Default We are family

I did some work this weekend (well my father-in-law did) to my car, and figured I'd take some pics of the driveway/front of the house to show what kind of family I married into.

This is the money shot. These would be my 95 SE, my sister-in-law'* 2004 Cavalier, my father-in-law'* 2005 Bonneville SE, and my bro-in-law'* 96 Grand Prix.

My father- in- law just bought this last month. I think it had about 26,000 miles on it. He got it for about $13,000...they wanted $19,000. He traded in his 98 Olds 98 that had 214,000 miles on it. Before that he had a 96 Bonneville SE, and has owned more Pontiacs that I can even remember. I know he has owned several Bonnevilles, including a 57 and 58, and Grandvilles, Pariesiennes, and Grand Prix'*.

My bro-in-law is waiting to get a paint job, but got this hood put on for now because his old one had some dents in it. He got those wheels for $50 and there are in great shape. He'* also looking to pick up a spoiler.

When my wife and I first started dating there were even more Pontiacs in the family.
My wife drove a 94 Grand Prix
My father-in-law had the 96 Bonnie
My brother-in-law had his 96 GP
My sis-in-law who now has the Cavy had a 90 Bonnie which was sold to the youngest sis
My other sis-in-law and a 96 Grand Am GT
And, as I said earlier there have been many more Pontiacs in the family. And, if not a Pontiac, definitely a GM. In fact, if it ain't a GM, it doesn't park in the driveway.
****
Both my father-in-law went with me to look at my Bonnie, and both were ready to buy it if I didn't.

No Olds 98 after 1995. Must be an Olds Regency. They are kinda a cross between the 88/ 98.

Yeah, it is very cool. We go there every Sunday after church. We have lunch, watch the race or football depending on the season, or a movie of nothing else, work on asrs, take naps...Sunday stuff. Plus, as a bonus...there is a Dairy Queen down the road.

Come to think of it I think it was a Regency, but they always called it a 98. I always thought it was called a Regency 98.

I like the pinstripe on the '05. I haven't seen any like that before. At least not around here...
