I am lucky to see one per week (other than my own). Often, I'll go several weeks without a sighting. The entire drive up to WCBF, I didn't see ANY. And driving back, I only saw one (other than Stan'*/Kim'* new SSEi) in southern Utah, and it was an SE.

It varies around my area. Some days I'll see 2 or 3, and others none. Most of them are 96-99 SEs driven by all ya-alls retired grandparents. Carding them does zero good.

It'* always a rare pleasure when I see a nice 2000+ SSEi or GXP.

They're extremely common around the Flint area. I think it'* because Flint is a die-hard GM town AND because the 3800 is still manufactured in Flint.

That'* all of the 3800s, btw.

If I had to count every Bonneville I saw in a day up here in New Hampshire I'd probally lose count. All different years and trim levels .

Since I bought mine a few months ago, I can count on one hand the number of Bonnevilles I've seen.
Not for lack of looking either, I'm on the road 10 hours a day driving a truck up and down this Island paradise.

odd place. Was watching 48 hour|Mystery tonight on CBS and on one scene they were letting a gryish tan car drive under the police tape and it was a 00+ Bonneville SLE or SSEI

Correction it'* an SE they've shown the scene a few times and as far as I know SE'* are the only version that don't have badges on the front doors. Like mine

I FINALLY saw a '92/'93 SSEi that was identical to mine today. I got all tingly when I saw it. Too bad it was a rusty mess. :(
