I've seen them on just about every make of car here (yes, including trucks and imports). I'm sick of them. Just my opinion though..

There'* nothing really rewarding with that.

And I think they look great on the Bonneville.
Only I would prefer the SQUARE portholes

But I wouldn't get those ones.
If anyone knows how to get the real ones, and how to do it, I would love to know.

the original portholes were on an old buick and had lights behind them that would fire in time with one of the individual spark plugs. this was left off the production modles but the bare portholes remained. the top of the line modle had four per side, everything else had three.

the new buicks have "functional" portholes that are square. shaped kind of like this:

and the masseratti not only has buick portholes, but looks like a buick.
