Default I miss my Bonneville!!

Been at the dealership since Friday Morning, ive been driving my moms 02 Isuzu Rodeo since, its just not the same, she said its mine to use for the weekend , but i just dont feel like going crusin' in anything other than my Bonneville...Friday night on the way to work amd while outside helping gather shopping carts i counted 19 Bonnevilles Ranging in years from 87-03!! Tomorrow if its done, im takin her out to the carwash, spending some quality time with it! lol
Only down side is the cost of it all.

I miss mine too...

But I haven't seen it since 2001, when the tranny went, and I let her go.

Nothing I have driven to date has matched the raw power that baby put out.

Rest in peace my friend, rest in peace.

I can't wait for the day when I can afford one again.

Only reason I had one was a hand-me-down. Thank god I had the chance to experience one...

As you said, it is better to have experienced and lost, than to never have experienced.

With being able to charge for the "Top Secret" VATS stuff, I'm not suprised they charged that mauh. Not happy about it, either though.

Glad you got your wheels back, though!

Let me know what your car was doing for them to have to put the ignition switch on. Mine cuts off for no reason when I drive and I am thinking its the crank sensor.
