97 SE 106,000 mi

UIM 105K
Trunk Latch - fatigued around latch and had to replace. 104K
Water Pump, Serpentine Belt 103K
Brakes / Rotors numerous times.
Tires once. 70K

Needs struts all around. Cup holder fit for 4oz paper cups only.
Oh, and the amount of water that comes in the car (interior / trunk) when doors,windows, or trunk are opened... is a pretty bad design for wet/cold areas.
Nailed while parked on street once, hit by lost tire/rim once.

Bought in 98 at about 18K , all in all pretty awesome... and still looks good too!

Car looks good nimrod, but you need to decrease the size of your sig pic to falle within the guidelines.

My car is getting ready to hit the 200,000 milestone, just give me another month.

Work done:
Replaced whole climate control unit @ 100,000mi, cost 3,000 dollars!!!
The usual such as alternator and water pump.
Master brake cylinder about 10,000 miles ago.

And I cant think of anything else major that was done to the car, everything else is original sans vacuum lines and the like. It got major tuneups and been pretty peachy all along. Except for the horrid rust on the body, meaning even if the engine was good I will have to give it up someday. >:(

1983 Pontiac Bonneville Brougham
85,000 original miles on its Canadian-made Chevy 305 v8

Needs:

Appearance:
Rear bumper (the framework underneath, not the bumper cover)
Rear taillights (bent back bumper caused stress and cracked 'em)
3 out of 4 chrome trim pieces for the wheel wells
Fixed scrapes on passenger side (from previous owner), complete paint job to hide bondo
New headliner

Mechanical:
Automatic choke
Lifters
Rims (originals were overtightened, and are ruined)
(this car is mechanically SOUND, always has been.)

Already Replaced
All four shocks, two rear springs
Water pump
Exhaust valves
Pollution pump (bad exhaust valve fried it)
(Kinda all routine maintenance stuff)

I got this car 2-1/2 years ago with 40,000 miles. She'* the best darn car I've EVER owned. Even after months of storage, she ALWAYS starts, ALWAYS runs, and always gets me where I need to go. She'* earned her upcoming pampering.
