Smile The story of my Dad'* 2000 Pontiac Bonneville (And a video)

Alright so here'* the story about the bonneville.

A neighbor couldn't sell it so my dad got it for a steal of 2500. it had 145-150k on it when we first got it. We got it back in 2008. The car has been good to us ever since .

We did some maintenance on it over its life span, but just mostly sensors. still has a strong non-slipping original transmission, and, of course, the original 3.8L V6 with 173k miles.

Since we've had it, The back struts have worn out a little. No big deal but we can't afford maintenance like that on it right now since my sister is going to college.

Surprisingly, i have never had any hood bubbling on the car as many report this issue.

To sum it up, i love the bonneville, and i just want to put more and more miles on it cause it makes me feel good about the longevity of the bonneville. I hope to get this car soon and when i do, My dad told me he would fix it up for me so it would be perfect! (struts, bearings, just the little stuff)

Lets get to the Vid!

Those are actually lug nut covers that you have missing, not uncommon for them to get old, rot, and break off. I replaced mine when I first got my car. I ended up getting chrome colored ones to match my rims. I also check and make sure they are all snug every once in a while, but not to tight or they will break being plastic.
