I'm 27 and bought a 98 SSEi about a year ago. Had an olds with a 3800 in it that got up to 210,000 miles before I sold it. The 3800s seemed reliable enough that I decided to stick with it. The 240hp is quite a step up from the 165 I previously had.

16 right here. Bought it off a 90 year old with 111,000 miles who kept it meticulous. Yes, I agree with everyone; most people think it'* an old person'* car but they don't know a good car when they see one. I have a 94 SE with a CAI and I could beat 90% of the cars in my Junior parking lot at my high school. I mean, come on! Yeah, uummmmm, let me take your 91 ford probe with a (I don't know) 1.2 liter over my 3800. I'll leave you in the dust. Now I'm cool.

I'm 20, almost 21... No one expects the "grandparent" car to be fast but once they take a ride in it... they say no more.

It seems to me I have yet to see anyone under 25 own a bonny.
I just bought my parents 99 SLE becasue my 85 monte carlo w/ tons of mods met a tree @ 85 mph. minor damage but decieded to sell and buy the bonny.

BTW im 20 yrs old

also why is it that everyone i see thinks the bonny is my parents car. do kids not own nice cars???? i mean some bonnys cost alot of money but 3 year old cars do depricate to a affordable price.

19 here! Sounds good to not be alone driving a car that is usually seen with older people behind the wheel. But I also have a friend with a Crown Victoria and met some of his friends. So I have met people who have the same image problem we get. But good to hear that other people see the potential of the Bonneville.

I'm 18 and i get, "Tell your dad he has a nice car" all the time. They won't believe it'* mine til they see me driving it on a regular basis. Mine has a few teenager mistakes in it, from a 42 year old man that owned it before. It'* now in it'* second life, and i baby it like an old man would. Does that make me old? Hell no
