Default Goodbye Bonneville :-(

Hey all, hows everything been going...it has come to the time where the Bonneville has come to the end of my and my Dad'* ownership. It'* at 149,000 miles and has an oil leak in the intake manifold and a leak in the transmission. The transmission slips sometimes and will have a bit of time getting into gear after a stop. So we decided that it would be best to give it away to charity...unless someone wants to make an offer by the end of this week? It has been a great car and I do not regret having it! Anyways in the mean time my Dad still has his 1994 SSEi and is still just as quick as ever He doesn't want to get rid of it because it still a great car. He just bought a 350Z about a month ago and loves that as well. So just before Christmas I bought a 2004 Infiniti G35 with only 13,000 miles on it. I love it and the power is amazing Anyways I just thought I'd say that this place was a great resource for taking care of my car and I'm really glad that I stumbled upon it. Thanks for all of your help and I don't think I would have had the same appreciation for my car as if I did not find this place. It will be hard to find a G35 forum that tops this one! So if anyone has a need for the car let me know soon! You can check it out at Car Domain with this link http://www.cardomain.com/ride/366054/8 Thanks again!

I was wondering where the hell you had been!

Sad to hear she'* moved on, but the G35 can be a great car used like you got. Get a manual or automatic? Coupe, or Sedan?

Damn. Your car is sweet. Hate to see it go to waste. Hope something will work out! Those L27'* are truly bulletproof.

I got a G35 Coupe and its an automatic with the manumatic shifting as well. I believe the tags run out this Friday or it might be the insurance but something like that and we won't be able to drive it. Charity is going to give us a tax deduction not sure how much...I didn't think anyone would want it with the leaks and stuff it has but before I posted this our neighbor was going to give us like $500 for it but he changed his mind. Let me know with a PM and we can work something out. Thanks!
