Default The Bonneville Stays.

After giving it much thought and realizing all of the things that my fiance wants to do after we are married (house), I've given in, and have decided to keep my 93 SE. There are a number of things that I don't like about the car, but mechnically, it'* excellent, and it'* damn easy to work on.
I've really had to detach myself from my love for cars to make this decision. The 93 SE is a decent car, but it is by no means a great car. My biggest complaint is the interior build quality. You can't take anything apart in the interior without it sqeaking or creaking afterward. I hate plastic retention. There are ways around that, although it takes a serious amount of time to remedy.
It wasn't too hard to detach myself from cars. Computers are really what I like to mess around with the most.
I think of this decision as some almighty force telling me that I should keep the car. Like the car is bound to serve me well, I'm sure. I guess that after the wedding (1 week from yesterday), I'm going to have to get cracking on the repairs and interior. In addition, there'* a great deal of regular maintenance that is coming due soon.
