Default I'm new

My name is Philip. GruveB is an old nickname, Groovy B (B is the first initial for my last name).

I dont' currently own a Bonnie, but have one in particular that I will probably end up purchasing. I am an F-body enthusiast and was given the link to this site from an F-body message board.

So hello everyone.

95, white with gray interior. It has the SLE option, 98K, 1 owner, Arizona car, clean car-fax report.

I don't know what is common on these cars, so if I'm stating the obvious, forgive my ignorance.

It has ABS, but rear drums, rear vents, leather, tilt/cruise/radio controls in the steering wheel, front air bags, cobra style shifter, keyless entry, 16" tires, spoiler and so on. Very nice car. Super quiet and smooth on the freeway. The dealer is asking 3350, but it needs tires and maybe an alignment, so before I asked, he said he'd negotiate. He'* got too many cars and most of them have been there for months. Business is slow for him.

EDIT: No, it'* not supercharged. But that'* OK.

A 95 SLE or SE is very fast. It is the lightest of the Bonnevilles, with 0-60 times in the low 7'*. It'* a good pick.

Thanks guys.

I was actually shopping for a car for my wife when I came across this one. I am thoroughly impressed with the condition of the vehicle. I posted a message on the tech board (think that what it'* called) and listed the few problems that I've found.

The dealer is going to call me Monday and maybe I'll be able to put a deal together for it.

If so, I'll post some pics.
