2002 Pontiac Bonneville SSEI with over 237k miles gets seafoam treatment
Whether or not seafoam makes a big difference is debatable but it does make one hell of a smoke screen when you let your car suck it in through the brake Boost vacuum line or other vaccum line. No we're not trying to kill this poor car, seafoam doesn't hurt anything

My '79 Caprice (Bought New, Been in the Family Ever Since)
One of GM's last all-new line of full-size cars, the '79 Caprice and Impala 2-doors, with their infamous "bent" window glass, were in the last year of a body style that was introduced for the 1977 model year. These "downsized" full-size cars were almost a foot shorter and 700 pounds lighter than the '76's they replaced. But, trunk space and interior room stayed the same. In one year, the 350 V8 went from being the smallest engine you could get in a big Chevy to being the largest. As big Chevys had been for years, they were traditional body-on-frame construction, but they were the first cars to be partially designed and engineered using CAD-CAM (Computer aided design-computer aided manufacturing). GM's other B-body cars, the Pontiac Catalina and Bonneville, Olds 88, and Buick LeSabre, and larger C-bodies, the Buick Electra, Olds 98 and Cadillac DeVille/Fleetwood, also got the downsizing treatment in '77. Almost a million-and-a-half full-size Chevy sedans, coupes and wagons were sold in those three years, unfortunately not enough to take back the number-one sales spot from the mid-size Olds Cutlass. The universal complaint back then was that GM had made the Chevy full-size cars TOO small. (In '77, they were only slightly longer than a "mid-size" Chevy Malibu. How times change;-) For the 1980 model year, they were mildly restyled, and that basic body lasted 11 years, until the "pregnant whale" '91-'96 models, which, along with the Buick Roadmaster, Olds Custom Cruiser and Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham (all based on the same '77-vintage chassis), were the last body-on-frame big cars GM would ever build. This one was bought new by my mom in September of 1979 for (take your heart medicine now) $7,500. Thanks to an oil shortage and subsequent doubling in the price per gallon of gas that summer, sales of full-size cars had fallen off a cliff, so she had her pick of in-stock colors and options. If you've tried to find a clean '77-79 Caprice or Impala 2-door, you know it's next to impossible. So imagine visiting City Chevrolet, a Chicago dealer that was located in a series of old multi-story warehouses, and riding the freight elevator with the salesman to one of the enclosed upper-floor new-car storage areas. There, parked nose-to-tail and mirror-to-mirror, were at least 40 Caprice and Impala 2-doors, including the rare Landau models. Too bad City routinely undercoated all its cars. (A side note: City Chevrolet supplied the City of Chicago with its Impala and Caprice cop cars until the day GM ended production.) This one was bought at the now-vanished Circle Chevrolet at 82nd and Racine. It has very few options: the 305 V8, A/C, a rear window defogger and AM/FM stereo with 8-track player and rear speakers. Mom had it Ziebarted a month after she bought it, which partially accounts for the shape it's in now. It replaced a green '68 Impala 4-door hardtop with 78,000 miles, a 307 V8, Powerglide, drum brakes all around and no A/C, bought new by my dad. In her care, this one's led a pretty sedate existence. Except for a road trip to Washington D.C. in 1980 and a period of about six months where I commuted in it to Argonne National Laboratory, no long drives. Pretty much to the grocery store, to her friends' homes, and to church. The locking wire wheel covers became necessary in 1983 after the original wheel covers kept getting stolen. Also that year, a Metra road crew dropped a load of track ballast on it as she sat under a viaduct at a stoplight. Allstate (bless them) paid for all the repairs to the body and the pitted glass and litigated with Metra for the next seven years. When she passed on a few years ago, I inherited it. I'm basically keeping it the way it is. No Corvette motor. No 22's. No thumping stereo. It needs a little body work (after 28 Chicago winters, what did you expect?), and as soon as a little more money comes in, I've got to take care of the windshield wiper motor and find a set of the original wheel covers. It just got a new brake master cylinder and fuel pump (ouch!), and winter's coming, so converting the A/C from R12 to R134 will have to wait. But other than that, it runs like a top, and the interior's in almost perfect shape. And on sunny days, it's great to pull off the cover, back it out of the garage, and drive one of the last of GM's big cars. After zipping around in my Fiero, it's like driving a Cadillac (I used to drive my uncle's '79 Coupe de Ville, and the ride wasn't much smoother than this one). As with the Fiero, master GM mechanic Dave Armstrong keeps it running right. If you're in the Chicago area, get in touch with him at (773)282-1444. He'll keep your car on the road or get it back on the road if it isn't.
