Default How much do you drive your bonneville

Just kinda wondering how much everyone drives there bonnies and how many miles a week or whatever you guys put on them. I average about 250 miles a week. 14 Miles one way to work. Let me say I wouldn't wanna be driving anything else. Gotta love those Bonnies.

It is 18 miles round trip a day for work and usually a few more at night for shopping and food. I probably do a little over 100 miles a week. It goes by pretty quick though with the pedal being stuck to the floor and all.

I do 50km a day minimum round trips to work (31 miles) so thats MIN. 250 kms a week. Weekends and any other random driving, usually another 150km +

Usually, 400 km a week is not out of the question (250 or so miles).

I have yet to really "give the car hell" ie no red lining or pedal to the floor yet. 4200 RPM is about as high as I go...

I need her to last.

I'm pretty similar to SSEi95. Same miles, same speeds (maybe even faster.....I go home LATE and have the open road to myself).

I usually put on maybe 6-8 miles a day. With my old 88LE I can go a month without stopping for gas. With my old car im lucky if I get 7000 miles in a year. From last august to now my old bonnie got about 3700 miles on it. 2000 of them were my trip from South Dakota to Ohio and back. Went to Cedar point amusement park and had a riot. I guess my 98 SSEi will probably get the same kind of millage on it.
