Default I did some math and...

Discoverd what the previous owner of my Bonneville spent on my car at one single shop that he always goes to. This car was maintained there and repaired there, everything from Oil changes to a new gas tank.
Reason for not adding it all up previously: I couldn't find the records until last night.

The PO spent $3256.25 This is from Oct. 2001 until May 2003
I have spent: $4556.86 thats not including oil changes, spark plugs, wires, msd mod, and belts. This is from May 2003 till May 2004!
I purchased it for $4400.00
Time for some more math
$8956.86 !!!

I also discoverd that the oil was changed evey 2.5 - 3 months. This is like 5000 miles however, and ESSO protec 10w30 and Fram was uses...ugh!
