Default New 98 SSEI owner

Hi everyone....I cant wait to get in on all the topics about these great cars... I just bought a 1998 SSEI with 162k on the ticker....MINT with no rust dents or dings... perfect leather all options for the low price of $2,500!

I have never owned a Bonneville before and I have lots of questions to be answered about simple mods

Hey there, welcome to the club.

Be sure to keep a close eye on that transmission at that mileage. Check your trans fluid to make sure its nice and bright red.

The previous owner just had the trans rebuilt 8k miles ago... it was rebuilt in july of 2006 the total cost was $2,133 for the rebuild... all paper work for the rebuild is in my hands.. thanks for the heads up

Hi Doug... Welcome to the club and being semi local.

If you become obsessed like some around here... let me know..I've got most of the tools/experience on the car that could be needed to get a bit more out of it.

Be sure and hop down to the regional meets area, under National and see the NEBF meet thread coming up in May.

WOW EVERYONE>....thanks for the warm invites...other clubs that I have belonged to in the past dont even compar to the attention you guys give!

my past club was www.contour.org....then my contour got wrecked in a accident and the insurance company cut me a check for$3,600.....so I Began the search for the car I really wanted! all I can say is I feel at home with my SSEI and I am never looking back at my SVT.
