Default My grandpa was freaking awsome!

Ok, so as most know, my bonneville was my grandpa'* since new. In 2002, my grandpa died from stomache cancer, along with other medical complications. He kept all original records, factory brochures, etc... Well, my grandma was going through some old paperwork, etc. in a closet and came across this:









Yes, I do it'* from 1994, but it'* still freaking awsome! Ah, more things to go with my growing Bonnevillia artifacts

I can't believe they expected better reliability out of the junko chrysler LH bodies than the Bonne. Total garbage car if you tell me. Crappy trans, 3.5 blew head gaskets, 3.3 was just damn slow, and they were uglier than hell on the inside.
