Tofu my main man, the reason it doesn't bend is because it'* plastic, not metal, but seriously Tofu, it'* ok, they used plastic to save weight

Guys 96-99 used metal, so it'* easy to be confused If all you saw was them, that'* what you'd think.

I bet Jachin did it faster than anyone. I still ENDLESSLY search for corners at the wrecker. Most of the cars I see there have damage to the front end, as opposed to the rear. Is this an indication of the Bonnevilles under-braking tendency from 92-99? Jachin, what was the cause of the accident?

well a member here was actually found me one a few days after the wreck. I was the cause of the accident i was going to make a left turn on a 4 way parkway that was all congested and busy as hell. when i went to go creep across the turn lane i was looking right to see if it was clear and when i went to look left to begin to make the turn all i see is this big white thing and then all i hear is crunch and it was all over. That accident was the beggining of all of my bad luck ive had with my car lately.
