excellent car, does anyone know the first year the Bonneville came out, and the different body styles/generations of Bonnes there has been? It would be interesting to tell my friends talking about there 5th generation Accords that I have a (blank) generation Bonne.....it would likely be a big number

All you have to do is check out the classic forum The Bonneville grew out of the 1956 Star Chief, and was called the Bonneville for the first time in 1957. There were alot of convertibles in the early days.

If you count 92-99 as ONE generation.....naw....have to really call that two.....calling that two.....

6 Generations?
