Smile I'm back!

Well I finally got another Bonneville this morning.
It'* a 98 SE with 130,000 miles on it, and the guy basically delivered it to my front door. I paid $950 for it, and the only things it needs (as far as I can tell) are some brake pads, a new gas cap, wipers, and a good wash.

It doesn't look too bad for being from upstate New York, just a little rust on the rear doors.

I'm hoping to get it on the road by the end of the week.
