OK, so I'm looking around for a car. Don't know why, but I'm looking at cars. I found 2 that I liked. #1:1993 Bonneville SLE, fully loaded, imaculate shape, high miles. #2:1997 Bonneville SE, almost no options, ragged out, very low miles. I'm stuck here. Which would be a wise choice?

I don't have a boost gague. But I have a supercharger. An I don't " race". But boost, oh yeah. Sooo cool. The feeling when it goes and the sound. It just, is, like whoa. You here the whine and feel the car take off. Its worth having. I see alot of guys on here who wish they had it. And some even sell their car to get it.

I want to keep looking, but these 2 just kinda gave me this vibe. I dunno, I may drive the SLE and see what'* up. I want boost, but I'm not selling my car for it. I know this car has been taken car of (I know 2 previous owners), and I love the purple. I want purple boost.

Now that I'm thinking, my dad knows where there is an SSEi just sitting, and I have been looking for a project car, may check it out.
