My AutoZone has them. BTW, are you sure that they were amber 3057s and not 3157s. The 3157 is the amber corner lamp. the 3057 is the backup and tail lamp. It should be always clear (at least for the Bonneville). I'll take a look in AZ tonight.

EDIT:
From the Sylvania site I linked:

When you put them in.. and run them a little...please feel the housing to ensure they won't melt it.

when you take a difference picture back against a wall say 20 feet away, so we can actually see the difference in output.
