Sad story, but you got a ride for a few weeks? And fell in love with a bonneville. That'* enough for me! Good luck!

Camry, or any Honda should be a reliable choice.

Good Bonnevilles are HARD to find. My wife and I ran EVERY car dealer, from the new dealerships all the way to the small corner lot ones. Only the Pontiac dealer has a Bonney here...one new and one used. Thats IT. in a town of 30k people there are NONE.

So I know its tought to find a car that "fits" We are kinda in the same price range, unless we trade the Malibu in then maybe a newer one for us.

Finding that "just right fit" is REAL tough though

you'll know it when you get in it, if it'* golden or not.

Any bonneville should be reliable. But salvage titled cars are a in my book.

I can understand your logic on Salvages...but in this case...
I knew the guy selling it very well....and knew that it would be put back together just right.

There was no way of seeing that it had this intake issue with the prior owner and it
could have happened with any bonnie i bought...Outside of that is was a great car....

I am off for a ride tomorrow night to check out that SSEI....if its a waste of time....
well here are my next stops.... ( I KNOW......What the hell is it with WHITE....I am not trying
to buy a white one...just happens to be everyone I like is WHITE!!!!) hehe!

This 94' GP w/115k for $2g'* obo or......




This 1995 Pontiac Grand Am GT w/87k for $2690
