Default Got the fever

Up until few months ago the word Bonneville brought visions of a motorcycle. Then I bought the wife one. I like it so much that I'm now looking for another one for myself. Going to look at a '96 SSE later this afternoon.


So tell me............. is this like an addiction or something? Will it ever end?

It won't end until you put an "i" at the end of the car badge you're going to look at.

Sorry, I draw the line at any car that needs premium gas.

My other ride uses enough of that stuff. (see avatar)

Made my decision for me too. Daily driver + premium = Bad news for a college student.

Exactly, getting the "i" will make it worse.

But heck, premium gas for me costs $20 more a month than 87 octane and I drive 1800 miles a month. It'* not THAT bad. lol

EDIT: Not trying to turn this into a gas price thread.

Well, '96 turned out to be a missprint, it was an '89 in not too good condition.

However there is this '94 SSE about an hours drive or 1/2 hour flight away..............................................

An 89 labeled as a 96. They were way off! Good luck on your search!
