My 2002 Pontiac Bonneville SLE
I have always liked big cars, especially Pontiac Bonnevilles, after buying my first one (a 1989) a while back. After buying my '96 Grand Prix in 2006, I started noticing
a few "extra sharp" Bonnevilles, compared to all the others. After some research online, I found out that I had fallen in love with the 8th generation Bonneville (2000-2005).
They were big luxury cars, with all the same trim as the smaller sports cars... they looked like overgrown Grand Ams, and I decided early on, that I had to have one.
Over the next three or four years, on and off, I got online, and searched for this timeframe of Bonnevilles for sale.
I'm not a big fan of buying cars from dealerships, but on October 2nd, 2011, at half-time of a Packer game (the Packers on their way to beat Denver, 49-23), I got online,
and found my dream car, at a dealership in Kenosh, Wisconsin (just over a hundred miles away). It was perfect.... the light silver color, the polished aluminum alloy
wheels, and of course, the required sunroof. I drove down there the next day, put a down payment on it, and stopped in at my Credit Union on the way back to start the
loan process. The financing went through, and I picked it up about a week later.
Specs and Options are listed below the photos.
