Default End of a legend

The 98 is finally done. Too many problems have piled up and not made it worth time or cost to fix for me(tranny, power steering pump, fuel pump, alternator, oil sending unit).
The car has served me extremely well during my 6 years of ownership, it has seen and been through a lot.

Whoah!! So what is the plan? Sell the mods and sell the car with stock parts?
If so I call dibs on the 1.9'*, PCM, and FWI. Hopefully this doesn't come off as sounding rude.

Seth, I'll always remember that car as the best-styled Bonneville on this site. Sorry to others who have put a lot of time into styling... it'* just that I have always loved something about Seth'* car.

Make sure the car and/or parts go to a good owner, man. Glad I got to see it in person before it went away.

If someone wanted to buy the car I'd sell it, but it'* in far from good shape. There are a few rust spots showing up, interior is alright but has seen better days, there are no speakers and the car had been in a wreck which required a some frame work. The only really valuable items left in the car are the rockers/springs/pushrods, wheels and tires. So far it looks like just parting things out then off to a junkyard.

Hey Smelly, doesn't the 98 have the H.I.D kit in it? or did you swap that out on the other one?
