So this past weekend, I finds myself driving back from Oregon in a 1996 Bonneville SSEi, and rather enjoying myself. The ride isn't too bad, and has plenty of power on tap. Oh, how the list goes on.
The contrast is fantastic in nearly every way from my last (waiting to be sold) vehicle...a 1993 Volkswagen Corrado SLC.
I wish I could afford to keep them both, but the Bonneville needs some paint and a stereo that will work. And though fewer miles have been rocked in the Corrado, I feel more comfortable in the Pontiac.
I haven't finished wallowing through the muck of the faq yet, but I'm sure that I'm not alone in a couple of situations. One being the steering wheel controls for the stereo going completely bananas and messing with whatever radio station is on (the tape player is way beyond repair). And something I've noticed on many GM automobiles in the past: the paint seperating from the body in odd, sometmies large, patches.
But this hardly seems the place to start bitching and moaning, so I'll just say 'Howdy' and be off.

Nice to meet ya.

Cheers.

Welcome to Bonneville Club

You shouldn't have any worries with the higher mileage, many of us on here have high mileage and still use these cars as daily drivers, and even go cross-country with them


feel free to ask away any questions that you may have and you will usually get a response very quickly.
