Not to sound morbid or disrespectful, but I'd be interested in knowing what the Vollmer family would be looking to get financially for the car.

I did the unthinkable and the one thing I regret now... I traded it in for my 06 Cobalt! Hmm I wanted something new and cute... and now I want to pay it down some and get a 2001-2005 Bonne!!! I was thinking about buying my ex bf'* 2002 SSEi but I don't really know if I could stand to drive it since he passed away last December in Iraq. It'* be a fun ride but sad to be in at the same time especially since I'm still working on getting over it. :(
So I'll just have to get one of my own!

I'm sorry, Melissa.
I just made the connection... You, Chad and his family are always in our thoughts.

Now: I'm sure you can trade that Cobalt off for a real sweet Bonnie in your own time! Keep us posted!
All the best to you over the Holidays.
Adam

You may have already figured this out, but just in case, there is a red plastic covered post under the hood marked + that can be use to jump start the car if necessary. Hook the red one there and the black one to the engine block or alternator bracket. That + post is also usually the easiest place to tap for power when installing aftermarket accessories like an alarm or sound system. Just be sure to fuse the power wire because the post is hooked up straight to the battery.
A humorous anecdote concerning "remote mount" batteries:
I rode to a football game in my friend'* Volvo XC90 full sized SUV. Nice ride BTW. And the people in the Tahoe parked next to us had been there tailgating a while listening to the pregame on the radio. As they got ready to go into the stadium one of them tried to start the engine to be sure they hadn't run down the battery. It just clicked, not enough charge to turn over the engine.
So they asked my friend for a jump but nobody had cables. They finally found some and popped the hoods. The Chevy battery was up front in the normal place and they got the jumper cables all hooked up to it fine, but they couldn't find the Volvo battery. I told them it didn't matter because Volvo put a hot post up front just like on your Cobalt and that can be used to jump start. Oh no, not on my brand new SUV, we're hooking it up to the battery. (he'* a Ford guy.) So after looking all over and finally looking it up in the owner'* manual, they figured out that it was under the cargo area at the rear of the vehicle. And it is buried under there deep! They set about trying to dig down to it, taking out all the tailgating crap they brought coolers, chairs, blankets, etc., and finally realized they didn't have the tools necessary to remove the cover over the battery compartment.
While they were back there wasting time, I had hooked up the jumper cables to the Volvo under the hood there and let it charge the Tahoe battery. When I became convinced that they weren't going to get to the Volvo battery in time for kick-off, I motioned to the guy'* wife inside the Tahoe to try to start it. It fired right up first try. The look on everyone'* face was priceless.

Melissa...

If you can get it I would...I'm sure there are good memories there... And I couldn't see Chad wanting to see the car sit a lot.. Never know, he just might tag along for a ride

If you don't get it, at the least it can be sold to a member of the club that will cherish it as much as he did..

But it would be good to see you in it

yeah im totally in love with his car and i was around for alot of the things he did to it under the hood so i learned alot about it also. and I LOVE the way it sounds when you drive it! but i don't want to be pushy with his parents... let alone bring it up too soon and not be in the posistion to get rid of mine just yet! I would be so upset if someone else got their hands on it... I think I'm really going to look into it maybe sometime after next summer b4 winter of 08! =) Can't wait im in love with bonnes!

If you are interested in it, I would talk to them now, and work out something where they wil keep it til you can sell the Cobalt. I'm sure they'd be willing to work with you on that.

BTW, if you think driving Chad'* car will make you uncomfortable, then don't feel there'* any pressure on you to get it. It'* a car, not a shrine. Keeping it in the Club would be cool, but that'* not enough reason to get yourself into a wierd situation.

Yeah I've been tossing the idea around in my head for a while bc i don't want to just jump on it right now. I emailed his mom a while back and told her to let me knwo what they discuss and if they do want to sell it to let me know so I can see if I'm in the right position at the time. She said it'* too soon to try and talk to the family about it just yet but that when she does get them together to do so she'll keep me posted. So this gives me time to warm up to the idea and see if I'll be okay! I think the biggest thing is paying my car down some... I'll get use to driving his car. It'sjust the " Chad use to sit in this driver seat eavery day and I was right beside him" idea. Know what I mean? Not trying to get all sappy on you , but that'* what it boils down to. Speaking of which, I need to scoot over to the cemetery soon b4 the snow gets deeper here and visit him. Haven't shared a beer with him since MAY! He'* due for a drink!! =**)
