Default Poor Bonnie :~(

Found this picture in the online photo gallery of my local newspaper... it appears that the bus came out a little better than the 87-91 Bonnie was struck.



RIP!

That was in my news as well. They said the bus driver was in serious or critical condition but was getting released soon? They wouldn't release the condition of the Bonny driver. Maybe because they were looking for next of kin first?

And wow I hope those people were ok...

On and/or off topic: My neighbout'* '87 has 14" crosslace wheels. I've NEVER seen them on any other Bonneville. They're not shiny like the ones in the above pic.



took that a few weeks ago. I'll be sure to take a pic of it -without- snow...

Oh yeah, I didn't think about a fellow central Illinoisian seeing that in the press as well! I'm not sure about the status of the people involved... I just ran across the photo and not the news story.

probably just used in 87...maybe 88. My 89 LE had the 15" versions and it was the lowest base model.
