Default Sold one, buying another!

Bought my 2002 Bonneville SLE about three months ago for $800 (pics posted in the pic section) just sold it today for $2,600

Picking up a 2004 GXP tomorrow for $2,500! It needs a lot of TLC, but nothing I can't tackle. 227,000 miles on it too lol

Pics will be up soon

I have a mint 2005 Bonneville GXP with 67328 miles on it and its the nicest car Ive owned. It has a double din alpine 7 inch screen and 9.5 inch head rest monitors that can play movies in the front and back while driving. The power of the Northstar V8 is unreal. I think you made a good choice even if it needs some loving touch. The engin alone is worth it. My brother had a Caddy where he had to get the northstar rebuilt it cost him $3200 so for $5700 you will have a nice reliable GXP. Is it cosmetically good shape??

It runs and drives great, I test drove it and took no mercy. Cosmetically is where the damage is.
































Water pump belt looks really good

We are about 95% sure on keeping it. Probably sell the '03 SSEi.

I should have it home in a couple hours, called him last night told him I have cash in hand and will be there about 10:30 for it.

This car has sure seen its better days, the guy never took good care of these limited car like he should have. The Bonneville when out with a bang with the GXP. She burns the tires with that heavy V8 sitting on the front tires so that has some HP, they say it has 252HP but now they have a Ford Focus with 270HP. What is this world coming too.

I have always had a love for the bonnevilles ecspecially the ones with the 3800 engine in them. I owned a 1992 Bonneville SE it had 267,333 miles on it and I only had to change the waterpump, serpentine belt 3 times and tires 3 times and it still sold for $2000, there are people who want the 3800. I also Have a 30th Anniversary edition 1997 Pobtiac Bonneville SSE. Its been a great car, I use it as a work car now I drive 24 miles a day and its been great and reliable. Just one waterpump, 2 serpentine, and one battery and 2 sets of tires, I will never let go of my bonnevilles, they are so reliabile I would recommend the Cars with 3800 1 and 2 without even thinking about it because if you have a problem you can pull it into the garage and repair it on your own. The Northstar is a but more trickier. Changing plugs I had to unbolt the engine and lifit it a little bit and angle it to change the plugs and wires. You have to love all the Bonnevilles.

The style of ours has the two fog lightd right below the middle of the grill about 10 inches in between. It has the middle console with about 12 buttons for the sets and its a dark purple with the bose system in it. and it has a 30th Anniversary edition on the side of the car right by the backseat doors. It is the 30th edition on the floor mats and its a nice looking car but I think the Dark Purple is dated but its a great work car, It gets about 30MPG on the highway and 23 city. We have two kids so its nice having the four doors. We have a 1997 Bonneville which I just explained, a 2004 Custom yukon XL Denali which is labeled an SS but I dont know if its a conversion it almost has to be because it has the K&N, Turbo, Intercooler and SS embroidered in the seats. 3 monitors. two Seven inch in the dash one where the 6 disc changer goes and one where the factory Navigation goes, the alpine has Navigation and an Ipod adapter, A 19: drop down TV in the back along with a sun roof which would have been hard to install because the moon roof slides all the way back. 23" Giovanno wheels wrapped in Kuhmo SXT Directional tires plus I got the original wheels for winter. Its tinted black all the way around. 0% in the back and 1% in the front because they tinted over the factory tint. We also have a 2005 Pontiac GXP with the Northstar Engine a DIY nightmare but I put a K&N in it and changed the plugs and 9mm wires, its its a runner but we use it for traveling because it has a 7" Alpine Dual DIN DVD and two 9.5 ich recievers in the rear head rests. The alpine has Navigation and no touch blur tooth. Im proud of my two vehicles in the Garage but my 97 just needs detailing and it will be back to normal. The leather has no tears at all. The I have my 2003,2006, and 2011 Yamaha R1. I customized my 03 but havent got around to my other two besides Pipes and power commanders.
