“ I bought this 1979 Bonneville from one of our neighbors' elderly mother back in 2007. The car has 67,000 original miles.
It has a Buick 350. I've done some engine and interior work and added side pipes. Which make this one sweet sounding car.”

“I love timeless designs. The '79 Bonneville keeps its roots and stays timeless. I love the fact that even at this stage of appearance people still say it's a nice clean car.
I have a lot of work to do, but I will never lose any money on this car when I'm through!”
My car is very dependable and I love the way it fits in my life! My family loves this car also!!

“I've owned my 1979 Bonneville Brougham since April 2006, I bought this car stock from ebay. The car came from Illinois with 45k original miles. I love my car and plan to keep it for many years to come. The car has many modifications to it yet still keeps its classy styling.“

“This is my 79 Bonneville 301cid.
My grandfather bought it new in 79 for $9000 !
(I have the original paper work!)
My 75 Catalina Wagon donated a 400 cid 4bbl engine,
the rest went to my 76 Catalina.
Paint is in the works, color will stay the same.”

A 1979 Catalina 2-door was my first car, and the first new car that my parents bought late in '79. I grew up with it, and when I got my license,
my mother threw me the keys to the Catalina; it was mine.
My worse mistake I can think of, I sold the car. More than 10 years have passed, and I finally found my 2-door Catalina once again. It's not exactly the same as what I had, and the plans for the car are still up in the air, but one thing's for sure, I'm not making the same mistake twice.
This Catalina's here to stay.
If anyone has a line on those hard to find parts for this car
feel free to drop me an email.

“September 1988 through 1989, I was a contract programmer at IBM, Kingston New York. With winter imminent, in October 1988, I bought a pristine 1979 Pontiac Catalina Safari Wagon in Kingston, New York.
My wagon was Regency brown metallic and had a 4.9 litre (301 cu.in) V8. It had New York plates, KYB-676 which I later changed to ‘BAJIRAO’.
My second son, Ajinkya was born at the Kingston Hospital in February 1989 and rode home as a new born baby in that Catalina Safari Wagon.”

Jason says the 301 V8 in his Catalina runs great. He bought the car for a mere $500 in 1994, and now has over 130,000 miles on the odometer.
