Default I am Bonnevilleless

I sold my Bonneville. the first time in 12 years I am without a Bonneville.
I feel strange, A little lightheaded and wooozy.
I had to do it. I didn't want to put anythng more into it.
I had hoped someone from here would have taken it.
It was my mothers car. When she died, my step-father sold it to me. Now he died, and I need to move on.

I do miss it.

I do have a Northstar engine now though. I could stay for that right?
I just need to change my signature.

Sorry to hear that your Bonnie-less.

Stick around the club, and enjoy the people, here.

Did you tell the new owner about BC?

yes, I told him. He is older and I don't think he is interested, but his daughter has a boyfriend that may stop by.

Why wouldn't you want to put anything more into a car that you're so, or were so fond of?

Sorry for your loss :( I too will be bonneville-less next week. I already am starting to get that empty feeling inside.

It was getting rust around all the door bottoms, the radiator leaked, there was a mysterious oil leak that nobody could find.
I wanted to sell it while it still looked good. I didn't want to see any rust problems get worse.

I purchased a 2003 Cadillac DeVille DTS. 54,000 mi. Black in and out. 4.6L 300hp Northstar. Excellent condition.
fully loaded, I will take some pictures Sunday
