Default Help me find a Bonneville!

Looks like my son finished off the 89. For those who missed the post, he backed into the cement base of a parking lot light. We tried changing the lower control arm but the car no longer sits level. So we're looking for a new car.

We'd like to find:
1996-1999 Bonneville
1997-2000 Grand Prix GT or GT clone
1997-2000 Regal

We're trying to stay under $3,000 and find something with less than 100,000 miles. Are we dreaming?

It would be nice to find something between Buffalo & Syracuse or between Buffalo & Erie, PA . We'll go farther if someone finds a real gem. Keep your eyes open for me!

I'll see if that dealer still has that Cali car I looked at a month or so ago. It does need an intake but there is no rust, none, on the undercarriage at all. I think it was a 96 - goldish color, cloth interior SE for about 3k.

I think you're thinking of that 40th in Ohio, it went quick at a bit over 3k.
I posted about the one I'm thinking of before (no pics) but it was awhile ago so it may not even be there anymore. I'll let you know, should be by Tuesday.

I'll keep an eye out for you here. Nothing jumps to mind right now, but I'll be looking.

Not sure if you're still looking, but saw this in an Auto Extra
1997 PONTIAC BONNEVILLE SE, v-6, auto, cd, leather, moonroof, all the toys, pa inspected, $2,850, HUCK'* MOTORS, 1587 Mahoning Ave. Youngstown, Ohio, 877-459-8119

Here'* the link
http://autoextra.com/vehicledetail/a...ce-2850/tp-DLR

I don't see any mention of miles though.
It is a toll free number if you want to call.
Not sure how for Youngstown is from here, but might be worth driving a little further West for you. I think we have a few members near Youngstown, I am sure someone would take a look for you.
