Thumbs up Newbie

Hi all, just wanted to introduce myself. This weekend I found myself needing to buy a used car fast, and I ended up with a 1997 Bonne SSEI. It has 126K miles, but thankfully it'* been very well maintained. Beautiful car, rides great, very quick when I need it to be, and it actually fits my tall self. Go figure.

Sweet 97 is a good year if I could be biased. Check to see if you hit the jack pot and picked up a 40th anniversary.

Thanks, all. I think I'm going to like it here. I'll post pics once I take a few. My new / old Bonnie is Ash Gold. Tomorrow morning will be the first time it takes me down the 101 to Ventura to work. I'm actually looking forward to it for a change. Have a great week. Don't let 'em get ya down.
