Default There are this many other bonneville fans?!

Hello all,

My name is Rob, I'm from western Mass. I am 17, and about two months ago, I bought my first car. I didn't really have anything in mind while shopping around, and I stumbled upon a used Bonneville 40th anniversary edition SSE. It had 65,000 miles on it and it was 2700 dollars, more than I wished to spend. But I bought it and I have been very happy with it thusfar. It outclasses and more often than not outdrives most other highschoolers cars around here. And it is so roomy, and fully loaded, something I did not expect to be able to find in a first car. (Although, it is quite large compared to the compact driving school cars-that took some getting used to) I found your forum this morning when I needed to turn off the car alarm (set off when i locked my keys in and Triple A came ) because it didnt have a manual when I bought it. Your forums solved the problem quick, and I think I'll stick around.

My Bonneville:

You best take care of that 40th!! We do like our Bonne'* here. We'll find ya if you don't.

As for your manual, you can try and snag one off of eBay, or go to gm.com and sign up there. You'll be able to download a PDF one once you do that.

Welcome to BC!

It looks like you got a decent deal from the looks of it. I personally don't think you could have done any better for the $$$.
