Default Lil' Bonnie Q for those who think they know bonnies

I was in the chicago area recently, and when we were going through the line at the tollbooth, I saw a current generation bonnie without badges and the SLE/SSEi trim. Here is where it gets interesting. Instead of the usual two-outlet exhaust with tips, the car had the SE style exhaust. The front of the bumper on the car also had the red pontiac symbol removed. The question is, how does this happen? Aftermarket or stock? I was confused as hell when I saw it.

I've never shaved off the badges for the name of my car, just other badges such as the "fuel injection" badge my lesabre had, that badge was U-gly.

i pulled the dealer badge off. If I ever take the pontiac badge off the back, it'* because something better is replacing it most likely. I do like hte clean look of my car, between the badglessness and the hiding wipers.

I personally like a few badges here and there, the 3 SSEi badges on my car..
The park avenue was overkilled with factory badges, The two front quarters said Fuel injection
the rear quarters said Park Avenue
The the trunk said Buick, and 4 Speed Automatic!

not a fan of badge'n huh? ahh well, when I get done with mines U might/might not think differently, I'll start replace'n badges an add'n them as well too, 92'* didn't come with the SSE badges on the doors so I'll start their an work my way to the back; Oh, an I can't forget tha inside as well.....

I'd defenately say it'* a "Custom" job, by it not having two out lets maybe it'* an SE with an SLE/SSEi front bumper? or an SLE/SSEi with an SE rear bumper? who knows the things people will do....... It'* a custom job aiight tho,

Maybe he had to fix something and the local junkyard had only so much to work with along with limited funds, and the badges were half gone, so he took them off, but couldn't afford/find any more, or...

Lotsa explanations... :P

I've often said to myself, if something ever happens to the front of my SE, I would opt to pay a little bit more to have the SSEi, or SLE front end put on my car, however, I would also use the down time to have dual exhaust added to it as well...
