Aww! That poor Aurora!

I love the Caddy though... Cadillac sure can make a sexy interior!

Being fiscally challenged myself, I understand what you're saying. The pleasant surprise on the Aurora was that it got equal gas mileage to the Olds LSS it replaced (18-19 city, 28 hwy). Granted, I did have the extra expense of burning higher octane fuel, but I found pretty quickly that I got equal mpg and performance from mid-grade as I did from premium. Same is true on the Caddy, although it'* slightly thirstier, getting 16-17 around town and 25 hwy on a good day. That said, I'm enjoying the Bonneville'* 19-20 city and 30+ hwy mileage.

I'm not planning much in the way of mods to the Bonne. I mainly just want to get it painted so it looks decent.
