Default New here, obviously...

Hey guys, just your run-of-the-mill 19 year-old, residing in obnoxiously sunny Martin County, north of West Palm Beach. Had my Bonnie for about eight months now, a metallic eggplant (I swear! What an awesome color...) '93 SE with 146k miles on her. I've only put 4k miles on her since I bought her for $1400 It was a great deal for a car as straight as she was. Was is the operative word, and if it wasn't for my own stupidity she still would be. As a consequence, I am now in the market for a '95 SE. So, as a shameless plug to end my little introductory post, just have 2 questions: Can I get a good-great condition '95 w/ high miles (125-145k mile range) for 2 grand around here? If anyone'* selling in this area, in other words, I'm interested. I like the '95 body style, and it'* the only year of that body style to have the Series II in it A nice console shift base SE would suit me just fine, maybe a spoiler and hopefully a tranny cooler like my current one, but, hey, I can't be too picky for $2000 Oh yeah, and the second question: Can anyone give me any specific info on the ruptured plenum problem these early Series II engines have? I know it'* something with corrosion eating through it around a vulnerable area surrounding the EGR valve, but I have no idea how to detect it, etc. Any sharing of other personal experiences with this year and trim level is heartily welcomed! And just so I don't forget to say it, it'* nice to be a member of a board where all the members (assumedly) love their Bonnies as much (or more!) than I! Old person'* car my right foot!

Regarding the intake manifold question there is a LOT of great information regarding that issue in 92-99 Mech and Maint forums.

Good luck with the car

Don't let anyone know where you live... I'll pay them to steal the bumpers and mirrors....

Do you got a muffler with double outlet on one side? Do you got grey leather, and the silver cross laced wheels?
