Wow i'm surprised to see what this thread has come to. I'm not thrilled to see it deviate so much from the custom intake discussion but never the less it'* worth it for the sake of seeing so many people remember the gravity and feel of this first gen of the Bonneville (and by first gen i mean first generation ... of the new generation
not the 1957 one!). Anyways
Yes i love the low end torque on the beast. It never fails to push the passenegers into their seats when i first tap that accelerator. Hahaha it keeps my family awake!
What I wouldn't give for the time and money (and knowledge) to give it a total rebuild, straighten the body, fix that caster issue on the right drive wheel, prime and paint it, and give the engine a complete in and out toughness rebuild, My interrior is actualy in great shape!
Oh and about options, there is an 87 bonnie (red interrior, white exterrior whith manual rolll up windows!
Mine has in dash speakers (2) and 2 more in back. The leather (or whatever they used) for my dash is amazing! It has NO cracks or damage whatsoever. They really had a winner on their hands.. (proably why it was on Car and Driver'* top 10 for '87!) And one more thing, i have a magnet made to hold random nuts and bolts while you work on your car and i noticed it sticks to my dash. Strange that there must be metal deep within the flexible exterrior.
