Default Help me Find a new bonny!!!

Hey everyone!

Been thinking about getting a new car lately, but I need some advice / help from the club

I would REALLY like to get myself a used 2001+ GMC Yukon Denali, but even used they are still in the mid-high 30'*, and I dont feel like having those payments right now. Another favorite on my list is a used 2000+ Cadillac Seville STS. These arent as bad as the Denali in price, but I'm a toy freak too. The cars are great.. comfortable, V8 power, etc.. but what can you do from there once you get it? No mods for the Caddy Nortstar (not like the 3800 anyways), and would I really want to experiment and mod a seville?

The 2000+ Bonneville'* are to small for my likings being 6'7" tall, so I think I have narrowed this down. I'd like to find a used 1999 Bonneville SSEi. Its gotta have everything (which most SSEi'* do), right down to the adjustable ride control suspension, and the selectable shifting modes. I'm prefferably looking for Black on Black Leather or Silver on Black leather. Low miles (in the area of 25k would be ideal, but more is ok), and I'm looking to spend about $10-15k.

If anyone comes across something like this in your area of the country, I'm just asking that you shoot me over an e-mail or private message to the dealers link, etc.. My '95 will also go up for sale on e-bay for whatever it books at, probably less. If anyone is interested, let me know. You can see it here Http://bonneville.flconveyors.com

Thanks everyone!!

Not having to much luck. I've narrowed my choice down to a 1999 only. Silver Exterior only, Black interior only, and must have EVERY option. So far I've found 2 in the northeast for sales, both SSEi'*, however neither had the automatic ride control suspension (bottom 2 buttons).

If anyone comes across an SSEi that meets all this, please let me know!

How about a 1957 Pontiac Bonneville with a 455 big block?

Just a word of advice about the Computer Command Ride: GM doesn't make the struts anymore, so they are becoming very difficult to find if they need to be replaced.

haha. Tell me about it!

Just a word of warning to everyone to.. DONT try to change your profile picture (like mine to the left). For some reason the server is messed up and keeps screwing up the image. Jeff and Will have both tried it too, so I know its not me.. Jeff is working on it and thinks he found the prob.

Lates!

Hey Chris,

My searching has found that an SSEi with all 5 buttons is RARE. I've never personally seen one. Best of luck on that one!
