Default New to the forum and new to Bonnevilles

Hi All!

Last week I bought my first Pontiac, a 2000 Bonneville and I love the car. Its bronze, in great physical condition, 36K miles and all leather interior. The car rocks, it'* a big change from the kind of cars I'm used to driving. My last car was a tiny little dodge neon. Actually, the neon was my wifes car but it became mine when we turned in my blazer (lease was up) and bought a mini-van that she could use to haul the kids around in. Anyway, I'm glad to be here and I look forward to reading through the forum.

Welcome! I bet your Bonnie seems like a Maybach compared to the Neon!
Be sure to post some pics in Your Ride, and put your car'* year, and trim level (se, sle, sse, ssei)!

Thanks for the welcome petraman. The Bonneville is a heckuva lot better to drive than the neon. A lot more comfortable too. When driving the neon I didnt have any where to rest my left arm unless I had the window open. Big men are not meant to drive small cars .

I guess a little more detail on my new car would be nice. It'* a 2000 SE 3.8 liter 3800 series II V-6. I will post some pics later.

Welcome to BC!

These are good cars and this is a great place to hang out and learn things...or just to hang out.
