Default How many 87-91 Bonnies remain on the road?

Hi all,

Each year a certain amount of cars are retiring from the road for differents reasons.
Since most of our cars will reach the 20 year old milestone soon, I am expecting that
the 87-91 Bonnies retiring rate will be increasing significantly.
I barely no see 87-91 on th road in my area (Montreal Quebec) and I found out that only few are resting in peace temporarely in my local junkyards awaiting soon to be crushed for good.
I am wondering if someone could tell me how many Bonnies 87-91 were produced by GM and how many are still on the road?

I want to say that the production stats are posted in Techinfo, Don't hold me to that, I may have read it somewhere else.

Here in the southern US, I still see a few on the roads here and there, I have 2 that are driven daily. Havent seen one in a junkyard in awhile.

My first car was only 10 years old when I got it, and I barely trusted it to get me around, mine is 16 years old and I drive it 4k miles a month! Must say something about the way these cars are built

We just lost another one last week.

My neighbour'* '87 LE transmission bit the dust, and it got hauled off for scrap. The chassis itself had low, LOW mileage on it... 125,000km (77,600 miles)

It didn't run as well as it should've however, and the body, while without any rust/rot holes, had seen better days.

And I just sold mine.

I got the only one in my town and it is rare to se an SSE on the road 87-91 around here. Ironically there is a junk one accross the street.

I am proud to say that I love mine and will never give her up! I will drive her and replace anything she needs until she is totalled! I stole her from a guy I delivered a pizza to for $300. I've probably got $2100 more in parts and repairs in her but she gives me a great feeling when I get in and turn that key and she fires off immediately. I was going to wait until after I got her painted to show her, but since you asked this specific question I'll get some uploaded tonight!
