Default Hello from the Netherlands!

Hello all,

My name is Theo, and im a proud owner of a Pontiac Bonneville SE from 1996.
I bought it from the original owner, with 189K kilometers on it.













It does have a few problems like the blinkers/turn signal doesnt work (still working on it, fuses and bulbs are ok),
when i brake hard the car shakes a little and, the hazard button seems to be broken (doesnt do anything when i press/pull/twist with it :P).

Its not the most economical car here in the Netherlands with almost 2 euros for 1 liter gas (9.35 dollar for a gallon!).

But it drives amazing, thousand times better than my previous car (Nissan Primera/G20).

Greets Theo.
