Exactly my thing. If it'* clean, but not spotless that'* better then being spotless.

SSE only handles better if you get the ones with better springs

I'd say that'* a lot of body damage for that car, especially a 60k mile lifetime, i'd keep your eyes open if i were you. Also consider things like wheels, spoilers and grill types, many people are put off by that grill style, and bubble butts. It isn't a base model because it has ABS, but keep your eyes out.
ABS is standard on the 92+ Bonneville.

ABS should be standard, but Traction Control isn't.
