Default Things I find awesome......

The fact that my friends and family want Bonnevilles, my friend Kelli'* dad told her that when she passed her Lisence test he'd go half-sies with her on a car and "found" her a Focus she was like "No dad!, I want a Bonneville!" , my other friend Jamie'* mom said that she could have her '91 Grand Marquois or go buy her own car (and the Mercury is nice 65,000 miles and nothing wrong with it) she told her mom that she'd rather have a Bonneville. My sister told me she wants an early nineties Bonneville. I just find this all awesome......I was like "It'* catching on!!!!!!!!"

They do make a great cruiser for those that will have a number of friends riding with them.

Wait till they drive one with FE2 or F41, The they go " OMG I didn't know this big boat could handle like this..... I want one "

But the bad part is, if mom or dad help buy it they will most likely end up driving it liking it

Even though I don't drive a Bonneville, I find it interesting how people berate the "granny car"...and then they ride in it and their opinion turns around 180 degrees.

It may be a granny car, but grandma has the capability for some good acceleration, cornering, and stereo power if she needs it.

I was looking at a 98 Bonneville SE with 60k miles, just before I found the LeSabre. Nice looking, pretty well loaded and in good shape. Dealer was asking way too much for it, I may have bought it otherwise.

I would have been happy with any 3800 powered car though.

First time my friend rode in my car we hit up some curves and he was surprised at my FE1!
