Default New Member - Long Time Bonneville Owner

Hi all.

I just stumbled across this great site this evening. I've been a Bonneville owner for the last 11 years, and never even thought to look if something like this existed. I drove my father'* old Black '88 LE from roughly '96-'00, and got rid of it when it was still going strong with 158K on it. It was starting to rust out a little, so a few years after college in the summer of '00, I bought my dream car; a Black '97 SSEi, which I still drive today. It'* got 147K on it and still looks and drives as good as the day I bought it. Just an amazing car.

This weekend, I'm picking up a Black '05 GXP. I love my SSEI, but I stumbled across a deal, and I couldn't pass it up. The '97 is still going to be my primary car (I just love it too much), but I wish it was Saturday already. I can't wait.

Once the weather is consistently nice, I'll post some pics of both. It'* pretty cool to know that there are others that love these cars as much as I do.

Cheers

Matt

Welcome, Matt. Although it took you awhile, you have definitely found THE place for Bonneville nuts to hangout.

Sounds like you'll have a nice problem on your hands, soon. Hmmm....which Bonne do I drive today....SSEi or GXP?

Welcome! We are in the same boat, just bought a GXP 2 weeks ago and should be here in a couple days. You'll love it here. People know what they are talking about here. Have fun.

Thanks for the welcome everyone. I'm from Cleveland, so the winters aren't that kind to my SSEi, but she still cleans up real nice.
