Default For the life of me, I cannot find any '92-'99 Bonnevilles!

Hi everyone, I just found the site about a week ago, and just registered a few days ago. I've been searching for a '92-'99 model Bonneville with low(ish) miles for about a month now. I'm looking for one with less than 90,000 miles. The Bonne search stems from my Dad owning one about 8 years ago when I was a teenager. I loved the car then and finally have some money of my own to spend, so I decided that this was the car for me.

Basically, I've been checking the local classifieds, the internet, and ebay. Nothing in my area. I'm guessing that I'm doing all I can do right now, and just have to play the waiting game. I figure you guys are experts though, is there anything you guys can think of?

Are these cars just that damn popular?

Is everyone keeping them?

Thanks. Glad to be a member of the forums.

The best thing to do is expand your search area on autotrader. I'm sure there would be a member close enough to check it out for ya

Hah, It seems that way doesn't it? I see probably in excess of 25-30 a DAY around my area, yet there are NONE for sale Go figure. They're a great car, people drive em till they die. Tons of super high mileage ones in the JY.

Whereabouts are you?

I'm in Wisconsin, near Milwaukee.

Actually found an SE about 30 miles from me. I'm going to go look at it this weekend and hope for the best.

Thanks.

Haha, yeah, there are two within a mile of me. Not for sale of course.

I think I'd be happy with any of them. I'd probably prefer an SSE.
