Default Random Bonneville Sightings...

I saw a few notable Bonnevilles lately. When I went to my aunts to get my '93 Bonneville back in Fort Atkinson WI she bought a '96 SSEi that she got for $3500. Guess thats my next car when mine goes down. All the cars I bought I got them from my aunt.

In a local ACE hardware commercial there was a 96-99 in the background.

And the big one. Sunday night I was waiting in the parking lot of a grocery store and there was this BEAUTIFUL 82-86 Bonneville sitting a few spots away. it was PERFECT. NO rust NO damage! I was almost about to crap myself that thing was perfect. I even got a better look cause I stopped for gas and that same bonneville was there a couple pumps away.

So yah mon

I walked outside to go to work yesterday and saw THREE!

We make cheese in Oregon, too.




I can't imagine anywhere that you'd not see another one at least ONCE a day, unless you live out in the sticks and only drive to the gas station by the county road. They can't be THAT hard to find, can they?

On the road to WCBF in 06... I think 3 in total were sighted. That'* a long distance to see that few. Toddster came this way to buy one because he said in his part of WI there are none for sale and few on the road.

I see at least 2-3 on each drive to work.

Here in Lancaster, it'* special when you see a Bonneville. But it'* super-special when you see a SSEi and super-super-special when a SSEi is for sale.

Otherwise, they're not common here.

They are quite common here. Mostly SE/SLEs more than anything. SSEi'* aren't too common at all, not sure why. More SSEs than SSEis though. I freaked the other day and carded a white 92-93 SSEi with the Aeroblades.

GXPs, that'* another story, far and few inbetween, BUT I have seen the GXP styled SLEs alot.
