Default Newbie with a 1995 Resurrection

This is my newly aquired 95' Bonneville SE with 98k on the OD.

I will have it on the road next week and will post some more pics
once its all back together....
It was a smack to the nose that took out the bumper, radiator support, passenger
fender,hood,both air bags.
Also getting all the little dings,dents and scratches out!

Was driving an 86' Mercury Capri 5.0 but had to release her back to the wild.
Buying our first house....needed something that would suit our 'Family" needs for now.

This baby "IS" going to get a System put in tho!
I surely miss my stereo!

Later!

I'd love to have the time and money for a project like that! Keep us up to date for sure. This should be real cool!

Good luck on the restoration and welcome to the club! I'm glad it'* being fixed rather than having a perfectly nice Bonne totalled. Nice wheels too.

Thanks for all the warm welcomes!

Unfortunately I am not the one doing the body work...
I was able to sneek over to my buddies shop to at least get these pics.
He was also working on the car before I new he had it....I would have
loved to have captured the crash pics....

All in all...I'm getting a pretty good deal I feel...I know the guy real well and
scored the car for $2500 all said and done!
I will continue to keep you posted and give you some nice "repaired" pics!

It is branded with a Salvaged Auto title...but I don't care!
The frame is straight as an arrow and didn't take the hit.
It was all upper nose damage...

Anyway...I will be researching all your rides to gain some idea for the future.
Thanks again!
Jeff
