Default American car show photos

Here are a few photos I took at an American car show in Northampton:

The '89 Bonneville was in superb shape apart from one or two missing bits here and there (like the driving lights). It was a Canadian spec one like my '88 but had done only around 55,000 miles!

Didn't Pontiac do this once before w/o too much success? They called it the GTO, and the car buying public said "GT What"?

Once again, it'* a matter of taste. Obviously I have none!

Thanks, but how do you tell a '58 from a '59 Corvette? I couldn't figure out the difference.

dillcc, the white one isn't mine. Mine is a grey '88.

58 was the only year for the luvored hood and the only year for the two chrome strips up the trunk (boot).
