Default I'm selling my Bonneville.

I didn't post this in the For Sale or Trade forum because im not doing an internet sale.

Today, I realised that no matter how much work I do to my car, I can't afford it anymore.
It was a hard descision to make, as I really love the car, and intended on keeping it for a while. So far I've invested over 3000 dollars into my car, putting my self more in debt with my parents then I ever wanted to be. A person would think that maybe after putting so much money into a car, things would start to get easier, well this isn't so.
So tomorrow, I'm going to clean it up really well, take my stereo, amp, and subwoofer out, and re-intsall my factroy stereo. Then im going to place an ad to run for one week.
Something along these lines:
1993 Bonneville SSEi
3.8L Supercharged, loaded, leather
ABS/Traction control, winter tires
246,500 kms

But don't worry, I'm gunna try the best I can to get another Bonneville, because I love these cars way to much to not own one!

My dad tried to persuade me away from a Bonneville a couple summers ago. He thought I "didn't need a big car." Long story short, that was the last time I ever went to a car dealership with him. I could have a mint 1999 SSEi now if it wasn't for him
