Default My Bonneville landed in Germany

Hi Everyone,
well it seemed like a never ending story but it took almost 4 month after i saw the car until it was finally here.
Its a 1999 Bonneville in Dark Cherry with Tan Interior.
See Germans dont build cars like Pontiac and the Bonneville is by far the coolest car for a daily driver.
I allready had a 1988 Bonneville and and a 1993 SSEi in Black. But this one is the coolest one. It has every option possible, drives awesome and is perfect with only 40000 miles on it.
I love this board cause i always find answers for every question i have. Thanxs a lot and i hope you like the car

This picture was taken right after the car arrived here

Very nice

I see it has swoopie rims on it also, did you put those on? Those are sweet looking rims to begin with, and they look even better on the older generations IMO

I vaguely remember that ebay auction....actually, I think I was bidding on that very one! Either way, I remember seeing it, and it went for a very good price IIRC.

Wow, right on. Good to see some GM love across the pond. I hope that SSE serves you well. Interesting that it has rims from a 2000 on it.

Cool

What you do? Have your finger over the lense on that first picture? The fronts in focus and the back isn't.
