Default My 89 Can Still Get Up And Say Bye, Bye.

It'* official my 89 Bonneville SE in the fastest car in my household. My mom has an 98 GP SE and my sister has a 99 GA SE. Me and my father were driving down Pennsylvania Ave. (We were going to a car show) all of a sudden he decides to get beside me and try to pass(In mom'* car). Well I don't like people passing me (Police excl.) so I sped up.
Before I knew it I looked at the speedo and noticed we were doing 75mph. I let off the gas for a split second just to have some fun and see if I could come from behind sure enough I did. I walked him down and passed him again at like 102mph. He gave up once I passed him. (his excuse was he didn't want to set an example that driving that fast is ok. What BULL....
My sister can never match my baby she can get me from a stand still (I gotta start slow for about a sec or my car will stall...Need new trans again) But around 40mph I always start walking her down. Only other car in the family is a 89 Olds Silhouette..... Like I'd even waste the gas.


I love my Old Red Rocket!

OK I guess I have to call mine "The Mean Maroon"
No mods, I'm saving up to bore my engine and and fit it with a wilder cam. I want people to pull up beside my car a think somethings wrong with it, until I see there car in my rearview. I get goose bumps thinking about it.
As far as the pic go........ I kinda ashamed to show my paint. I gotta think on it some more.
If your ever around Southern PG County, MD.
If your racing a 89 Maroon Bonneville SE and start to pass him. If the cars headlights go off and red and blue strobes take there place..... you've found me. I just do that to pass people if I can't walk them down sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I HATE TO LOSE CLOSE BATTLES.

I'll post pic but until then look at 89BonnieSE89 same car except original paint (good on sides bad on hood, roof, and trunk oh yeah mine isn't two tone and I have 35% Tint.

One more thing to distinguish mine I changed the grill to a SSE grill and painted it Black. Like the Police Crown Vic'*.
