Default Why is it so hard to buy a Bonneville?

This sux.....I'm looking for a 97-99 SSEi Bonne to buy and they seem impossible to find. I have a brother that works at a GM dealer and they can't even find one for me. What makes them so hard to find? I live in the Boston area and they seem few and far between. If anyone hears/sees someone (dealer or private party) selling a 97-99 SSEi please pm me and let me know. Thanks.

Im having a hard time too, except the problem I have is that I run into smelly, crappy cars which makes me amazed that people cannot take even simple care of their cars.

I paid 7200 for my SE and that SSEi has the same miles as my car when I brought her and it'* only a grand or so more. I say definitely check it out. I don't think you'll regret it. :P

Guys, come to Columbus, the dealers here seem to have tons of 92-99 Bonnies, including SSEi'*. Every time I go up Morse Rd, I see at least twenty B-villes in the lots.

That I can testify to. I visit Columbus a lot and there are so many Bvilles. I'm sure you could get one for cheap here in good ol' Ohio

Yea, Buicks and Bonnevilles are pretty popular here in the midwest, we have tons here in Indiana too.
