Default RETURN OF AN OLD FRIEND

Hello, everyone. I'ts been a long time since I've been here! Anyway, about 1 year ago I sold my 96 Bonneville sse to help with moving debt. Well, now I'm moving again, getting married, and selling my GTO. But i'm not totally saddened, as the lady that bought my Bonneville has put less than 1000 miles on it and is selling it back to me. (I'll know Tues for sure if this will all happen) I'll miss my GTO but I always had a warm spot for my Bonneville. Ayway, I'm a big forum junkie and looking forward to posting. Here'* pics of both cars:

Hey welcome back!

Yea, sometimes you have to do things that you don't want to. Good to hear that you might be getting your old ride back

Thank you. Yeah, i loved that car, at the time (a year ago) I considered selling the GTO and keeping the Bonneville, but it was easier to sell the Bonneville. Once this is all said and done, it will be nice to not have a car payment for the first time in many years! Plus I have all kinds of 3800 parts laying around my shop. Good lord! You guys have alot of emoticons!

9:15 in 8th mile. The indipendent rear axle had bad wheel-hop. Killed my 0-60 time!

I didn't know if you were still at McEveen or not. I went over to the boat dealer for some 301 aerospace protectant but then again I spend a little more time over in Summerville since my fiancee used to live over on that end.

That'* pretty bad. Even my FWD Bonne is quicker than that.
You were right in selling that dog.
