

Glad you are OK.
