Default New member from NYC: 1988 bonne-SSE

What'* up everyone! New member here from NYC. I am very glad to become a member of one of the finest websites for the "Ol School" Bonnies, as well as the "New School". . I will post pictures at a later date. Must do some upgrades to the bonnie, because living in NYC, people have a tendency not to respect people'* property. .

Nevertheless this website is great. I have learned alot about my vehicle, thanks to this endless realm of knowledge with qualified techs as well as novices like myself. Maybe someone out there can address this subject: Where can I find original rear tail lights for the 88 bonnie w/ the black rib lines? My clear casings have been broken on both sides from so-called "street ballerz". Can anyone help? Thanks alot for any input.

Welcome to the club... You are going to have an ultra hard time finding those Tails in good shape... There were not too many 88-91 SSE'* made, so the tails for them were discontinued for them a long time ago... They are very few and far between...

Good Luck

jr's3800 thanks for the encouraging news, what the h*** was GM thinking about? Hope they didn't think that these tail ights would last forever, or did they? One other question off note if I may, new here. What does it mean where my user name is, underneath it, it has "LE Member". Is that the model of my vehicle?, or is it my newbie status? Because I have an 88 bonnie SSE model. Please help!

Welcome.

It'* taken me over a year to find a decent pair of tail lights for my 90. The key is to be patient and look EVEWHERE! I go to junk yards now and then, I have a couple of buddies that own towing companies that keep an eye out, I've spotted one or two behind gas stations/repair shops, and even asked a guy if he'd sell me his right off of the car he was driving. Ebay and the For Sale forum here are a couple more places where you might find one or both.

Good luck and lets see some pics of your car.
