Default Newbie with a 94SE

Hi, my name is Lynn. I recently (pissed) sold my '05 GXP and in return the wife bought a Honda Odessy. I still have old faithful.('94 SE), with 119,000 miles and going strong. I refer to all of the active listings on this forum and use them to make my stuff better when time allows. The mileage is pretty good for the money I have into it and it still looks great. The leather interior is just like I drove it off the showroom floor. This is the 5th Bonneville I have owned, easy to work on, great to drive, easy on the pocket book and parts are readily available anytime. If you don't own one, you should. When it breaks, it is for a reason, JUST FIX IT. That is my moto.
Thanks
Lynn

Hi Lynn;

Welcome to the Bonneville Forum!

Please add your year and trim of your vehicle to your signature line. That way when you start asking questions in other areas of the forum, we all have a better idea on how to assist you. Click on "Quick Links" above, go down to "User Control Panel" and then click on "Edit your Signature" It'* pretty straight forward from there.

You've come to the premier forum for all things Bonneville and we can help you keep her in tip top shape.

Welcome Lynn. I'm glad to hear you find the Bonneville Forum useful. If searching doesn't get you what you are looking for, don't hesitate to start a thread with your questions.

Thanks. I get compliments from the former owners when ever I see them. They say that I need to wash it a little more often, but I been working on building a new house for some people that live 4 miles on gravel roads (SUCKS). They can not believe that the Bonneville will last as long as 2-3 other cars when I tell them!

Yea I know...... I have been told to keep the wife happy. If she is not happy, nobody is! She really felt it was necessary with the two kids. I will someday return to the GXP roots. I really miss the nice rumble of the exhaust at 6800 rpm and the speed that it took me. It was a wise move to trade before the law caught up with me. hehehehe

Grand Prix GXP or Impala SS if you want a 4-door V8 rocket. That LS4 is sooooo much better than the NorthStar.

I'd say you're better of with the 94', at least the 3800 is reliable and if it breaks a trip to the junk yard will yield at least 10 cars with the same motor.

Welcome.
