Well it'* a third family car right? That means you'll prob just pay for gas? SO you can save up, and keep looking for that dream bonnie then, with no loss really. I drove an 88 nova (with a stick) till i got my bonnie (about 2-3 years later). I miss the stick, and the nova is still a hoot to drive cause of it (thing roars for some reason) but you can't take my torque away from me!!!!

I'll grudgingly drive the Civic for now. I was relieved to discover that it didn't have a buttload of stickers and a big wing on the back though!!!

In about a year, maybe a little more, I'll be able to. It'* not just a matter of money. It'* also a matter of practicality and availability. I'm waiting for a good deal on a good car...people here seem rather reluctant to sell their Bonnies.

I know someone who might let me drive hers around for fun though. It'* a silver SE...I think a 97, but I could be wrong. But boy is it pretty. I'll have to point her to the MN Bonneville Club.

Hey, Your in Grand Forks?!?!?! I get up there about 5-6 times per school year as one of my best friends is going to UND to be a commercial pilot. We'll have to meet up and I'll let you take the helm of a true Bonne (green/ghetto gold) so you can see how well a Bonneville can hold together as mine has 194,7xx miles and it still hauls *** and rides very smooth.
I gave a ride today to one of my brothers college friends from New York and he was very impressed with my L27. He said he thought I could put a good fight up against his 1994 Caddy Eldorado with the 275 hp Northstar V8 since his car weighs about 3950 lbs compared to my 34xx lbs.
Anyhow, I'll be sure and send you a pm when I know when the next time is I'll be up there.
And, yes by all means direct your frined to the MNBonnevilleclub.

Anyhow TTYL,
Stylez

Forgot to offer my condolences. At least you should be getting better gas mileage than Bonnevilles so that should allow you to save more.

No pix, but it was the sam color as my car, but he had chrome rims, with light grey leather. He really liked the layout of the Bonneville ****-pit. especially my wood dash kit.
I offered to trade my car + $1000 and he didn't really want to. Ah, what the hell, I should have waited until he was drunk before I made the offer. Oh well, I'll have to keep on dreaming.

You think the car would even be purchased right now if it had that stuff?
