You mean like primer? That'* not paint. Your supposed to put an actually color (like Blue) on top of that.


And BigAl. Those pics and that story look and sound pretty nasty. Another Bonne protecting her driver. You gonna fix it, or are they gonna total it?

Actually grey/silver are VERY hard to pick out. They get hit the most in intersections where the driver "didn't see the car" etc...

I have a white SLE packaged 95 bonneville. The previous owner had a deer ram it (yes thats right, the deer ramed the front of the car while it was parked, not the other way around). Otherwise everythings almost as super as a souped up supra. I saw a green ssei bonne the other day, flipped over with the roof half caved in. So I now state a new myth: the curse of the green bonneville

I don't believe in this. I don't care what color a car can be, accidents happen. My 97 was black and before the end of its life (supposevley) it was hit 5 times. My mirror on the passenger side was the first blow, then a car bags into my hood, my driver side mirror was hit, then someone tried to break into it. This was a black car. SHI- HAPPENS!!!!!!!!

I call it the Curse becausethe majority of the white Bonnevilles that have been damaged have not been the fault of their drivers, but inflicted by someone elses carelessness

Feel free to confirm or deny that fact

As you can see, I was kinda touchy, not only because my car is white, but because I don't want to leave the house and get in an accident because of me having a white car. I do have to go somewhere in 45 min and trying to meet up with the rest of the members today and the last thing I need today is be involved in an accident and show up to a meet with a banged up ride
