Default Boy, she cleaned up well...

Here she is. My dad took advantage of the nice weather and his current employment status (none) and cleaned her up a bit.

Remember that kid who lost both front teeth at once...?


This one you can see the bumper issue...


Look! it'* a whole new engine... and by new I mean clean


She almost matches the trailer. I will be going home in 1.5 weeks to hopefully give her a good look over and possibly make my decision on what to do with it. Need to consult with my Shipping and Receiving clerk (my father) on this as well

That'* what it was bought for, but I haven't committed to it 100% yet since it is the SSE SC. I posted about parting it because I thought it was worse than it turned out to be. Still has its share of issues, but hasn't religated itself to the boneyard yet. That, and the fact that I just got slammed with school work, so I now probably won't even be able to part it until after classes are over in May since I am in rochester, NY and the car is in Binghamton, NY (2.5 hrs away)

The engine looks clean. Whats wrong with it? The only flaw I noticed was the back bumper.

Well, there is the normal surface rust on the quarters/wheel wells (kind can see in the one picture), dent on the passenger door, both front door molding panels are chipped at the front, the grill is missing and it has 177k. Rest of the car is on par with, or is above average condition for the age and miles.

Sell the Lumina and use the money to fix it up.
Would seem pretty rare to find a */C'd SSE. How many of them were built???????

Selling the lumina is a thought... but since both bonnevilles are not reliable yet, I have to rule that out. maybe the Lottery can help me out with this. I will probably be working on both at the end of may. Going to atleast take what I need off the red one for the white one and then decide what to do with the red one.

As for how many SSE SC there are, not sure. But there has been 3-5 on the forum that I know about and there is a green 94 in Kirkwood (15 min from my parents) that got bumped in the front and has been sitting infront of this garage for 6 months. I asked them when I first saw it if it was forsale and they said no. Next time I am home, i am going to ask again cause it looks really good. There was also a SE SC in binghamton about 1.5 years ago. First one I had ever saw. 93-94ish. Would like to find that one again...
