Thats what its is probably going to take to help make up my mind. I have yet to drive an L67 Bonneville. I long for SC'd cars

Any one wanna let me drive so I can get a taste?

Hmm, I wonder what the SC is like on the Millennia, prolly not as torquey eh?

As much as I would like to help Tam with getting rid of Hollywood, that white monster of yours would be a closer to what I'm looking for.

Mind you, you'd have to get all that "stuff" done first that we talked about a few night ago...LOL, just kidding.

Lets keep this option open.

Talk me out of a Millennia...

That is easy enough to do... think about it... the Millennia * has a 2.3L V-6 that puts out 210 [email protected] RPM and 210 [email protected] RPM (all that makes for an impressive 0-60 time of 8.2 seconds) while the SSEi puts out over 210 ft-lbs. just off idle and 280 [email protected] RPM and 240 [email protected] RPM...

now, tell me which car sounds better...

Well, it wasn't really meant to be a joke. I like the styling of the Millennia, as well as the Bonneville

I was out shopping for real estate today and stopped off at some back *** corner used car lot. There was a bone stock 1997 SSEi, in teal (similar to Aliens') that had just arrived. It had all the bells and whistles including black leather interior and only 117 000 kms (like 90 000 miles..if that) listed for $11 800. This is a bit spendy for me right now considering I want my loft more then a new car.

All things considered, I'd go for a newer Bonneville over the Mazda Millenia *.

As its stands right now with RLD...I plan on doing the rust repair myself and just live with the peeling clearcoat. I purchased a can of clear coat spray and that will be just fine. After washing my car and have her glistening up good....shes a keeper

personally i dislike the millenia and most mazda cars except the mx6 and the newer mazdas that go Zooooom Zoooooom like the commercials clearly state, but anyways 11000 is way to much for a 97 bonneville with 90000 miles, but hey if your looking for a fast 4 door car then id go with a bonneville or a hmmm i dunno reallly but im sure theres something out there

I'd have given the guy $9500 tops for that 97 SSEi that was there, maybe he'd want my 89 SE to go along with it.

I guarantee you...when she is clean...line it up against any 89 Bonne left on the road..no comparison

Whoa...sorry for the attitude!

I believe he is speaking in Canadian funds. In USD that would be like $2,000...
