The funniest part of this whole decision is the fact that my wife drives an Olds Alero for her company car. She'* going to have 2 Olds logo'd keys on her keychain. It'* going to be pretty funny for the first couple of weeks, LOL.

This truck is beautiful. First thing that I'm going to do to it though (once it'* here and nice out) is shampoo the carpets. It had a slight odor of cigarettes (and/or cigars) that I couldn't smell, but my wife, with her super "I'm 8 months pregnant" nose, could smell. Just to be safe, I'll take a shampoo the carpets and get some lysol to spray throughout the air ducts to hopefully nuetralize all of the odors.

All in all, I'm happy with the purchase even though we spent more money than we wanted (or realistically could) on it. Being our first child, we don't know what the financial picture is yet and I currently don't have a job... There are a lot of unknowns in our lives right now and it was a difficult decision to make, but I'm confident that it will all work out great in the end.

Oh and the Bravada is jet black, just like the bonnie! It looks GREAT! I can already hear what our families are going to say. See we're from an area that has A LOT of menonite families and their cars are all black and none-descript. We were asked if we were planning on joining into the menonite community when we bought the bonneville, now they're going to be ragging on us even more... LOL...

This is not my Bravada, but basically mine looks exactly like this one. Although Mine has a hood deflector, ventshades on all 4 doors and sunroof, as well as a deflector for the rear window. Mine also has running boards on the sides that will be removed!!!
