Awesome ride you go their! The LE is only relative to the amount of posts that you have posted and not your car model.

Thanks! I have been driving a '94 Intrepid ES for the past 5 years and am sad to see it go. I did pretty much all of the work on the Intrepid myself, including reman tranny, 4 new struts, auto headlight install, and numerous other mods, but that car isn't even in the same class (in my mind) as the Bonneville.

I had a choice at an auto-auction 5 years go between an NA '93 Bonneville SSE w/ 104k miles and the '94 Intrepid ES w/ 94k miles. Since then I have put 72k miles (now reading 167k miles on the odometer). The Intrepid has basically paid for itself, but the little problems became too much to handle. I was a member of DodgeIntrepid.net and am glad to see an active forum like DI.net for the Bonnevilles!

Now I have a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty that will run out about the same time as I have the Bonnie paid off. No wrenching for me for the next 5 years (if I can keep myself off of it that is!).

No wrenching doesn't mean no Mods

You have LOTS of options with that. I drove the same car with 400 lb/ft a few weeks ago. Damn Fine ride.

Floor mats are in the trunk. Those pictures are from the Autotrader.com listing that the dealer had. I'll be taking more once I actually pick the car up. Digital cameras and running your own web-server are great!
