Default Hello From Tennessee

What'* up Bonneville lovers? My name is Steve and I live close to Knoxville, Tennessee at the foot of the Great Smoky Mountains.

I'm an old man of 50 and I've loved cars all my life - ALL types of cars - but I've always had a soft spot for Buick/Olds/Pontiacs.

I'd been using a 1991 Olds Delta 88 Royale Coupe as my daily driver for the last 6 years, so when I decided to upgrade I knew another 3800 was what I wanted. That led to the Bonneville as my choice. It'* a long story on how I ended up with four but that'* not for this thread (is it???)

You guys have some beautiful cars - Great board!

Thanks for the welcome everyone!

The need for repair solutions & tech info got me to the board via Google, due to the usual leaks & electronic quirks these cars seem to have in common. Of course now stimulating conversation might be part of it too, but most of the time I just check out the conversations & all the repair info that'* available. It'* incredible how much knowledge has been collected on these cars here.
