Post some pics of your ride here then. That is the car that got me into Bonne'* and would love to check out some great pics. My dream is to get a perfect 89 or 90 SSE and add it to the fleet. It is near impossible to find a nice one.

Doesnt help with the pic request, but back in the spring, I did find an 89 at a used car lot, 81k original miles, med garnet red, tint, gray leather interior, always garaged (could tell by the perfect paint), all docs, well cared for. Only thing I could have REALLY picked at if I wanted to was the tires, they were about half gone. Asking price was 3900 though, it didnt last long. Someone had the cash and was willing to part with it. So they are out there but its like finding that needle in a haystack.

I would love to find a dark blue one with camel interior and gold spokes.

You might try searching the "your ride" section for the SSE'*, and its not blue, but I remember that was a pretty clean SSE owned by one of the Staff members.

That would be a find. There are two cars I would love to have, a 90 SSE blue and camel and an 89 GTA flame red with a 305 5 speed instead of the 350 auto. Both cars are near impossible to find (I want survivors)

Mine is nice, with just some surface rust under the airbox and washer bottle. I have two small parking lot dents on my driver'* side fender that you have to be looking for to see. Clear is shot. And the interior is nice as hell, but not mint. Now the original motor... that was hammered to ****...
