Default Bonneville Gold Edition

I saw this car today. It was a white 94 or 95 SE or SLE and it said "Gold Edition" on it. It had ghetto golds, gold pinstriping, and this wierd piping that ran along the grooves in the trim (It was white from discoloration, but I'm assuming it'* supposed to be gold). Can I get some info on this car?

Could be another one of those dealer-installed things - my guess.

Looked pretty legit to me. It had vinyls on the doors and the deck lid. It also had the "Bonneville" badges on the door like the 92s had, but no SE badge.

Not factory.

If I had a dime for every time......

There was no such thing from the factory. You can buy those badges at Pep Boys.

I have a "gold edition package" that I got off ebay for like 10 bucks. Mine is a 96-99, designed for SE/SLEs. I believe oldblue eyes said he has seen several 92-95s before.

Mine is gold trim to replace the chrome, gold pinstriping (never installed), gold bonneville badges for the c-pillar (put on footwell of doorjam), and gold letterings to fill in the BONNEVILLE SE and BONNEVILLE on front doors and rear bumpers (installed but removed shortly after). So yes, dealer package so they can charge a few hundred more.

Oh, OK. I was just wondering, b/c it looked kinda cool. This is one time I wish I had a different color car, that gold stuff looked kinda cool.

What color was Drug Runner? I think it would look good on a green/black/or white car.
