Default Greetings from the jobless State of Michigan

Hi all,

What a great site!! A wealth of information!! I purchased my father'* 1994 Bonneville SE a few years back...it'* been very reliable up until now...just a few things going bad, the dreaded UIM/LIM and front wheel bearings are the first to be addressed. No mods, 145K on her. I plan on fixing myself then hand the bonny down to my daughter as her first car.

Thanks to all who answered many questions that helped me out as I "lurked" around this site for awhile. First official post.....I'll be back!!!!

Welcome to the Bonneville Forum!

I assume that with your user name you are a Firefighter?

Welcome to the Bonneville Forum. My wife'* parents live outside of Grand Rapids, and we were just in Lansing 2 weeks ago for my daughters graduation from MSU Veterinary College. Glad you found us and hope you find the info and members helpful.

30 years for me on June 1. Currently a Captain - Training and Safety, and we don't have a mandatory policy on early out. We are however working diligently on it...well at least I am!

JtownStar07,

I know quite a few officers that work for the city, like me, but outside of Lansing I don't.
