Default Replacement for the Bonnie


I had her for about 2 1/2 years. But the problems I had been having with stalling just got worse, traction and ABS stoppped working, and she frequently stranded me at work or at school.

So she'* been replaced. Not a Bonneville, but still a 3800.





2003 Chevrolet Impala LS
Fully loaded. Mileage: 17,990.
The only option it doesn't have is the "sport" appearance package.
I did look for similarly equipped Bonnevilles, but couldn't find a single one that could hold a flame to this Impala. When all is said and done I'm very happy with the Impala though. Insurance is roughly the same, gas mileage is a bit better, and this car has more fun junk and buttons then the Bonneville had.

Absolutely correct. Chevrolet didn't offer the */c Impala until 2004. The "SS" appearance package is the exact same as the "Sport" appearance package available (but rare to see) on the LS in 2003. An Impala SS (in black) would have been a sweet car, but not very practical for me.

I have no idea what has become of my Bonnie. The dealer took it but informed me it would be cleaned up and sent to auction almost immediately. Unfortunately I wasn't able to salvage any of the parts before I took delivery of the Impala. I had a full set of SSE Tails and the tilting head rests. And looking back at pictures of it, yeah I do miss it.
