65 PONTIAC BONNE ON FIRE
PONTIAC BONNE ON FIRE, SOLD IT! Short story about the Bonne.
In Dec. of 1967 or was it Jan. Chicago had a terrible snow storm.
24" in 24 hours. That's a lot of snow. The car was parked outside
and the weight of the snow when it froze broke three of the
four shocks !! The Bonneville lasted about 120,000 miles and
ran like a charm all the way to the end when it needed a total
rebuild. We would have done it had the body been in better shape.
The only thing missing on this car was twin quadrajets. It had
the factory headers and twin exhausts. It could hold 6 sets
of golf clubs in the trunk along with carry on bags. Oh well,
it must have been recycled at least seven times by now.
you look closely you can see my son Barry driving the Jaguar
220 with a very big smile. ;>}
was a fine car. Needed very little when purchased and needed
very little along the way. The only major repairs were a new
top and two new clutch slave cylinders. Pop never liked the
car because it was British. He loved the E for the same reason.
Go figure that one out. TWEEDY BIRD YELLOW XK 150 PRIOR TO MERCEDES
it is after painting in Mercedes Silver. All of the kids learned
to change gears in this car. They loved it as much as I did.
