Odd seeing that huge rear license pocket, though.
Hey now!!! :P jk

Yeah looks different, I kinda like the grilles in the fog light holes.
No offense, just my personal taste. I think the OEM yellows compliment the green on my cars.

CC: If you look at some of the shots that aren't directly from the rear, you can see the amber.

Bill: I know, I was just bugging you. It'* all personal taste.

Garb: I asked him if those rims were stock or aftermarket so I'll keep you posted.

ga93sle: The picture of the 1970'* Bonneville you posted looks very much like the 1978 Bonneville I had. I had those exact same hubcaps (still have one in the garage, I always picked up extras whenever I could because they fell off all the time). The front end on that one looks like maybe a 1977. The back end looks different, I didn't have the half-circle covers over the back wheels, and the windows on the rear doors were different. The picture you posted may be a higher trim level than what I had (Brougham maybe) and was also very similar to the Parisienne.

My old 1978 Bonnie is still alive and well somewhere around here in California. It sold at auction recently.

It looks like the headlights have a single bulb like a '97-'03 Grand Prix (IIRC 9007) and not 2 bulbs like us. Making our 'low beams' parking lights. The cornermarkers look like they are now corner lights like on a buick.[/img]

The caption said it is an 82.

I'd tend to agree with you, IILo.
