i once rear ended a newer bonneville with my 96...sorry my story isn't as extreme as all of yours, but it put a dent in my bumper and knocked out my headlight, and put a scratch on hers...a scratch....i could get a pic of mine, but i doubt anyone will be excited by it after seeing all the pics above of totaled cars...

I'd like to add that my 04 Chrysler has a 5-Star front crash test rating, but I still feel safer in the Bonneville, especially if I rolled like I did DrugRunner #1.

i'll try to get it this week..i don't have a pic of the other bonneville, cuz she took it to the body shop and got it all fixed, with the cost to my wallet of $450 (cuz it was totally my fault)...

LeSabres are safer than Bonnevilles, 'cause LeSabre drivers don't think they're driving hotrods. :P
