everytime we went to church in the minivan, my dad would talk about how he wanted to get a 90-91 SSE... i thought they were butt ugly... several years later... i was working and my parents came to visit me to show me their new car... 97 maroon ssei... i took it out that night to see how i liked it....

i then went on a searching spree... the lumina was dying and i needed something... i looked on ebay for weeks, and almost gave up.. until i found blackjack for $3500 BIN... drove to ohio that weekend with a friend and picked it up.. drove it 39,000 in 19 months, and then the deal for the 00 came through... i know i wanted series 2, and this one was cheap.. WAY cheap... i worked on selling the 95, but picked up the 00 in kentucky with my 95... then sold it 2 weeks later... damn do i miss that car, and damn do i miss my 00.. as it is dead right now.... :(

i had a wad of cash to spend on a ride, i was looking all over pittsburgh and i had a list of things i WANTED in a car, 4 door , 6 cylinder, good gas millage and a semi good looking car, i was actualy looking for a sanata (spelling?) at a dealer and had a list of rides he had ther, including a 300M that was real nice but had a HUGE slash in the driver leather seat, looked at the bonne and was like " wow what the hell is that sweet looking ride?"
then went and test drove a 2k deamante (spelling?) same car as my cousin has and i realy like them, then test drove the bonne, it had WAY more pickup and power then everything else i test drove, even with the AC on, so i ask the guy what he wants, and says 12K, i basicly tell him to eat sh*t, said i had cash and i was walking away unless he could come down to 9k , ended up getting it for 9,250 off the lot with taxes and trancfer fees included, then dumped another 3 or 4k into the extras, tint , radeo, rims and whatnot

This bonne has been in my family since 1994, it is a 1995, it was my dads business car for quite sometime, i always enjoyed cleaning it and taking car of it with my dad, so when i got my liscence the car was given to me, its now my baby and ill never let it go, i keep fixing it, slowly but surely it will become a classic one day.

I wanted a larger 4 door. Was down to either a Maxima or Bonneville. My buddy picked up a Maxima so I decided to go the other route.

I bought mine because #1 it was a one owner car(my moms) and #2 it only had 44000 miles on it and I could afford it at the low cost of $3000!!!
