Default Most Impressive Bonnie EVER!

I'm on my way to Wal-Mart today and as I turn right at an intersection I see to my left a 96-98 Bonneville, not sure which exact year. Now get this, it was a Convertible Bonneville!!! Gray with black top, sharpest Bonnie I've ever seen stock.

I have no idea how rare it is, but I have never seen one until today.

Are you sure it was a convertable and not just the fake convertable top like the lesabres and caddilacs get. I don't doubt you but there'* still the chance.

If it is a convert, track them down and get them in here. I thought about suicide doors and a convertable top on mine! :pimp: I know they have done it with a GP in the past. I think it looked nice.

How would our frame hold up to a convertable top? Wouldn't the car fold when it goes over the first bump without the roof support?

I think you saw a fake cloth top Bonnie. There are several around here. I dunno why you would want to do that to a car. It'* like an old person'* version of rice...

A 4-door Trans Am? Now THAT'* something I want a picture of!

As far as I know, the GM F body wasn't offered in 4 doors. That'd make a pretty funny Camaro, wouldn't it :P

Acutally, I think the bonne would look pretty good with a convertable top. It'd be like one of the old fashion cars. Ya know how like big cars back then (cadillac for example) had the convertable tops and it looked good. I don't see why it wouldnt look bad on a bonne. " Luxury With Attitude " Hehe
