Default Only one bonneville left in the family!

well, today is the last day that we are going to have more than one bonneville. My brother is selling his 92 SE because he just bought a 97' Dodge Dakota Sport with the 318 V8. Man, that truck hauls for a truck. lol. anyway, the dealer only offered him $1,000 on trade-in for the Bonneville! That seems extremely low (to me anyway). The only bonneville we have left now is the 2000 SSEi. :(

He could have least stayed in the GM family and got a Denali or the Escalade, hell even a trailblazer.

At least you'll have the newer Bonne for a while.

I guess one good bit of news I could tell you guys is that we're keeping the LeSabre.. lol

There'* a reason for getting rid of the 92 SE though, it had developed a top end engine knock. It sounds like it either has a bad lifter, push rod, or rocker. Can't really tell. The engine is still strong though at 122,000 miles, just has a knocking noise to it.

The Dakota is a really nice truck though IMO. It is loaded and doesn't really compare to an S10 or a Ranger in looks or build quality. He got a good deal on this truck too, it only has 51,000 miles on it and he'* paying 8,500 for it.

I'm not a fan of dodge trucks, they need to get their act together on trannies before they can hurt chevy IMHO. I don't like how the Ram is so tall, but still doesn't have more body clearance... But i'm a GM boy, gimme our yukon over most stuff any day, 'cept my bonneville that is.
