Default New to BC!

I just joined the site today, and I am looking forward to spending way too much time here. Great site!

I had my first Bonneville in 87...it was an SE with all the toys for the time. I really enjoyed the car, but at age 21, I thought I wanted a two door sports job...so I traded it on a new 300ZX Turbo. it was a nice car...and I have had several cars since, but nothing ever made me forget my first Bonneville. Why? Who the hell knows, but I have said that I would some day purchase another.

Well here I am. I purchased a 2001 SLE this summer with low miles on the clock. I am going to drive this for a year, then give it to my wife when i get the 04 GXP...well, that is the plan anyway.

This Bonneville is wonderfu. and I look forward to each day I drive it. I travel for a living, and get to rent cars all over the world, and I still cant wait to get back to my car at the Toronto airport and enjoy the drive home.

I have already replaced the headlights with cool blue...just to light things up a bit, but nothing more at this time. I will be getting it tinted, as soon as I get the chance. Not sure what else I should do to the car...if anything.

I am looking forward to reading the comments on BC, and perhaps there will be something there that will influence me.

i think I am a certified Bonneville nut...and dont know why? What are your reasons? Love to hear them!

Welcome to the club. If you spot a 96 white aurora at the Toronto airport, 89BonnieSE89 will be lurking around somewhere. I have flown into the airport a few times. Lets get some pics posted of your car.

Go to the Photo Albums form, second post down "Major whorage happening here" and read 89BonnieSE89 post. I use cardomain.com to host my pics. Once you create an account there you can upload your pics there then you will be able to post them to this forum. You cannot download pics from your HD to this forum. Once you get the hang of it, it is a piece of cake. Practice downloading to the Test forum once you get your pics on cardomain. You will see what I mean when I first joined by all of my test pages.

Yeup...very easy to do, and I'm a fellow Ontarian!!

I bet you can't wait til that new Terminal opens at Pearson eh BonneDad? Looks like domestic flights start operating in 30 days, the big media day is Dec 2, so stay away from Pearson that day.

as for posting pics. They need to be on the web like Aviator mentioned.

to post any pic, take the URL (web location) of the image and type [img]paste_the_URL_here[/img]

It seems hard off the bat, but trust me, once you get it shes EASY to do.

Have fun with the new SE
