I don't think the tires will be getting lit up by the new owner -SHE is a very conservative driver and has managed to average 29 mpg on more than 1 tank of in town driving in her old 1991 SSE (which is what her brother drove before he bought my old SSEi -he only managed 20 mpg in town once).
I believe with the girl driving the car the way she drives (ya, like the grandma who'* always holding up traffic), and as long as she maintains it should easily hit 300k.

Hmm, sad to see a Bonnie go. I'm sure I'm way behind the news here, buy why'd you sell it?

That really looks nice and for $3750.00, what a deal!
Those Texas cars are always in nice shape.
I know the Bonneville site is mostly new cars but I've been going over there and those younger guys made such a big fuss over my 64 that I thought one of them might want a REAL Bonneville.



thats a really nice car! i wish i have 3K to drop on it, i'd buy it in a heart beat!

Don't anybody worry about me leaving -worry about me staying -which is what I'll be doing -I'll be driving a 1989 Lesabre as my daily driver and the Dippy as my classic/fun car.
Oh, and as to why I sold the car -the guy who bought my 1999 SSEi said his sister was looking for a new car and she'd seen my gold SSE and wanted to buy it and so she had him make me an offer. Turned out to be more than I ever thought I'd get for it $4K'ish+ and it had 180,500 miles on it. Ran great, and the tranny that I once thought was crap turned out to be fairly trusty after two flushes (the second one was fairly clean after 10,000 miles). I'd done alot of R&R to major wear spots, put new tires on 8 days prior to selling, new oil pan gasket 2 days before that and the car was really in tip-top shape -much better than a typical car with 180,500 miles.
Was kinda tough letting it go, but I have the cash in hand (well, savings account anyhow ) which I can use for whatever I want -don't want to spend much of it now as I am trying to save for a place of my own -either renting or buying a house as I don't want to be in an apartment for more than 6 months if I can help it.

Itsnitro,
I'm reading that post I made and it looks like I'm putting you guys down for not owning a old Bonneville.
That'* not what I was tring to get across.
I hope I didn't offend anybody.
I have trouble sometimes "talking" on this internet.
Thank you.

Don't worry about it. We don't get riled up very easily unless someone just comes in and starts causing trouble.
We been thru it before.............We're still here,They're NOT!!!!!!!
