Jack, why are you watching that SSEi? I thought you liked your SE? Plus you already have a Bonneville and this poor man can't even find one.

Yes. CT, and especially MA, have had more than their share at all trim levels in the 95-99. NYC to Wash DC region, just by pure numbers of people, you would expect a glut. Ain't happenin'.

And from my informal survey/conversations with people that own these "old, big butt, dinosaurs". The people are like 'yeah, I'd consider selling it.... if you can get it out from my cold, dead hands.'

The 7th Sense.... "I see Bonnevilles..., and they don't know they are supposed to be dead'.

I got really lucky with mine.

Went out for dinner and was going to look at a '97 but it was gone. Went down a little farther and there she was She had been on the lot for less than a week. Looked at her on a Sunday,paperwork on Monday,brought her home on Tuesday.

Keep looking,you'll get lucky just like I did
