Default Does anybody live in or near Fon Du Lac?

Is there anybody living in or near Fon Du Lac Wisconsin that would be willing to check out a car at a dealership for me? Iím in the Minneapolis area and it is quite a drive to Fond Du Lac.

I wouldn't feel comfortable asking you to drive 40 minutes just to check on the car for me unless you are heading there for some other reason and could swing in and take a look at it. I just posted a little while ago and I'll see if anyone is near by. Thanks Dan

Yes. The car is there. It is a 1999 Bonneville SSEi with 164,000 miles. Same color as mine.

Their nice there. If you need any help, I'm not that far away. If I'm free I could meet there and help you check it out. You should have seen the look on their face when I pulled out my lap top and plugged it in to the Montana.

I'll bet that was the first time they ever saw anyone do that! LOL! I talked to the Internet sales manager and she was real nice, but couldn't tell me much about the car. I'm calling again tomorrow and she will have a lot salesman call me back with a cell in his hand so I can talk to him and ask specific questions that he can respond to while looking at the car. I'll see how that goes. I've talked with the previous owner and he said there is no problems with the car. His wife drove it and they thought with 164,000 it was time to trade it in. If you Carsoup it, it is listed as an SSE. Pics look pretty nice.

It would certainly be an awesome sight to have "twins" in the driveway. LOL!
