Year and Trim: 95 Bonneville SSE
My current Pontiac is a 95 Bonneville SSE that I inherited as a gift from a friend, too many DUIs and he didn't want to be tempted to drive it so his loss was my gain. Since then I've had to replace nearly every part in the car that had any type of rubber in it or attached to it that served any type of structural or functional purpose. Despite the chassis having over a quarter million miles about 80% of the parts that were replaced failed due to dryrot with the suspension being the huge exception.
This includes everything in the fenders wells, front engine accessories, vacuum, brake system, battery, and complete suspension. New engine and trans mounts are the current project with just the one rear driver mount left to install. After completion I'm taking to a local shop that's going to install the new subframe bushings, transmission solenoids and then finally get my new tires on the front with a full alignment.
My other vehicles are a 04 Jaguar Xj8 and a06 Dodge Magnum. They jag is the next project car, I have to install a new $600 set of timing chains and tensioners.
My previous Pontiacs go back to my first car which was a 86 Bonneville wagon and have since included 78 Trans Am, 80 Formula, 99 WS6 Formula, 99 Firebird convertible, 00 Firebird Coupe, a GTP Grand Prix and 03 Bonneville

Favorite engines are the 3800 and the LS1

Welcome to the forums sir!

Looks like you have a nice cruiser to run around in after all that work. :)
