Its funny you mention that... A long time ago a good friends 87 Bonneville had that window lockout feature... But that was one of the only Bonnevilles I ever saw it in...

Yeah they bought that car in 88 from Avis Rental, it had 10,000 miles on it... I think they paid $10,000 for it.... His dad used to lock the windows on us...LMAO

Isn't it weird....the lockout is on many cars but not bonnevilles.

They must have figured we were too high class to need the lock out feature.

I know this is my fault b/c i put flowmaster exhaust on....

I hate the drone in the exhaust at about 2k rpms. If you just leave it at 2k it just sounds like flat exhaust.. no rumble or baffle to it. So i learned how to drive accordingly..but when i first started it was pretty loud inside the car. I hide it now I for one, LOVE the cup holders! Theres soo many! haha
