Default new member from cincinnati

Hi guys, My name is Brian Cole. I am a 28 year old from Cincinnati, Ohio. I stumbled upon the car of my dreams by accident. At first I was out shopping for a grand prix GTP, and I had gone to every car dealer in the city two times! Finally I found one that I loved and applied for it... Long story short, I was approved for less than what the GTP and the salesmen told me that he had only a few cars in my price range. We went through the whole lott and nothing... Finally the sales manager said that he had one more car that they just brought in from a trade in. It was a black 2001 Pontiac Bonneville SE! I didn't even know what this car looked like but when I got into the garage to see it, I said I will be back tomorrow to get my car! The rest is history! I love this thing. I am six foot three and two hundred and seventy pounds so I needed a bigger car, but i was not willing to sacrafice style to get it. No buicks for me. Anyway, I love cars... Fast cars, loud cars, low riders, classics... You name it I love it. I used to be a mechanic but hurt myself on the job lifting a transmission out of a road tractor... Apparently they make equipment to do that for you. Anyway, I love my car and I am very excited to get to know people that love the same kind as much as me. Feel free to ask me any questions that you want.

Yeah I like this place already. Oh and by the way, as far as my back goes, I had a spinal fusion. It was a five hour surgery and it hurt for months, but the first thing that happened to me when I got paid from workmans comp was my bonnie! I love it! Can anyone please tell me why they stopped making them? And as for living in Cincinnati, don't worry... I am a Raiders fan (which is like asking me to choose my own poison at this point) but it could be worse... I could be a fan of the superbowl champions that got there by beating everyone and then injuring the quarterback of the team that was gonna beat them only to return for the next season and only see the playoffs from the comfort of my own home... hahahahaha What is it with Bengal and Steeler fans? Thanks for the hard time. Now i really feel like im at home.

Welcome to the club. They stoped making bonne'* because they were selling as many as they wanted.

Kiss my un-stylish...ahem.



The Bonnie kind of got the shaft. GM screwed the pooch by not advertising the Bonnie, especially the GXP.

Welcome to the Club!

By the way, you should check out www.goclubgp.com.
That would be the Greater Ohio Club Grand Prix. Not a very active board, but we meet once a month and do occasional events. Free to join, use the forum, and attend meetings, but if you feel like stepping up and paying $20/year, there are bennies and perks.

Welcome to the club! Bonnies are the best kept secret when it comes to luxury and speed. Unfortunately, this secret is what ended the legacy.
