Recommended Posts

I just bought a Bonneville SLE and was surprised to fall in love with the big old thing.

Sounds great. Pictures are always appreciated. Any plans to modify it?



So where in WV are you from? And most important question of all - Mountaineers or Thundering Herd fan?

Not sure about future plans.

I'll get pictures soon. It's in crazy good shape for the age. It was meticulously cared for by first owner (a city sherif) only at the dealership. I have records for every single service. Even oil changes!

I live in Glenville and work in Morgantown. Yes I drive 1,000 miles a week.

My maters degree is from WVU. So I'm gold and blue. I even have a mountaineer beard. :)

Sounds like a helluva commute but I understand it since I've had similar commutes. Sounds like you know your way up and down I-79/119 then. I have a bunch of friends in Charleston so I know how important being a Herd fan or Mountaineer fan is. I can't wait to see pictures of your ride.

Yeah, heck of a cruiser. Highway flyer. I'm putting so much interstate under this Pontiac it's scary. 1000 miles a week for the last 8 months.

Swapped the coolant elbows for metal ones, removed outside onstar. Now I need to tint it.

I wish I could lower it a little.

Welcome, the Bonnie cleaned up good.

When you restored the headlights, did you seal the lenses?

Look for "Headlight Sealant", I've seen it sold at Advanced Auto, probably find it online easier.

Good to know.

Seems like the air conditioner is acting up. Is this common?
