Default If you hadn't bought your Bonne...

What would you have if you hadn't bought your Bonneville? What I mean is, what other cars did you look at?

This is what I looked at:
1978 Pontiac Firebird
1993 Pontiac Grand Prix
1968 Pontiac Bonneville (rough shape, asking more)
1994 Lincoln Continental
Purple 1994 Ford Thunderbird w/body kit
1995 Chevy longbed

There was a few more, but those come to mind.

CTS-V
My wife did not like the lack of trunk space.

Who says wives do not make the car buying decisions!

1994 Lincoln Continental
Thank god you didn't buy that. It is probably the most unreliable car on the planet next to the Yugo. Not to mention a 14 sec. 0-60 time. I looked at a 1995 BMW 750IL with the V12 before the LSS, but looked at the repair costs and then thought about my driving habbits.
