Default Seen on the road!

In recent months I have been paying closer attention to Bonnevilles around my area. I have seen 4 2005 SLE'*! Including mine, one Cranberry Red with the works moonroof and leather, one Graystone with leather and no moonroof, one Ivory White I think it is just like mine as far as options and theres mine! I was really suprised to find one optioned like mine because most have leather and moonroof! They all had the stunning chrome wheels! I know there are 3 GXP'* in my area 2 White-Gold ones (wonderful color) and one Black one! I have heard the exhuast note and blows my SLE'* already decent note away they sound bad a$$! Just some roll call!

SLE'* are a very commonly sold trim level for the bonneville. Along with the SE'*. At least here in the midwest region.

I've only seen one GXP in my area but there are quite a few SE'*. And once and awhile I'll see alot ofearly 90'* SSEi and there are even one or 2 other 96-99 SSEi'* I've seen. Not to mention on my way to work a few times aweek I always see a 2000+ Silver SSEi at the same intersection going to opposite direction as me.

I see a couple GXPs here in rochester, but 2 of the three I have seen are on dealer lots. There are a couple 92-95 white SSEi'* running around, one with an SE front bumper on it and one with an SE rear bumper on it. There is a 92-95 green spoilerless SSE and a tan spoilerless 96-99 SSE here too. Bunch of pre-92 as well.

In binghamton there is a guy who I keep meaning to stop and talk to. He has an 88-91 SSE, 2 92-95 SSEi and a 96 SSEi. Also had an older lesabre and a neon of the bright lime green persuasion.
