My Bonnevilles is... um...

I have a really nice, mint on the interior, in the engine bay, no engine/transmission issues, and otherwise awesome SLE. As far as the exterior, there are no problems except for the spoiler that has some weird clearcoat issue.

The 94 SSEi is completely different. It was bought by the previous owner in mint condition at 16K miles, and he smoked cigars (and other things) in it for 262K miles. Under his "maintenance," the car went through 2 engine rebuilds and 2 transmission rebuilds, and it'* now at 291K miles with a 40K-mile transmission and about 110K miles on the engine. I may have problematic valve seal.

The interior was absolutely ruined, and someone identified at least 3 different types of mold in the old carpet and found some old antifreeze stains. Every single thing except for the dash went out and was replaced, and I'm working a bit on the dashboard right now. The trunk carpeting was really moldy, so I just ripped that out and hosed down everything with truck bed liner. It works.

Also, Sam'* Club once installed a new front-right tire but forgot the lug nuts. When the previous owner drove away, the wheel flew off and damaged a bunch of stuff. It was paid for by Sam'* Club, but the guy pocketed the funds to fix the fender. I bought a like new fender from a junkyard and swapped it out, and the car'* body is awesome on the passenger side. On New Year'* Eve on Dec 2006/Jan 2007, some drunk moron kicked the crap out of my driver'* side door, and that broke off the trim. Still under repairs. Also on the driver'* side of the car is a paint chip on the rear quarter panel. Finally, there are many little dents on the roof for some reason. It'* best explained as damage you'd expect from setting the corner of a TV or something on the roof. Aside from that, the chassis is fine with no bends, a really nice coat of paint, and so on.

Now, there'* new carpeting, all new door panels from a 98 SSE, new weather stripping (no leaks!), new seat covers, and so on. Planned are new seat belts and such. As for the engine, it'* doing fairly well. I was hoping to get your 94 SSEi, rip out both engines, do a top swap from your engine to mine, and put my engine in your car. Also into your car would go the newer style door panels unless the interior is charcoal instead of tan, a differently styled shift ****, 3 amplifiers, hundreds of dollars of speakers, subwoofers, a rear battery, a bunch of performance-oriented things, and so on.

You might consider that your 94 SSEi is worth a lot to me, but I am kind of hoping to explain to you that it would take a lot of work, more than just "fixing" the engine, for me to begin to see value in it. There'* something almost weird about how much I adore my 94 SSEi, and I would have trouble parting with the chassis. But except from that, my work on my car has been mainly performance and audio oriented, so that could just transfer right over. So, do you have any pictures yet?

Aha! I sense lessened interest in purchasing my Bonneville! No problem. I'm flattered.

Let me sleep on this, and I'll PM you with the rest of this so as not to hijack the thread too much. But we can still chat here if you'd like. Also, please let me know if your situation with your 94 changes.
