Default Possible new Bonneville Owner

Hey guys. I have had a 2000 Regal GS for about 6 months. Loved the car. However, about a month and a half ago, driving home a car crashed into me head on as results of a very icy roads (combined speed was about 50mph). Here were some of the results:

Sad and depressed, I began looking for a new vehicle to replace the hole in my heart for my beautiful white lady. Alas, I think I have found just that. 2000 Bonneville SSEi w/ 61k miles, all options, and only $8999. I go to look at her tomorrow and god willing, I'll be coming home with a new 3800...

Did a walk through and test drive for it yesterday. Checked all the major problem areas and it all looked good. Bought it yesterday. It seems to have a little more pull than the Regal had (although the Regal needed a new */c belt and an oil change). Ill post pics tomorrow! Cherrio!
