You guys are being way way to critical. This car already has some serious performance mods. Someone obviously spent ALOT of time and ALOT of money modding this beauty. Im suprised she'* not listed on intense for her track times. I mean you have the front passenger side turn signal removed, which as we all know provides better air flow to the more than likely gutted airbox, (on the other side of the car) along with several other intake mods done to the front end. I love the custome radio buttons with the nastalgia look. The ZZperformance inner cabin temperature sealant strip, the +30hp racing seat covers, the borla rear "welcome mat" style floor mats(+69 hp) and the absolutely amazing dirt/rust stripped paint job, which could have only been done by chip foose or some car building legend like that. We have a rare find on our hands here gentleman and i think anyone in that area would be a fool to pass it up.

"Minor body damage some some wear" Whatever......have they not seen all the damage this car has?


New Grill...Hood body work



New Radio....Yuk!



Duct tape holding up the glove box



Probably don't want to know how those seats look under the covers...ik



Ok apparently ever car they sell comes with a free used can of brake fluid



And if you look closer, not only do you get a can of brake fluid you get a bottle of some sort of air freshener spray.......like thats going to help! Probably to cover up the grinding caliper into rotor smell



Hmmmm...did they lose the door in a windy day? door fender crease




classic redneck fix here....screw shooter into bumper to hold it up...large bead of smeared silicone to help hold it up....or is that rust proofing?



Yeah sure...."some signs of normal wear" right! oh it will just buff out...



Not to mention those rims are from a....Pontiac 6000 maybe?


Hard to tell if there is any coolant in the res tank...but given the present condition of the car I would suspect not.....very near UIM and LIM job!



Miles on OD 242.402

$2,995.00 maybe the $2,900.00 was a fat finger and meant to put asking price at $95.00
This cracked me up!

I'm tempted to wax politcal because the Chicagoland area where this stealer, uh I mean Dealer, is located is where our President is from. I could also start drawing some analogies between this vehicle and the legislation that our President has backed and pushed, but then this is a CAR forum not a Political forum, so I'll show some restraint.

I am simply amazed at what some people will try to sell. I wonder if this dealer is offering to finance the car at this price? I have known someone that used to work for a used-car dealer that would sell exorbitantly priced cars with the old "Buy here - pay here, and we'll finance anyone" routine. Usually by the time the down payment and the first or second monthly payment was made, the dealer made back whatever they paid for and put into the car to get it in running condition. Hopefully the car would run for that long (usually came with a brief warranty too), but even if it got repo'd within the first couple months, the dealer still made a profit! Some racket!

Merry Christmas to all!

So...who'* the idiot here? The person trying to sell it for that price, or the person who would buy it at that price?

Kudos to the seller if they can get that for it!

You know, I hate to see a Bonneville die. Same as a good dog that'* been with ya for 10-15 years. But there comes a time when you have to be a "Man" and take something down the road with gun in hand, tell it how much you've enjoyed it'* company, that you love it. And going to end it'* suffering quickly........

My old Ford Probe: (yes this was my own car, on my own land, and we pulled it in front of a good back stop before doing this. DON'T EVER just go shoot up someone'* old car out in some field.) We were wanting to see what different loads in various calibers would do to glass and metal. It really taught the kids a good lesson in always knowing what is behind your target when they saw the exit holes on the opposite side of the car.
