Default Hello from N.* Canada. My 1997 SSEi

Hello everyone, my name is Mike and I just recently bought a 1997 Bonneville SSEI. My previous cars were a 1993 Grand Prix SE and a 1995 Grand Prix GTP. Needless to say the 1995'* dreaded LQ1 got the better of me and I gave up after 3 years of constant repairs and letdowns. Since I'm a Pontiac lover and Loyal to GM I searched for a new ride and found an awesome Bonneville on Kijiji. I bought the car within a week already heavily modified. I have a good knowledge of cars, but not to the point of a mechanic etc. Anyways I'll shut up and post a few pictures and the mod list. Currently she'* winterized with 15'' Steelies.

Just look up Merlin 91/97 and you'll find all the info about that car and the 91 he turbo'd.

You stole that car BTW. That price barely covers the cost of the heads.

That is a killer price. Like Bill said, the heads cost a lot. You got a great deal.
