Default New to the Bonneville Way

Hi, I am a kid that has always liked cars. I originally only liked MOPARs but that was before I got my graduation present, a 2002 Pontiac Bonneville SSEI. She has a lot of miles(104XXX), but she can really cause a stir wherever she goes. I have a lot of plans for her, but I am afraid that they will have to wait until I am done with my five years of college. She will also have to wait until I am done with my other project, a 1971 Plymouth Roadrunner clone. I plan to pull her original motor and bag it while I put a new, high performance L67 in her to give her more umph. Other than that I am just a common kid in the middle of Nebraska in the US just wishing that he had more money LOL.

Thank your lucky stars that you got such a great car. Most kids get cheapo neons or hondas. This is a great starter car that is fast now, and faster later on.

Welcome to the forum!!! Let'* see some pics of her!

I have three on my profile page. I haven't had much time to take any pics of it since I got it 6 months ago. The weather hasn't helped much either. Things are looking to warm up soon though and there will be time to take some more pics.

The green car behind it was my actual first car. Its just a plain jane 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix SE, but I had more fun in that car than many other cars that I have ridden in. I still drive that car when I feel that the weather isn't good enough to take the Bonny.

Thanks the plan is to clear the turn signals and tint the rear. After that its time for a new paint job in the original special order Galaxy Silver Metallic. Then its time to upgrade the motor and the suspension which would require me to upgrade the brakes and wheel 'n tire package. Needless to say, I plan on putting money into her.
