Well, I do not own a Bonneville. Lately though, my father told me he wants me to take over the maintenance on my mothers 2000 Bonneville. He hates working with cars and I do it a bit. So I joined this forum because I saw a lot of good information on here one night and I think it might prove useful.

Welcome to the forum. I think you will find it useful in many situations.
What trim level does your mom have?
Do you have any pics of it?

I don't have a pic of my mothers car. I really do not think it is pic worthy. My mother is really bad about taking care of her cars. It has dings, dents, rust, and the back seat Mc D'* bag mod.

Just curious..... What kind of power are people putting down with these cars. I know my moms car will not get modded. She is in her fifties and hates when I mod my car.

Yes, my mother is addicted she can not leave the house without getting at least some fries. Funny thing is, she is the tiniest women ever. The way she eats that stuff you would think she would be huge.

Depending on what you do to them... guys are seeing up around 500hp at the top end.

I'm pushing around 450hp these days.

I can't even guess what I'm putting down. Bill figures 375, but only the dyno knows.
