Default Post office issued BONNEVILLE?????

I was on my normal driving route, a half hour late. when i seen a 92-96 Bonneville SSEi driving up to mailboxes. i pulled over to ask him a question about it and he looked liek i had 2 heads. all the controls were on the ride hand side of the car. no dual pedals no dual steering wheels. pimped with leather and A/C. I don't ever remember there being a pontiac anything for postal delivery. only right hand jeeps. am i mistaken becaue this is the nly of it'* kind i have seen. and the postal workers even said this is the only he has seen and he has been stationed 5 times.

You can order cars with RHD. This was either built for export or it was built specifically for someone who wanted a delivery vehicle (postal, paper, etc.) I have never heard of a RHD Bonneville....but there are other domestic makes that I have seen using RHD. Did you convince him to join the club?

There'* a guy around my town who is a rural postal delivery mailman,......he drives about a '96-'97 Bonneville....has had it for several years.The name he likes to go by is Happy Howard,...kind of a red-neck(looks like a big burley Canadian lumberjack...full beard,wears a wool watch-cap most of the time),live-off-the-land type guy,...he built his house under/inside of a hillside(just the doorway/front windows sticking out,...every year he has a pig-roast/shindig on his country property and invites Anybody who wants to come to it,....also does a whole lot of drinking at one particular road-side pub,in his 'off-duty'[..probably in his 'on-duty' as well ],....this guy'* can only be described as 'the real deal'.

Cool! Taxpayers money at work--got to keep our postal workers from going postal. "that'* it, I'm sick and tire of driving these Focus', I'm going postal on someone when I get back to the depot!"
