Default Guess what I did This Weekend.

This Weekend I decided to go up to Sacramento to meet up With my buddy to look at a couple apartments n stuff for when i move up there. I love sacramento a lot and cant wait till I move up there...

Any ways, thats not the point of this post. While I was up there, we were cruisin in his 93 SSEi and I saw what i believed to be a Grand Prix. When we were driving back home from the mall, we decided to stop by the dealership and check out this "Grand Prix". When we pulled closer... I noticed that the front end was a little different from a Grand Prix...It was a Bonneville!!!!! And I notices something else... It was not like any other Bonneville.... The fog lights were different...It was an SSEi!!!!!
Right Away, i decided I had to test drive this thing... And I did... I test drove a 2000 Bonneville SSEi and let me tell those who have yet to drive one... these things are great!!!! Compared to Jossue'* 93, This one os a lot better, it handles better, it has a lot more power, the ride is smoother, it is a very nice car.
So, to make it seem like I wasnt just in it for a test drive, we decided to check the numbers... They want $9,999 and a $3,000 down payment...just because I have no credit...
The car is niice, but on the driver side, towards the back, it has a nice rub. It seems as if the previous owner had rubbed against a car or pole, no dent, just really bad rub. And on the hood, it has 3 nice quarter sized dents. Other than that, its a clean car.

Ok, just wanted to share my experience with the club because I was so excited.

Shuuuuuurrre .....



Before you go out and buy the first one you see, just take some time to search the web and local listings to arm yourself with knowledge regarding pricing and what else is out there...in 2000 Bonnevilles that is...of course.

The Car has about 75,000 miles on her...I dont know if I want to do it....Im 18 and 10 thousand dollars isnt exactly in my hands in the near future, heck...3 thousand dollars is still a little steep, and the want about $400 a month.....Honestly...I just wanted to drive it.... What you guys think???Should I go for it??? I could prolly sell some stuff to get the cash....
I swear I meant the car not the member..... LOL!!!

And the cosmetics arent something I cant do. I could prolly pull off a carbon Fiber hood since the car is black.

I used to have a '93 SSEi. And, although I do miss it very much, I do adore my 2000. I wouldn't trade back to my '93 at all.

I'm sorry, but I could not follow that at all. Was that actually two sentences? Maybe three?

Not to be rude, but do you think you can edit that to make sense? Thanks!

Please don't do this. Not just because none are available, but just please don't ruin a good car.

For the record, your 93 will outhandle that 2k if you simply update your worn suspension components. 92-99 SSEi'* have a lower and more centered front-rear center of gravity. They have less body roll in the turns when properly cared for.
