    Around a year ago I got stupid & sold my 1979 Datsun 210 wagon (AKA The Turd and have regretted it every bloody day since!):banghead:
    I've been searching ever since,A year ago I found a 1983 pontiac Bonneville wagon sitting behind a house in a boondock town where I worked left my # with 'Stan' , Well I changed jobs & my phone was murdered and lost contacts well almost a year later I was working in the same small town and the wagon was gone :( I turned the corner & Taa daa there it sat in the driveway, I just had to stop and chit chat with Stan,
    I asked if he figured out what he needed for it?
    Stan looked at me and said " The battery is dead & it gonna need some work"
    I told him 'I'm not afraid of working on old cars' ;)
    Stan " Well I wouldn't feel right taking any money for it since it doesn't run- So if ya want it, I'll just give it to ya!
    :dancingpa:
    I went home & grabbed my wife & we drove back to Stan's to collect my car!:thumbs2:
    She is a 1983 Pontiac Bonneville wagon W/a 3.8 V6 with 122.ooo miles one family owned, Zero rust!! well the exhaust is rusted out (easy fix) I need to find new 'wood' for it.... 13606758_637966899700876_3440480793199611837_n.jpg 13606442_637966873034212_6334916021601608791_n.jpg 13600316_637966769700889_1183314940741209821_n.jpg 13600184_637966703034229_2374303733862284369_n (1).jpg 13557741_637966743034225_159792864852435563_n.jpg 13533018_637966716367561_2211513165867114289_n.jpg 13533077_637966889700877_8469127942305867386_n.jpg 13557741_637966743034225_159792864852435563_n.jpg

    she runs real good, it has a pretty good size hole in the Z pipe (easy fix I have an extra) My wife drove it home (20 miles) And now she wants it :90: I gave her my other Bonneville (1981) Bonne (8).jpg

    If she wants the grocery getter, let her have the grocery getter. I used to have a '79 Malibu and an '82 Cutlass Cruiser, and I loved 'em both! Darned good design and easy on gas before the 200R4.

    Nice find. I suspect she'll be going down the road under her own power in short order......

    fixing the exhaust and driving it :cool:
    I was thinking of put some cheap mag wheels on it, like some kid got it from his parents in the late 80's or early 90's & finding and replacing the "woody" trim (when I find replacement vinyl)
