Default Why do you have a Bonneville?

I got one because I needed a good used car and I didnt want to get a small car.

I found my 1998 Bonneville in 2002 with 80,000 miles for $5,000.

I love this car and I love the fact that its not too typical (I live in San Diego California, Ricer territory)

My 90 came last year to relieve my weekly fuel bill and cause I like all the buttons.

The 93 came out of the obssesion that I developed. Therapy hasn't been working

i have mine because in 93, a good looking/performing family car was hard to come by. If you can remember back that far, there was not really that many family cars that looked fast standing still, espically for the price

Bought my first Bonneville because I drove it, loved it, it was faster than my 86 Park Avenue, oh and it didnt leak anything!
Second Bonneville because I was tired of driving the Alero. Second Bonneville is in mint cond, in and out, runs great minus something stupid that just went wrong with it.
And chicks like a car with leather...and I like a car with a supercharger!

i got my 1997 88 LS cause it was my dads, he sold it to me for 600 bucks, he got it cause he knew the 3800 was notorious for being a strong engine that doesnt have many problems, and the car is in good shape, leather seats and wood trim, looks pretty good. I havn't sold it cause it'* big, and looks pretty nice, and rides really well.

Bought the '87 at auction without even knowing what it was. Bill talked me into the '93. He'* a good talker.

liked my parents gold 98se when they had it. some guy in a conversion van ran a solid red and totaled it while i was driving. kept my g/f and i scratch free. traded my mustang five days later (if i had gotten hit in that, my nitrous bottle would've went kaboom) on a clean 98 ssei with 76k miles.

I bought the first one because of the list of options it had, and it was within my price range. Fell in love then... sad day when I sold it. I apparently have the same affliction as Randman1, which as far as I know is uncurable...
