Default I didn't want to trade my Bonne for a hybrid but *ITS HERE*

I had to with the way gas prices are these days. Even with them lowering reccently gas is just to expensive. So today I drove the Bonne for the last time to the Toyota dealership for a trade-in. And I know i've had a hundred times I owuld never drive a Toyota, and I dont want to, but I really have no other choice.

Some pics of the new ride: :(
































Just kidding, I am the new proud owner of a 1998 Bonneville SE later this week if everything checks out alright. I am taking it to from the dealer I am buying it from and getting it checked out at a Pontiac dealer and body shop since it has been in an accident. Here are the basics:

2 owners, doesn't smell like smoke
Tan interior with leather (where are the heated seats???)
Gold crosslaces
Auto climate control
CD player w/ steering wheel controls

And the list goes on, but here are some pics the dealer took:

Nice! Yeah, if you really got a hybrid, was going to have to inform you that the total cost of ownership is more for one of those than a straight gasoline car!

Congrats! Would love to pick up a sharp car like that myself.

I thought '98 was the first year that Pontiac switched to the SSEi style cladding for SLE'*. Maybe I'm mistaken - the options look identical to my '97 SLE though

Must be a SE w/ SLE options? BTW what does "lock out" mean on the trunk where the air commpressor hook-up is? But it doesn't have the air and air struts though.

or just an 1SC SE....either or...just check the RPO'*....

the lockout is for the trunk button on the door....it will disable the button on the drivers door.....more for a saftey feature when the car is valet'd

Looks like an SE with SLE options, driving lights gave that one away.

Looks nice, hope every thing works out for you, enjoy her

Driving lights, pin stripes, and dealer badge will be gone once my dad and I have full ownership, by the end of the week.
