Don't under value that car. There are some that would pay $4,000. for that car.
Good job fixing it up.

Raise your price

That'* awesome! What an amazing touchup job you've done. Really, really fine work.

Since the car is so clean, I spent some time looking for differences between my 94 and that 95. You have the cobra head shifter that came in the late 90s, and my 94 came with a thumb button shifter. The steering wheel is charcoal, as were all the late 90s, but mine came in the same color as the rest of the interior leather. Now, aside from headlight washers, I have another way of telling 93 and 94 from 95. Thanks!

That'* a really strange tape deck. It has the same 7-band equalizer as my 99 SLE does, but there'* a tape deck?! Interesting. I thought SSE and SSEi models came with CD players, and the 00+ came with both tape & CD if they had the SSEi trim.

Based on all the previous threads, I'm surprised you didn't get any jokingly threatening replies about the $50 JY deal. Did I miss some? That car was dirt cheap! I thought my 94 SSEi was a good deal, but that supremely demolishes me. Well done.

I'm going to show a friend of mine that pulling technique. It'* absolutely hilarious! I think it'* amazing how you guessed a good angle to pull it. Was it a one-shot job with no second tries or afterward banging into just the right position?

This is about right. His standard formula as I figure it...

Haro'* price x 1,792.5% = What the rest of us would expect to pay.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
I would start advertising at $3,000. admonishing the features and exclusivity of this car.
Then you have room to negotiate down to $2,500.
It'* worth that much.

You have to understand how popular Bonnevilles are around here... however, I think I will start at 3k just to make you happy

Duralast battery, but I only paid $6 for it The positive battery bolt was replaced for $2 because it was stripped.
