Default Looking for another Bonneville

Looking at this car,

http://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/car/273943139.html

Here are a few more pictures he sent me:







Any opinions are welcome. No, the "white curse" doesn't scare me.

I will probably go take it for a drive this weekend.[/img]

Ok, that car is rare. SSE with cloth red interior, too bad they arn't AL7'*...

Looks to be like an ok car, but you can work him down on price, esp. with 166k miles

I WOULD STAY FAR AWAY FROM THAT CAR, unless you do a carfax.


- It has the wrong wheels

- Its missing badges

I also don't like the wierd ricer intake.... Not functional. Makes me think some 16 yr. old kid that dosen't have a clue was driving it.

Wrong wheels are for the winter tires.

Well the seller offers a free carfax, so I dont think there is anythign to hide. Looks clean and it has almost every SSEi option. Take it for a drive and test out the tranny

Just called the guy. He has the original window sticker. He is the third owner. He only changed the rims because he didn't like the white ones that were on it. Here is the vin if someone could run a carfax 1G2HZ52L6N1243525

I will be taking it for a test drive on Sunday. He still has the original airbox, spare rims with snow tires, and the CD changer stays in the car.

Well, this car needs a little work.Things I noticed:

Needs alignment (pulled hard to the right)
Right brake grabbing on hard braking
Coolant bottle low (I even asked him if it used coolant or oil and he said no)
Coolant laying on intake (see previous)
Grinding noise from rear during slow travel (sounded like a wheel bearing)


Thanks to those who commented earlier and for the carfax. I am still looking though.

I did give him a card to the club. He said he never heard of it, now he has.
