Yup. Had 90k on it. Mostly rear end damage, too. Somebody got a sweet motor, and that'* how I got into the Bonneville finally.

94 Buick Roadmaster Limited....had firmer suspension. Probably the same sway bars as the Impala. LT1, all factory options. Big car, but moved like a bat out of hell. Even had those cool flourescent marker lights on the rear pillars.

Lilpooky and I were in it, took $10,000 in damage to the rear end. Shoved the trunk into the back seat. Good thing Katie wasn't with us. We were on the way to pick her up from school. Buckled the rear deck, buckled both joints where the rear quarter panels meet the roof (shoved the 1/4'* up half an inch higher than the roof). The only thing not damaged on the back end was the tank (it buckled, but didn't rupture) and the brand new receiver hitch. Whole back end was inside out. Impact took my Chevy Racing ball cap off my head and launched it to the rear deck. Blew out Disc L4/5 in my lower back. Exploded it. Had surgery for it, so now I'm 1/4" shorter. It was nasty. We were rolling about 5-10 mph when we took the hit. That was last May 6th.

Kim was ok the next day (after the killer headache). She was alot shorter than the seat. Big leather seat gave her perfect support. She'* really nervous about driving when there'* alot of cars around now.

I wasn't able to go back to work until July. Gave me some time to tinker with the Bonneville between pain pills.

J, the 92 SSEi'* all had the digital EGR. The NA models didn't have one. You're ok.

But no roller tip. :( Could probably go to PAW and buy a set of stampd roller rockers w/ roller tips for not that much (for a small block Chevy). Would help and be cheap.

I know the difference between the 92 and 95 front grille. You'd never pull it off. It would either be you or Deathrat!
