Default Sold the 93SSEi and....

Bought a 97 Buick Park Avenue, Salesman wanted $3995 for it and I talked him down to $2300. The car was missing really bad and I knew I could fix it very cheaply. So I put a set of plugs and wires on it and it still ran bad. I swapped coil packs and the service engine light went out and now the car runs awesome. I love the series two motor and it doesn't eat the gas that the bonny did. But the SSEi is still in the family. I sold it to my brother for $3000 so I ended up pretty good on the deal.

I love the Park Aves. Not sure I'd rather have one of a Bonnie, but they are very nice.
Certianly seems like yu made out well on the deal though.
Kinda hoping I can come across a good deal like that, finding a car that just needs a cheap, easy fix that I can bargian them down on price.

My buddy just picked up a black 2000 Monte SS w/160k for $3400. It looks pretty good after the detail. The deals are out there on these 3800 cars you just have to search...and search. BTW, nice score.

Hoping those deals are out here when I ready for a new ride. I'm always on the look, but haven't found too much yet.

I really wanted to stay supercharged but nothing came up in my price range. But I figure there are some mods I can do to a Series 2 to make it just as quick as my old SSEi.
