Which gen. bonneville appeals the most to you?

I drool over the classic rwd'* 5% [ 1 ]


Talk about being in the minority. Don't get me wrong. I think todays cars are MUCH better than days gone past. It just seems to me that the "Classic RWD'*" ( Especially in the 1960'*) had much better styling. Plus, you could SEE the difference between a 1960 and 1961(etc.) Bonneville in an instant.

I thought you were talking about the early 80'* at first.

I love them all... I'm just sorry to see the current generation looks to much like the Grand Prix.

My favorites has alway been the white 92-99 with the chrome... oh baby.

Finally found a '97 under 100k with the 5 spokes and chrome trim.
Only 1 problem, reverse light lens has oxidized yellow.
Anyone else have this problem, or is "burt" plastic from the bulb?

I am kind of partial to the 96-99 flight. I owned a 97 SE (put 110,000 miles on it) prior to this one, and that was one solid car. Love all the Bonnevilles through out the years.

94 of course! Actually all of them, but the 92 to 99 mostly. I agree the newer ones look too much like a grand prix, but hey I'd take one if someone wanted to give it to me real cheap!

Actually the GP'* look like the Bonneville. The Bonnie got the new body style in 2000, while the GP got it in 2004.

I think he was comparing the previous Gen Gps to the present Gen bonne'*? anyway, has to be 96-99 followed by 92-95 then 00+ after that um....... oh the early 80'* an back
