Default 2 questions

1) Did anyone know that the Bonneville had a station wagon available for the year 84 or 85? 2) Has anyone ever heard of a 160* thermostat?

1. The station wagon does sound familiar

2. I forgot where I was, but I did see a 160 thermostat online. Sounds too cold to me though.

Yea I've seen posters for the Bonneville as a wagon... I believe it'* called a "Bonneville Safari".

Here'* links for 60s Bonneville wagons...

Here is a picture of the 79 LeManns wagon and the Bonneville wagon.


My folks used to own two 80s Custom Cruisers, I believe they were the identical (same body) as the Bonneville Safari'*. (the photo of the gold one looks almost identical to one my parents owned).

This 85 Custom Cruiser looks identical to the blue one my folks owned.

I wish they still had one of those cars.... with the 3rd row seat, it would be perfect for hauling people up to the cottages.

86 was the last wagon. It had a Pontiac and a Bonneville badge on the tailgate.

Yep! Thats the exact one I saw thats on the left pic. The same size as the malibu wagon. Pontiac was strange from the get go with all of these cars or should I say GM. THe Parisenne, the Pheonix, the 6000, the Pontiac Chevette, is this the 2000? I forgot the name of it. The LeMans, those were some crazy times but a big family.
