Default Bonneville'* rarest colors 1992+

I have been wondering this since I bought my Gold Fire Mist 1998 SSE.
I am right to believe this is as rare or rarer than the 1998-1999 Olive B-ville'*?
I just did a search on www.autotrader.com and found 2 1998 SSE'* in Gold Fire Mist and as well as 3 SE'* in the same color (none with the Chrome torquestars though).
I did see 2 Olive SSE/SSEi'*. I do see about 3 different Olive SE'* around my area every so often, and on occasion a Olive SSEi with about 35% tint -this guy has passed me twice on my way home from work since I bought my SSE and he has always given me a thumbs up (too bad I don't have a www.bonnevilleclub.com banner, but although I don't like doing the decals'* on my car-anymore- I might have to put a Gold Fire Mist www.BonnevilleClub.com banner on the back window).
As for seeing Gold Fire Mist Bonneville'* around me I haven't seen any besides mine and the other SSE that was at the dealer in St. Cloud about 1-2 years ago, one G.F.M. SSE/SSEi with Ghetto Golds in Alexandria about 1 year ago, and 2 or maybe 3 G.F.M. SE'* as long as I can remember.

What do you guys think? Is there any way to get production #'* from Pontiac on how many G.F.M. and Olive (don't know the name of the color from the factory) Bonneville'* were made?
Any other super rare colors I'm not thinking of?

I know there are at least 5 blue 1992/1993 1998/1999 SSE/SSEi'* in Alexandria alone, and here in Sauk Centre there are 2 cherry red 1998 SSEi'* (not local owner'*, but both owned by people working in Sauk Centre) and I see 2-3 weekly in Alexandria. I thought about them when I made this post, but since I see half a dozen of each color each week I didn't think they were that rare -there are more of those colors than black or white 1996-1999 SSE/SSEi'*. I do have to admit that it can it rather to me.

Mines the 1992 Blue SSEi, I also have the rare two-tone leather interior.


Exterior.


Interior.

I think it is one of the more rare I have seen. I have only seen two, only one in person is mine.

beck has a very unique setup there in his 92 and I wouldn't doubt its one of the rarest.

As for our cars being the "Gold Fire Mist" color as rare...I'm not sure if thats true, but I can tell you from multiple sources that its one GM'* most expensive colors in the market right now. Very hard to duplicate.

I love the interior in beck'* Bonnie,too bad they didn't consider a 2 tone gray instead of the single color.

I have seen several blue ones(only 1 SSEi) in the auto trader but not rollin on chrome T'stars and mine was the first blue SSEi I had seen.
I have the only blue one in my town and only 1 of 2 rollin' T'stars(the other is a SLE)
