Default vinyl top bonnies.

i've seen quite a few 92-99 bonnies with vinyl tops lately..was this a factory option?...or dealer special type thing?

personally i thought they looked awful..really killed the look of the car

Most of us do things to look "less" like your grandparent'* car.

I've seen them. I seem to think that they were a dealer'* special order, but I could be wrong. They're not very common.

At least it looked good on the older ones...where they actually took the time to match it to the paint...

the older ones look good with it, because that was the style for those more square shaped big cars, there has to be a certian style of car for it to look right. Any of the 90s+ just dont look right with them.
