I tell you one thing for sure, i would certainly buy a 87-91 Bonneville LE SE SSE, they sell for really cheap around here now, make GREAT winter cars, and are pretty reliable.
Good find.

I'd have to agree with you there... 250K, is a lot of miles... And it still runs/Moves

Nope they didn't make that many for 91... Not sure whats up with thos numbers... Never noticed that before... in 1991 the LE were the majority of all the 91 Bonnevilles...

I'll have to look for the numbers, But 91 was in short supply for the SE and SSE as they were tooling up for the 92 model year so production ended early on.. I'll have to do more research on that...

You know the totall of those numbers is correct as for the number of bonnevilles made...

But I'm a little lost with there being 2000+ SE'* and 5000+ SSE'*... Wondering if those 2 numbers are inverted...

If they had 2000+ 91 SSE'* than we need to see more 91 Members....LOL

Hey congrats on the new wheels Don!!!
For sure do a L27 in that thing. Heck, if you can get a little turbo kit put together with it you could make for one more crazy 91 SSE (Merlin'* turbo'ed 91 SSE, Randman'* 91 SSE with Series II L67 conversion).
Combined with the 3.33 gearing a turbo L27 would really be awesome. Would have to kiss that tranny bye-bye very shortly though.
