and why would you do that may i ask?
better engine?
better drive train?
better handling?
more room?
better looks?

So the G8 just isn't the cards. G/f owes too much on her car to make it work. So we're gonna try to sell her car and she'* just gonna drive mine for the year I'm gone. The money she'* paying for payments and insurance will go to the "new car fund" for when I get back.

Whats Rare about an SSEi? Dime a dozen in Collector terms. Even the GXP with 2400 units each of 2 years..... not going to happen.

Ok, ok, ok. I didn't mean that the SSEi would ever be a collector'* car. I know it won't be. I'd just take the Bonnie over the G8 because one, it looks better, two, isn't there more room in the Bonnie than the G8? I know there'* more room in a -'92-'99 than the G8. I couldn't tell ya about the handling, though I would imagine the G8 handles better. I guess I just like the fact that I'd be driving a car that has lasted an undisrupted 47 years of production.I mean, I remember telling my parents that I wanted a Bonneville, and they said, geez, I remember back when I wanted one of those. Ya know? It'* kind of a legend, in my eyes, at least. And what'* the G8? Just another fast car. IMHO.

In all those things you just said G8 > Bonneville. It'* got more room, more power, and it'* newer. The only thing I didn't like from the test drive was that the seats are more firm.

Well, then, I guess I'm wrong. But my opinion still stands.

I respect your opinion. It'* an opinion, so it can't be wrong.

So the dealer told me yesterday that my credit score was mid-600s. I just looked at my credit monitoring service and that was way wrong. What do I do?

Is it a used car lot or a stealership?
