My current 93 she'* given me grey hairs. I've since replaced every single part except the egr and the washer fluid tank. But she has given me a wealth of knowledge about the bonneville and if it wasn't for her I would have never knew about this great club

I owned a 72 Grand torino that I got for free from a guy on a car lot that felt bad for me :( (long story)

The entire car was primer red, which I painted flat black with a brush, YES a brush!! I believe it had a 400ci 2 barrel carb that did okay for its size.

I realized soon after I got it why it was free

I did a brake stand (thats what you did back in the day when you were young and had a car) and as I sat there thinking I was cool, the cabin filled up with smoke

I had to pull over and get out of the car. I was gagging on the smoke from burning the tires. I popped the trunk and I saw pretty much most of the ground beneath it. LOL both rear wheel wells were rotted, heck beyond rotted. They werent there!!

I got caught driving it unregistered and attaching plates and it was towed. I had to walk home and the next day I got the car out and junked it. End of story

1995 Bonneville SSE


No, J/K.

Actually, while my friends' cars always broke down, this kept running. The only time it died on me was when the starter went bad just after I got the car.

I had a 1991 Sunbird for a while before the Bonnie, and that wasn't much to be desired.

Out of the three vehicles I have owned, the bonnie is the worst. Hate to say it, but it'* the truth. BUT, it'* also the one I couldn't bear not to have!

The worst one my mom and dad had was a 1995 Ford taurus. The trans blew at 98k miles, replaced, and blew again at 108k, they tried to say my mom broke it and they weren't going to cover it, so she was drving it back home, trans slipping, and POOF! went the head gasket, dumped coolant in the engine and she blew it up. It had a 3.8 and sucked for power. Pretty bad when my Bimmers 2.5 I-6 makes 170hp compared to the ford 3.8'* 160.
