Well, just bought my very first automobile: A 1996 Bonneville SE, fully loaded, all options. It'* in pretty awesome condition for a 13 year old car.. almost no rust whatsoever and very few other blemishes.

Thanks. I was actually pretty amazed at how good of condition the paint is in. It has a few scratches that can probably be buffed out but very little requiring touch up.

I do love the profile of the '96. That tiny bit of rust on the bottom of the door is about all the rust on the entire car.
