Default 88-91 body Kits..

Yesterday I seen this Bonneville. on the Street It didn't have the body kit like my SSE.. I said too myself Wow.... A Bonneville with a kit.. Thats new too me. But it look like it had the SSE Tail lights.. I need them on my SSE. My are cracked up... Have any one seen a Bonneville with a Body kit ?

P.* When people see my Car they don't think it'* a 88.... This car have Style of it own.
No car like it on the Road....
This was the Hots car from 88-91...
I still thin the White is the best color and Grey....
The color Grey is from 88-89 models.
After that they lighten up the Color for some reason...

I've never seen a '87-'91 Bonneville with a body kit, and personally, I hope I never do. In my opinion, body kits do two things: They make a car heavier (slower), and uglier.

I suppose it it was something subtle, like the stock SSE body, that would be okay. Those look agressive without looking ricey.

Yeah, the factory SSE kit is about as agressive as I'd like it... any more and it gets too boy-racerish.

Agreed. The best part about the SSE is the rear end. It is a thing of beauty. Thankfully, I've never seen a riced out 87-91 'ville, but there is probably one out there.

By the way TDRAL, if you don't mind me asking...where are you from?

There is. My brother saw this yellow one rolling around near his school.

The same one from CarDomain that somebody posted a while ago.

Okay, to each his own, but it'* not cool to see a body kit that'* BLATANTLY MALFORMED when you look at the car straight-on from the front. Left side doesn't match right side.

An intake will do a little for your car, MPG and HP wise, but that'* another topic.

IIRC, there was a kit 87-91. It was pretty rare to see around, haven't seen the pics in a while. Maybe it was custom.
