Default I got a mission for yall

Alright so my dad just got remarried today. His wife is coming to the U.*. from iceland. Shes gonna get alot of things done, including getting a new car. I need your help to search for the perfect bonneville. Heres some more info...
He lives in the kansas area (around olathe) . a bonneville thats 2000-2005 (VERY preferably a SSei) within 140 miles distance. My dad is uneasy with dealer owned cars, so try to find a by owner if possible) I don't know what to look for in a bonnevile, but its gotta be low mileage (under 100k would be nice) and no "white curses" (if you know what i mean :P)
I come to you guys because You know what to look for when buying another bonneville. for me, I gotta learn some more (my dad gives me the hint of this being my passdown, so pick one with me in mind too )

Thank you guys, hope to get one by late Janurary or early Feburary.

I would go on craigslist and go to that city, then type in Bonneville for a search.
