Default The ode to "maymybonneliveforever"

Some time ago- some of you may remember that Frank'* 1990 SSE was up on the block, as it was time to renew his plates, but he decided not to as he picked up a 1995 SSEi.

I have been stupidly busy over the past few months, and I have been meaning to do this post sooner, but haven't gotten around to it.

Frank was very attached to his SSE, of which I can completly understand after having two of these gens myself. I know it was a hard decision for him, but I think that he made the right one. The 1990 served him well, and with 483KM has been many places and seen a lot of Canada and of the USA. I asked Frank if he had any pictures of the 1990, of which he said that he only had two. SO as a final tribute to the 1990 I have taken some pictures of her beside Majestic, and with of course with Frank.

Some elements are now living on in Majestic. I learned a lot from Franks 1990, and there will be many spring projects as a result of. Unfortunatly this car had a lot of cancer, but I have saved as much of her as I can, and some of this car will live on in mine without a doubt.

without further adue....

the pics!

We had just parked the cars at this point, as we had to remove Frank'* rims and tires, to take back to his 95.

True Bonneville love right here!!! (I did the exact same pose when I had to let the 1989 go)




And now the 1995. Im really partial to the champagne on Tan. Interior is really nice, AL7'* in very good shape, and Frank will have a present from me for his 1995, the next time I see him.

Default Double 1990 SSE PICS

Frank I love your cars, they look like my car on steroids, when it was younger and antique white instead of its current colors. My Bonneville had to ride the jack and tree stump for 6 days while I put in a steering rack. But at 4 wheels to the ground these machines are wonderful. I'll probably get a mid '90'* model when my baby retires to the junkyard. I hope it takes until at least 2011 and that I'm well into the 300,000'* on miles
