Well it'* canvas, i wouldnt do canvas myself, a nice vinyl or leather maybe...

It would need to be glossier then that, and not intrude onto the doors or the rear window. I saw a rivieara with a rag top on it, and it was nice!

But it'* not a convertible. It'* just a canvas roof. The guy down the block has a car just like this. I wonder if it was actually offered as an option from Pontiac at some point? It'* options like this that give Bonnie'* the "grandpa car" image.

You're right. It does say it was custom in the description. But I swear I've seen a car just like this several times down the block from where I live. And I live in Wisconsin. That car'* supposed to be in Florida.

I'* not too hard really, Tee original Roof is probably still under it, and they literally cut it to fit, slap it up, and bolt it down.

Edited cause i can't type well right now...

even though they were "sapposed to be changed" they look very fimiliar to the 92+* they re-desing wasn't a total one to me, they look like the nineties bonnes to me just a lil more aggressive, U see they kept the same concept just a little more cladd'n here and their but, I wouldn't call it a total re-design, to me 91 was the last real re-desing cause they look almost nothin alike, (didn't even know what the 86-91 bonne looked like until someone told me like 2yrs ago) I do agree with U to a certain extent 95SCSE, but I don't think I was a total, I guess they weren't ready to give up that style just yet.

I think keeping all fogs on the inside is nice. Angel eyes and HID should be standard, and Angel eye fogs maybe.... I think a bigger grill, and wider is nice, and the car should definetly be wider in proportion to the new ones.
I love the quarter panels on my car because they can't friggin rust like every other car I have owned.
