I am now a proud owner of a boosted 96 Bonneville and can now proudly display in my sig that we own two. All thats left are plates and insurance. The 93 now has to sit outside (sadly since its only a two car garage) so ill take reccomendations for a decent car tarp.

Everybody gets a free mug of beer on me. Cheers!

Since this is supposed to be my mom'* car and the title is under her name she said no pics. But before she ever said that I already took a pic of me and my dad attempting to get the car to shift from out of park (Tee Hee!):

The car NEEDS the interior to be cleaned top to bottom, they had little kids so theres cookie crumbs everywhere and the carpet is a bit stained. ANd it smells so I hope shampooing the carpet and cleaning the leather thoroughly will take care of it.

I got this from a guy who used to work for GM so he actually bought this direct from the company 2 months after they test it. He said that the original cupholders broke frequently, so he had a better built one installed himself requiring the shift console completely removed and it took two days. He also had a Delco 12-cd changer installed in the trunk. The car is 128k, and the buttons for adjusting the shocks still work, so I guess this car is among the unique ones. Theres a wet spot on the side of the engine but its a given with these cars and will be looked into. For the price I got it I cant complain, nope not one bit.

Pics will come Monday after it gets cleaned and I wax it. Ill also debut the pics of my 93 which I already took a while ago but need to post. Yes you will see them in the "Your Ride" section very soon.

Hey now!

Its my mom'* car so ill still be driving the 93. She will let me "tinker" with the 96 a bit (she will get some pleasant surprises the morning after I fix er up ) So I still have love for us 92-95 NA'ers, dont worry.

You can't get everything you want in life. Its a lesson I learned while waiting for half a year in searching for our next car. I wanted a 95 SSEi with Gold rims and in ether red or gold paint reasonably within our Chicagoland area and in good condition. Instead I got a 96 with gold rims but with a conservative green color at a damn good price.
