Complete opposite here in Winnipeg. There are huge amounts of Bonne'* here, I see at least a couple every day. It seems like a complete equal spread from 87-current. Lots of beat up 87-91 (though few SSE'*, makes me a little more special). Quite a few 92+ SSEi'*, but mostly SE'*. What is more rediculous is that almost none of these people are on BC for some reason. It makes me think the Bonneville'* around here are not appreciated.

On a Friday night at a large movie theatre there were 12 Bonne'* on one floor of a small parkade...THEY ARE EVERYWHERE!!

Actually, my Bonneville attracts a lot of attention for the busted winshield and large scrape on the right side, too. lol

I just replaced the windshield and am going to start body work to repair the scrape soon, though.

I think just the fact I don't see many SSEI'* on the road makes the car nice. I get a lot of compliments and what they said above, it doesn't look like all the other sedans out on the road....like Accords, Camry'*, etc. These cars are starting to all look the same. I love driving something different. I get more looks now in the Bonnie then I did in my lowered, tinted, loud, fast GTP......and it'll still take just about any sedan out there

Alot of people who do not know anything about cars think mine is worth like $20,000. It suprises them when i tell them how much you can pic one up for. I've also had alot of older couples compliment my car and ask me what kind it was, and 1 asked if i wanted to sell it!

then you have some that says its nice because it has leather interior, a compass (they always ask whats that? especially the ladies!) the seat switches in the middle, the air pump in the trunk, the HUD which surprises alot of ppl." EWWWWWW! I can see how fast Im going on the window!!!" and i say, "Oh really?" lol! Everybody like my cup holders in the 96 better than the 93'* i had. and of coarse everyone like how my car interior looks at night because i have the graphite interior and when i put the tire wet on the seats it shines so much i get so many compliments on how ppl wish they had my seats and dash. (I have to keep my eyes open on that)
