Default Well 'lo...

I'm probably going to be hanging around here quite a bit...

My Bonny? Well, it'* my dad'*, but eh, once I get my license, I hope it'* mine...

It'* a '91 SSE with 300,000km on it, but running like a champ... rust is beginning with some bubbles on the right quarter panel, but a new paintjob will fix all... Yes, I want this car over a '98 Nissan Altima GXE, yucky 4-banger

Currently it'* sitting in the garage... and it'* done so for a year because since we got the Nissan, my dad'* been driving our 1985 Toyota Cressida (if it were in better condition I'd take it)... rustbucket, but still running strong... it'll be driven until it dies (then the Bonny comes out )... but when that is, I don't know :(

My car'* currently got a K&N air filter in it, and what I assume is a original exhaust. Gotta love the 10-speaker Delco sound system, badass stock stuff... just lacking a CD player... Yesterday, after going to the scrapyard (for those of you in the Greater Toronto Area, it'* the big one at Steeles & Sewells Road), my dad and Ipulled some parts... We got a one-piece antenna off of a '95 Grand Prix, as our power one allows water into the car and doesn't work... it fits. Also got some hood strut thingies off of a '92 Buick LeSabre, they match. Surprisingly, we also ripped a strut tower bar off it, and it fits our '91

So yeah, hi.

Welcome to the club. There has been a large recent influx of TORONTO members...lol, take THAT Minnesota

Always good to add another 87-91 to the party as well. Good luck with the Bonne, and, yup, I just added a strut bar too. That thing is awesome

Hey, welcome to the party, even if you are another canuck.



Yup, these stereos are pretty good for stock. You might consider a CD changer that plays through the FM band. That'* what I did. I ditched my Jensen to go back stock.

Welcome!

:LOL: the toronto Maple Laughs.. or Stinkin Loafs... :LOL: whatever.. hopefully they'll do better next season considering just bout every player gets paid close to 1 million a season ( which is what the average joe makes in a life time ).

Welcome aboard...

Make sure the Bonnie is started once a week or so.. and driven at least up and down the driveway to keep all the parts, bearings, seals well lubed.. and that includes turning on the A/C for 5 minutes each time.

Damm.. I"m loosing count of how many Ontario members there is now..

A/C? What A/C?! It didn't work when we got the car... needs a new condensor, which we don't have the money at the moment for a new one... I think ones from the scrapyard have to have matching years - one from say an '89 SSE will not work with the 1991... and I think Buick (if not, Olds) ones won't work, either, we've tried. The car does get started every now and then, and I somewhat washed it yesterday just to get some dust and such off... It'* going to come out of storage, emissions tested, and plates renewed (we didn't do it last year) soon, as we don't know when our Toyota is going to die... standby car
