Default The New Bonnie, 1995 Bright Red Pontiac Bonneville SSE ***

After having my previous Bonneville, a 1993 SSE, destroyed in a nine-car disaster, I decided that I wanted another one. Lo and behold, I found a 1995 SSE. I haven't had time to get really good photos. Eventually I'll wash, polish, wax, condition, etc. and go to the park where I took my previous photos.

Meanwhile, these should give you an idea of what she looks like. It'* a 1995 Bright Red Pontiac Bonneville SSE with black leather interior and every option except the headlight washers.

Nice ride! Those are great looking wheels. Also I'm envious of the cushy leather and the 205hp engine

What are all the buttons next to the shifter? I am curious since I have never seen the inside of a loaded Bonneville since I just have a SE.

Thanks!

The buttons to the left of the shifter are for controlling traction control and ride characteristics. The 3-by-3 matrix of buttons behind the shifter are for controlling the 18-way driver and passenger seats. I spent about 30 minutes just playing with the seats, finding the most comfortable position

Damn you, get a different one. I need to figure out what I need to upgrade to that adjustable suspension. Do you think its all PCM?

How many miles ya got on there?

The adjustable ride relies on special front struts. I replaced the front struts when I got the car and chose not to go with adjustable ones because of cost. The adjustable struts have some sort of electromechanical device that controls the strut damping coefficient.

Very nice. I like the red. I can't believe you found another red one that nice so quickly. I told my wife to stay away from Avalanches by the way.

damn, I guess it would be a pain to upgrade my suspension to what you have. I guess I'll just get a fully adjustable aftermarket air suspension.


though,
