Default Saw 2 oddballs on Friday....

Running around town doing errands with Katie (pooky Jr.), and saw two Bon'*. First one was for sale. Green 92 SSEi. Bubble butt, and bad wear showing on the leather. Not worth 3300 bucks US in my opinion, but I didn't pop the hood or check the miles.

2nd was a glimpse at first. Saw the car and could have sworn I saw SSE badges on it'* way by, but it had SE tails. Car came through again (through the drivethru where we were eating), and confirmed. 94 or 95 SE (judging by the non-92/93 grille). SE front bumper, no ground effects, wide driving lights, SE rear bumper and tails, but all 3 SSE badges in the right locations.

So it'* either a re-badged SE, or it was sandwiched in a wreck and SE parts installed to repair damage. This is possible considering how hard it is to find an SSE or SSEi at a wrecker.

A bubblebutt SE is rare enough, but an SSEi? I've only seen 2 in person.

I think all you need is a cheesy insurance company that won't spring for a proper replacement SSE (spoiler-equipped) trunk lid after a rear-end collision, and Bingo: a bubble-butt SSEi. I suspect you'll see _more_ of those rather than less as time goes by.

Yeah, there are a couple Bonneville'* around here with the SSE/SSEi emblems in all the correct paces. One is a Red one (1995'ish), one is white (same circa), and the other is a green one. One thing they all have in common besides the emblems are the wheels which are the polished face/dark insert crosslaces.
I could swear one of them had the dual turn-down tips coming from opposite ends of the rear bumper too.
I'll have to take a closer look next time I see them.
