That gets the Venom chuckle Award for today.

I came here because I typed a search for "more Hp for the Northstar' and hit a link that landed me in the Northstar section, Got bored with looking for a "cure " so I made it a show car. It'* not aggressivly fast but it looks kinda nice.

Well, at first, the night I got the car, I Yahood (I hate google, it'* evil) "Pontiac Bonneville", and was poking around and found Bonneville Club. I poked around for a few minutes and didn't really think much about it. Then, the next day, I was on cardomain looking at Bonnevilles, and Pat'* page had a link. I clicked it (not realizing what it was) and signed up. It took 2 days before I realized it was the same page. lol

Another victim of Google here. Was searching to see if there was an easy way to convert my rear drums to disc brakes. Backdoored in from the 92-99 mech section, and signed up that night. Haven't left since, and probably won't even after my Bonnie leaves me.

I Googled "common problems bonneville", like many others, but not because I had a problem, rather I wanted to find out what could go wrong. I hated being taken advantage of at a garage. So I spent hours that first night reading up on everything. I loved all of the info, instructions, stories, etc...what really got me was the sense of humor everyone had. I remember thinking, "...these people have my sense of humor...whacked."

I still spend hours a day on here....now that I think about it....

I googled 'bonneville ssei' and under images, saw lakevillessei'* car, and it said bonnevilleclub.com, so i was of course curious, poked around for awhile, then i finally decided i did want a bonne, and signed up 3 days after i got the car. couldn't sign up right away with an aol screen name account, so i had to figure out how to do aim mail

haven't looked back since, i like bc alot and i'm glad it'* on the 'net

I surfed on in and found that there was a chat room going on. Got involved with Jim W in a chat and decided to join. Best move a Bonneville owner could ever do.

Either an internet search or a reference on the old Yahoo BC. I don't recall which. If I hadn't lurked as long as I did before joining, I'd have beaten jr's3800.

I actually found BC before purchasing the Zilla.
