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.

Default The Results

For those keeping count, here are the statistics thus far:

-Number of respondants: 36
-Average age (arithmetic mean): 23.9 yrs
-Youngest: 16 yrs
-Oldest: 45 yrs
-Median: 20.5 yrs
-Quartile 1: 19 yrs
-Quartile 3: 26.5 yrs
-Standard Deviation: 2.8 yrs

In other words, we're generally a young bunch, with a few older, wiser outliers. I suspect the perponderance of young folk on the board is due to the penchant of 20-somethings to use the internet more than baby-boomers. Thoughts?

-Jeff

I have a hunter Green Bonneville that I got in November 1994 (it was a 93, with 22,000). I was 18 when I got it. In winter, when I put the steel wheels and snow tires on, it looks like an undercover cop car, especially since I put a set of high intensity driving lights behind the grille!!!!

19 here. Proud owner of a 93 SSE which I have had since I was 16. I fell inlove with the Bonnevilles when I looked at a parent'* friend'* 92 SSEi, but when that sale fell through, I searched for another. bought the 93 with 104,000 mi on it and 3 years later it is running strong with 140,xxx mi on it. I have a couple friends who have SE'*, but other than them, it is all old people driving them around here... and I have only gotten my car to 107. anyone know if there is a speed limiter?

Yup, there'* a speed limiter. The exact speed at which it governs varies by model; check out http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=196 for details.
