Default what should I buy

As most of you know I had my accident the other day. And because of that hopfuly I should be receiving an insurance check for about 9k (price of the truck) now I though of a few vehicles that could be a possibility to get. Now of course by now your in that computer chair yelling two inches from the computer monitor (or monitors in bill'* case) that I should get a bonneville but don't worry I can hear you screaming "BONNEVILLE" from here. The problem is what is my best bet for 9k? I already have a green 93 se in my collection and since I know this fourm has quite the collection of knowledgeable people who know their 'bonnevilles' I'm looking for some imput on what year and model I should look for. I also have my eyes on getting a bonne with a supercharger this time around to give me a boost on the highway (cheap pun intented)

you know the 87-91 bonnevilles are calling you, they command u to buy one of their brothers. DO NOT DEFY THE 87-91'*, it just might be the last thing you ever do

I've actually have only gotten to see the truck once since the accident to get my stuff from it and it was way too dark to actually take any pictures. But today I'm headed in to my dads shop and ill be able to snap a few shots of the truck.
