I don't think i'll be taking it back. The bank account won't allow for it. With the tow and replacing the balljoint (myself ofcourse) i'm in $170 bucks. Add money for fabric to redo the headliner, around 300 to get the seats recovered, and another $100 or so for body work, and there'* no way it'* cost-feasible. The car'* almost 20 years old, and with the mileage on it it'* just not worth it. It'* a damn shame, because the transmission was just rebuilt. Unless someone wants good parts, motor trans anything, let me know, then i may consider taking it back. But right now it'* a no.

It seems like a sad end for a valiant car.

So, does this mean you will no longer own a Bonneville?

Saving up for another?

Looks like no, i will no longer be the proud owner of a bonneville. I'll still be in the pontiac family, the fiero is sitting in the parking lot down the block, and yes hopefully some day i will have another. Gotta get cash first.
