    Brian - I had a 79 LeSabre too - the Turbo Coupe with 3.8 L - navy blue with all the chrome except bumpers painted black.

    Take care

    AFG - Absolutely Gorgeous! It's like I'm looking at my own car! Thanks for the pix - I just might save them and pass them off as my car (until I get the Zaino crew here and the digital camera out).

    I got the car back from being tinted, turned out pretty nice. Ended up going with 20% on the rear and 35% on the front.

    Quite stylish!

    Is that the Champlain lookout in Gatineau Park? If so, how did the Bonnie handle those "mountain" roads? If not, where is it? It looks like a nice spot....

    My SSEi is going in to have the windows tinted on thursday. I am going to have 35% all around per their suggestions. Hope it looks OK.

    I am also having a remote starter installed for my wife.

    My first mods. :)
  • sixxersixxer Posts: 36
    Good eye!

    It is the Champlain lookout. The car handled the roads great. I went up early in the morning, no traffic. Was a fun ride. ;)
  • tpkentpken Posts: 1,108
    Sounds like a great drive - Lake Champlain vistas, mountainous terrain, my right foot is starting to tap here - going to have to get out the atlas and check this out!

    Stan - your SE looks fabulous! do you find any difficulty in backing up at night with the window tint? I know our Suburban is very difficult at night for that reason.

    Ken
  • theicemantheiceman Posts: 736
    The name "Champlain" is a tad over-used in Ontario, Quebec and New England (well, that guy was all over the place, wasn't he). The Champlain lookout in Gatineau park (just north of the city of Hull, Quebec) overlooks the Ottawa River Valley. As coincidence would have it, this valley is one of the original homelands of the Ottawa tribe - of which Pontiac would later be their chief.

    Gee Stan, did you think of all that before you picked this spot for the pix?
  • sixxersixxer Posts: 36
    I find the 20% tint isn't too bad for backing up at night. I went with 20% with the Bonnie because my last car I had gone with 15% on the rear. That was definately too dark. The 20% so far isn't too bad. Although, I've only had the tint about a week now, so I haven't done much night driving with it yet.

    Uhhhh, yeah! Yeah, that's exactly what I was thinking about when taking the pic! hehehe..

    New stablemate 2001 Oldsmobile Alero GL2 Sedan (Midnight Blue, 3400 V6, sunroof) alongside the Sleek Blue Beauty. Didn't have a chance to wax them up or dress the tires for this photo op, but at least they were clean! (Tahoe was dirty, will participate in family photo another day.) Note the family resemblance.

    Michael - good looking family! Plenty of reason to be proud of them all! Is the Tahoe also dark blue?

    Ken
  • mlm4mlm4 Posts: 401
    Ken - Yep, the Tahoe is two-tone Indigo Blue/Pewter. I must say that I didn't intend for all these vehicles to be blue, it just ends up being the favorite color given the selection. When I ordered the Bonnie, it was hands-down my first choice (Light Bronzemist was my second). When I ordered the Tahoe, Chevy offered Pewter and Dark Carmine Red, both of which I thought looked great on the Suburban but didn't quite do it for me on the short-wheelbase Tahoe. As for the Alero, the girlfriend's first choice was Black; mine was Light Bronzemist. She didn't like my choice and I am strongly opposed to black cars (they only look good when new and clean and scratch/swirl-free). This blue one was on the dealer's lot and it was an easy compromise. (Actually, it was only part of the compromise -- she wanted a coupe and I preferred the sedan, so it kind of seems like I got my way, eh?)

    I can't see your pictures. Please post them again, I am looking forward to seeing your new ride. Could you take a shot of the tailpipes and cupholders for all of us cupholder handicap 2000 and 2001 owners :)...

    Enjoy the ride
