Default Hi All!

I'm not new to BC, but decided I needed to get around to meeting everybody sometime, so here I am. My Bonne is a deep green 1992 SSEi with 134,000 miles on it. I'll take some pics soon and get them posted. The car used to be JustinD'* from Lincoln City. I've done a lot of work on it to get things going (replaced the engine, and did some electrical and A/C work). I've scoured the posts for answers to problems I've come across, and found most of them. Many thanks to all. The only real problem left I think I resolved last week when I figured out that someone put the wrong eprom in the ECM. I found one through AC/Delco, and it should be here in a few days. There are still some minor things left to fix, but that'* part of the fun.

You all have a good forum here, and I'm glad to be a part of it. By the way, I've noticed that since I started driving my Bonneville, other cars just don't feel right.

Yeah, you'll have that problem. When my 95 SSEi died, I couldn't find another SSEi in good shape, but the Ultra comes close enough in performance that the creature comforts make up for the rest..
The L67 is just plain more fun than anything else I've driven around the same price, and I've driven everything in that price range.

EK98 and I will be getting together soon at my place in Corvallis to do some work to his car. You should join us.

My fingerprints are already on your car, and how the hell is Justin?
