Sarge is on a distinguished road
Default hello everyone

My name is Scott and I am currently in the Army. I just returned from Iraq after 10 months. I own a 96 SE, which I bought 5 years ago. The car is great. due to my frequent military deployments, my car has only 63, 000 miles on it. Upon returning from Iraq I was looking to purchase a pickup. After searching around I have found that no one is willing to give me a good deal on a trade-in. My car is in too good of shape to let go. I do however, have a lot of dings on the body I would like to get fixed. Any ideas? I have thought about repainting but I am too scared it would look bad. I am thinking about putting 18'* on my car, but am worried that it will compromise the smooth bonneville ride. Can anyone give me any advise about 18'* on a Bonne? How rough is the ride? Is the look worth the rougher ride? Also any recommendations on body work will be much appreciated. I will post pics later.

Welcome to the Club and welcome home! Make sure all the sand is out of your boots.

Maybe some of the members with 18'* will chime in here and let you know what the ride is like.

The 96 SE probably has soft ride suspension so it should be fine.

And welcome back home...

Welcome home, soldier, and welcome to the club!

Where at you at? MOS?

I was over there the first time, but we had it easy compared to you guys. The Air Force did most of the work for us.
