Default My New Bonneville SSE

As promised here are the pics of my new SSE. I want to thank everyone who offered there advice to me about finding a good SSE.

The Story

I had been searching for a 90-91 SSE for some time and actually found one in Canada but the seats were bad. So just out of curiousity I did a search online for Bonneville Leather Seats and it happened to produce a result for a black SSE for sale in Wisconsin, much closer to me then Canada. I wasnt too excited at first as it was on a Madison, WI free ad listing and I have had bad luck with finding good cars on those sort of things in the past but I tracked it down anyway. I emailed the guy selling it, got some answers about the car and he sent some pics, the car looked great. He was selling the car for his mother who bought it brand new in 1991 and garage kept the car its entire life. On top of keeping in the garage she had it waxed and detailed twice a year along with regular washings. So off I went to Madison, WI to see the car. When I pulled up I couldnt believe the condition, it looked mint, I drove the car and we settled on a price of $2000.00 which given the condition of the car I felt was more then fair.

This is the first Bonneville I have ever owned and I must say I am totaly impressed. I actually sold a 94 Cadillac Eldorado to get this car and I can honestly say it is much nicer and built much better then the Cadillac was. I look forward to many years and many miles of happy driving in my new SSE.

I wanted to take this time to apologize in advance if it may seem like I only ask questions and never provide any answers to anyone. I am new to the H-Body world and do not much yet. HOWEVER, that being said if anyone ever has any questions about early W-Body Cutlass'* I can help you out with almost anything as I have owned several over the years.

Now, the pics!

Wow u got a hell of a deal. Especially for 2g'*. It seems you have the taillight delamination like many MANY do, so that'* to be expected. Factory fog lights do they still work? That interior looks mint... hows the compass and DIC work? How many miles that baby got on it?

Thanks for the kind words.

The car has 108,000 miles on it.
Fog lights work.
DIC works.
Compass works 95% of the time, I seem to always have to reset it, then its good for awhile again.

Only thing that doesnt work is the air controlls in the seats, havent checked into it as it is not that important.

Thanks Again,
Jason

Perfect! That'* what the 89-91 Bonneville must look like. Would look so cool with 17' swoopies, (some are for sale in the "For Sale" section, check it out)

Love the leather but not a fan of the buttons on the steering wheel
