I got my 2000 SE for $6000 and I didn't shop very much so you can find a deal if you look, if your interested in getting rid of both and getting a newer car

I've got a '94 Bonneville that my daughters have at University (I've got a 2005 Bonneville at home). It'* got about twice the mileage of yours and only requires a quart of oil every 1000 miles and regular maintenance. It went NORTH for University (Winnipeg, Manitoba) and had a block heater installed - starts fine.

Keep the Bonneville.

I can see Boosty'* point but only if the car has been sitting for a long period of time. Has it? I know alot of people that drive their cars regularly but dont rack miles. But a 3400 w/ 125k? Sell it while it still runs good enough to get a decent price.

I never thought of this from this perspective. I have a '94 F Body with 68K, & haven't driven it yet this year being grounded due to the State/County emission test.

One real thing to consider is how much exposure to winter has each had.... winters destroys a car mechanically & physically.
