Default New front grill

Hello all of my Bonneville enhusiast friends. I drive a 1993 Bonneville SSE (and I might mention that it is the rare supercharged edition). I nearly wet myself when I walked out to my car the other morning to find my Pontiac emblem lying motionless on the pavement. I retrived it and my bottle of Super Glue(tm) in an effort to put the emblem back in its home. I had a brilliant idea at this time....put the emblem on upside down!! I did this and it looks soooooooo cool and unique. And if you are a Lavar Burton fanatic like I am, well the inverted Pontiac emblem looks like a Star Trek badge. Now when I get my car running I will feel like I am piloting the Starship Enterprise (and I will rock out to Starship as well). Toodles!!

Now before you get TOO excited, there are actually quite a few SSE SC cars out there. We've got more than a handfull here. The SC SE'* are actually quite a bit rarer. We only have 3 of those in our membership.

How well did you glue it on? Can you get it back off? I'd love to see someone do a lighted one with a cool overlay of some type.

I can tell you that you're the first to go upside down on that

I used Crazy Glue(tm) to attach the "dart" in its inverted position.

Hey willwren, do you have any idea how many SSE */c were produced? And what does my car have (1993 Pontiac Bonneville SSE (supercharged)) that the SE and SSEi do (or do not)? Thanks friend!!

Pontiac didn't save this information for the older years, so I can't tell you how many were made each year. It is PROBABLY lower than 5000, which is the typical yearly production for the SSEi. I do know for sure, that we have quite a few SSE SC here. Alot more than SE SC, but fewer SSE SC than SSEi. By at least half.

An SSE is basically a non-supercharged SSEi. There are a FEW other options that seem to be more common (or 'factory' option) on the SSEi. The security system, locking gas door, moonroof, performance shift, etc......all these options are more common on the SSEi, but can be found on most SSE'*.

Basically, your car is an SSEi with the "i" scratched off if you have all the other options I mentioned, and I know I forgot a few!
