$2,000. Well in it'* state now it doesn't sound like it'* worth that. But being a Bonne and the fact that it can be fixed, it'* worth it! Good find!

That'* what I thought. Those ***** and little things are minor.

How'* the tranny? Sounds like it will be fun to fix up. After I get a newer Bonne my current one will become my "project car".

Man I'd have some FUN cleaning that engine!!

Sometimes I wish mine was dirty again so I can shine the hell out of it.

sounds like a project, but you got it to a pretty good price!
Just out of curiosity, what is the displacement on the older (87-91) Bonnies with the LG3 and the LN3?
