Default Great site!

I am into Pontiacs, have been all my life and I am 50 years old. Currently driving a 98 Bonneville SLE with 402K on it. I am retiring it, and replacing it with a totalled 04 Bonneville SE that I am fixing, hit hard in the rear. This site has allowed me to smooth over small problems I have encountered with the 04 rebuild. Thankyou much!! I also have a 1960 Pontiac Catalina that I restored several years ago.

Welcome! Is that in km or miles?

Nice to see a Bonneville rescued

Not sure how that would show in an avatar, we are limited by size.

You may have problems with the avatar, so just go with the signature (size limits are posted in NOTICE).

There have been avatar issues since our server move a couple weeks ago (which is why you see red x'* in some).

Welcome to the club Dan. How did you put so many miles on the 98 in such a short period of time? Over the road sales coast to coast?

The 98 Bonneville now has 404K and I put them on traveling 7 Midwest states for my job. I really do love the car. Had to replace the engine @ 300k due to intake manifold failure. Bought a new engine at that point. Still on the original transaxle , exhaust which amazes me. Car still looks nice.
