Default parents want me to sell

parents are sayin that i should use my money to put towards a new car instead of up grading the one i have........... i dont really want to get a new car so i threw out the idea of just buying a new/better motor for it...... where i live it would be kinda hard to find another bonneville without having to drive around 100+ miles........... so suggestions, ideas, or ne thing would be much appericated

Well tanner, from the sound of that, I'm inclined to agree with your parents.

Yeah, you're better off getting a cheap Bonne that at least has seats without... duct tape... and definite mileage

You may not want to get rid of the 'ole girl, but once you slip into the seat of the new car, you'll wonder why you even thought about keeping the old one.
And nothing say you can't get another Bonne.

I'm goin with the 'rents on this one

Save your money. Make sure brakes & suspension are up to par.
