Default Howdy all!

Well, I'm excited to be a new member here- this is such a vibrant community, and it'* nice to know help is just a post away.

The real name is Ryan, and I'm from Western New York. Various online identities include Red Dog, Nev, and abananaman, you can refer to me as any

I just bought myself a used and abused 1995 Bonneville SE, black, gray interior. Has a small dent on the drivers side rear quarter, and a large dent on the passenger side quarter and rear door. Interior was in sad shape, and had/has missing light covers, vents, and various plastic pieces. However, there were only 87k miles on the car, and it appeared to run like a top, which is a testament to the durability of these cars! I've given the interior a complete detail, replaced the vents, and done a bunch of general maint on the engine/drivetrain. Oil/fluid changes, plugs, wires, filters, and a code scan on the computer (everything showed clean except the issues I expected which I posted about elsewhere). That'* it in a nutshell!

Catch ya'all later!

I do have a few pics, but as I said, the poor beast was abused. It'* in sad shape. Plans include a new rear passenger quarter panel and door skin (or door :-p ), a few dent repairs, and a paint job, so I'm being a bit picky about my posted pics until I get that done It'* dull, scratched, dented, and a bit rusty in one or two spots, not exactly in showroom condition.
