I don't know, I'm a bit hesitant on this. It looks too damaged for me to even consider. My gut instinct is to tell you to walk, I don't care if it'* supercharged, or the only one for sale in your town, there'* a 99 Bonneville SSEi (tan btw with leather, moonroof, etc) for sale in Newark, Ohio, it has 62k miles and has chrome torque stars, why not pursue that instead?

Buying that car you're looking at would be the same as buying a she-man hooker, not quite a woman but close.

I'd definitely look at other Bonnes in the area. Maybe that one Fuel is talking about will come through for you. Don't limit yourself to just one. I doubt you'll find another one in such bad (cosmetic) shape.

What exactly is wrong with the paint on the roof?

Even as impulse I am, I'd still think twice about that one. I dunno, looks fixable, but only if you're ready to fix.

That'* what it looked like to me. I'd say that'* some of the worst UV damage I've ever seen, but whoever tried to fix it made the real damage. If you got this car, after replacing the bumpers I'd try and find a good shop to repaint the entire car.

Good luck. I hope you can find something that won't exhaust all your time and money.
