Glad to see she made it there safe and sound! Did you have the extra set of rims shipped in the trunk?

That car is gorgeous! I'd trade mine for that in a heartbeat.

So the engineer in me has to ask: if it breaks down, you'd be waiting a little while for parts?

Most of the parts are easy to get here. only when it comes to Bodyparts it takes a little longer but its worth it. I just love american cars cause german cars are either to expensive for what you get or are just so little.
The Bonneville is just my favourite car. You really get everything and for a little price compared to european cars. Plus the cars have much more charisma

Hmmm...In the USA its cool to have a BMW and in Germany its cool to have a Pontiac...lol BMWs dont cost the money there like they do here. Heck there you can get a V6 7 series with cloth interior.

My brother-in-law lives just outside Nuernberg and I couldn't imagine an American car fitting through the local streets. His Audi A3 is almost too big.

You seem to have experience driving these cars on German roads, so how do you do it?

I am used to drive big cars since i had my first Bonneville and i drove a 93 Buick Park Avenue for almost 3 years. Its funny when i go to some places and the Bonne is always the biggest car on the lot cause it seems to be even bigger then most of the 7 Series from BMW.
For the last 2 years i drove a 91 Chevy Beretta which i bought for only $ 1200 with only 23000 miles on it. Nobody knew about that car or what it is so this way i got it really cheap but it was a great car. Never had any problems with it but i always wanted another Bonneville again cause o the comfort and size. You always feel like you are driving an Airplane. I met this lady a few weeks ago who drives an Opel Corsa which is the size of the Bonneville Hood HAHA So she was really shocked about the bonne size


The Shipping was actually real cheap and did cost $ 700 from Jersey to Germany.
