Only the 90 for now. The 93 is in progress.

It took 6 weeks to get the 90 roadworthy but I think it will take more for the other one. It'* refurb includes a new paint job and some performance mods too. Once it is ready, I don't know what'* going to happen because that will make 4 cars between the two of us.

I drive the 99 because I can't really afford to insure both at the same time. If my job would have given me and my co-workers our raises instead of telling us once more that they can't afford to give us a raise (then, why do they brag about all the net profit they are making?!?!?!) then I'd insure both, use the 94 for commuting to work and back, and the 99 for pimpin on weekend'* and special occasions, but since I'm college bound the 1999 is going out the door (hopefully in the next couple days), the 1994 is coming out of hibernation and I will drive a 30 mpg (consistantly) Bonneville again.

I drive the 91 primarily. My son drives the 94 cuz that is his favorite. We take the 94 when I don't feel like driving. (And I don't let him drive the 91 too much if I can help it)

When I had the pair drivable for that short week or so, I perfered the 87. Everyone knew me in that car So I met up with alot more people I knew and others that had heard of me, Not that just the 93 runs I seem to be know as "The guy in the three colored Bonneville"....

my mo drives our 2000 all the time so I get the 97. We both have the seats set different ways and different radio presets so it works out. The 2k is much peppier tho (CAI will take care of that).

Kendras 00 SSEi gets more miles on it because she drives it every day to work. I work from home so mine sites in the driveway most of the time. If we go somewhere together I usually drive mine Id say its close to 50-50. I hate driving hers though, it feels so slow.

Merlin 91/97 is on a distinguished road

It'* 50/50 for me in the summer....
Basically whichever car isn't being worked on I'm driving.

The 91 goes into storage before the first snow... and will probably come back out again in May 05.

Three main reasons for the 97 in the winter.
91 was just repainted
91 just had all her rust removed
97 has heated seats
