Default The $100 Bonneville

What a score. I found this car on Craigslist for $100. It was not running when I got it, but was able to repair it for a little cash out of pocket. The owner thought the car had blown head gaskets, but as luck would have it, it was just the UIM gaskets. I give this forum all of the credit for the easy repairs. This forum rocks.

Got to love it when someone else'* lack of knowledge works out in your favor.

There is some minor cosmetic issues, but hey for $100 what more could someone ask for. I will be making some minor paint repairs, but there are no dents.

great deal. a friend of mine used to buy and sell intrigues and got a few over the years with "locked up engine, needs replaced". He pulled the plugs, pumped the coolant out of the engine and did the upper intake and lower gaskets and had a good car for all of at most $90 in parts.
