Default Prediction

Been collecting stuff now for quite some time for my 92 SSEi. One of the reasons why is because this was the first year since the early 70'* that Pontiac producted a car with enough "performance" to get people to buy Pontiac again. According to the last edition of the Pontiac Owners Club mag. "The Smoke Signals" the author thinks the SSEi will become a collectors item.

Of all the Bonneville'* between the years 88-99, which model and year do you think will become collectible and Why?

1994 SSEi because they brought the power up
1995 SSEi may too because its the last year of the Series 1 */C.

The "Cladded" years (1992-1995). The plastic cladding is what made the SSEi look fast. In 1996, they had more HP, but didn't have as much cladding. Oddly enough, whenever I read reviews about Bonnevilles, they refer to the cladding as something negative But just like the Endura bumper on the "68-"69 GTO, it is what will be remembered about this era of Bonneville.

I think the 92-99 style will be sought after more, the way the car looks gives it an incredibly aggresive stance that most companies don't bother with or can't pull off. I can only think of one car with fog lights mounted high and inside, the Bonneville.
