Default Sold The Bonneville! REVISED!

This afternoon an man in his 50'* bought it from me. Him and his wife right now have a 87 Accord, he came over to our place with my grandparents to look at thier 21' Camper in the back yard, after the guy buys the camper for $3500.00, he comes in our house, they fill out the compleat bill of sale, he then notices our old dishwasher that my dad just replaced 3 days ago, he buys that for $200.00. He then goes on about how he is a die hard Honda and Toyota fan, i had my Bonneville in the gagare, all cleaned as usual, him and his wife are walking to thier car, i say hey, this is for sale too, in kind of a joking manner, he comes up, sits down in it, has his wife sit down in it, he looked very impressed, i opend the hood, he like it, he gets out his wallet and says, $4000.00 cash, right now. Ofcourse i say YES! We do up the sale, he starts it for the first time and drives right out of my garage! no quesitons asked, he wasnt concearned about any records of any sort. WOW
Doesn't happen every day!



p.* im now in the market for another Bonneville or an Olds LSS.

Right on Matt, glad to hear you got what you deserved, you've put a lot of work into it.

Is that greenzilla copy still for sale in edmonton?
That would be worth a look

I notice that cars are a bit cheaper in edmonton than Calgary, must be the economy of the 2 cities?

Good luck and happy car searching.

I drove a GS last night, not bad, but Bonneville seemed to have an edge (based on the ones I have driven)

Good luck Matt!

Tough luck finding a LSS w/ the */C. IIf you find one, buy one. The 1995 LSS I test drove seemed quicker than any Bonneville I've ever driven, granted I've never driven a modded car.

REVISION:
This guy who bought my car, drove it 300 miles round trip today, no problems at all. He has my grandmas phone number, he phones her up tonight, saying he wants me to give him the 4 grand back, saying I told him it only had 25,345 kms on it, when really, when he asked what the kms were on it, i turned on the key, he looked at the odometer, and it CLEARLY reads 253,450kms...BUT im so sorry, the car is now his, to bad he never even looked at it. i signed my little pink slip, he insured and registerd it, and I have my old plate back now. He claims i told him 25000 kms, and that i hid a number on the ODO, THATS IMPOSSIBLE, thats like telling someone there blue jeans are black. There is no way to roll back the odo on these cars, nor can I hide numbers. He got one hell of a deal on it, IMO. Hah, to think, i was originally gunna head up to his place, and tell him that i will give him a new fogger, and install it for him, because he has bad arthritus.
so, does
two hundred and fifty three thousand four hundred sound like
twenty five thousand three hundred?
PS i even told him the next oil change sticker says two hundred and fifty six thousand.
