20psi + ABS + siped tires = got here ok.

I can't say the same for a couple other goofballs out there doing some drifting. Glad I came early and avoided the traffic.

The Zilla doesn't have ABS or TC any more. The SLEeper has ABS but not TC. No airbags either. So which one would you drive in the winter?

SSEi:
Heated windshield
Heated seats
Heated mirrors
No ABS
No Traction Control


SLE:
No heated WS
No heated seats
No heated mirrors (I have them, but not installed)
ABS works
Traction doesn't work
Airbags don't work

Only 92/93 option, quite rare. 92 got a switch, 93 is automatic. Only two cars on our Forum that I know of have it. Mine and Sandrock'*.

I made a Slushy with my antenna when it crunched and shaved ice on the way down.

Rare 92-93 Optiont that was VERY rarely checked off..it also included the 140 Amp Alternator. It comes on when you press the windsheild def button on the ECC i belive...large power draw though

125-amp alternator. 140 didn't become available in the Bonneville until 1994.

If you have the heated WS, you had a 124amp alternator from the factory. On the 92, the ECC/dash had an extra switch. On the 93, it'* automatic.

60-amp fuse powers it. 10-amp fuse for controls (relay), switched 60-amp feed. I actually saw my heater when I had the windshield replaced a few years ago. It'* just a heating element attached to the inside of the bottom edge of the WS, just below the wiper arms. You can't see it when the WS is installed, but you know it'* there in the winter.

Wow, thats a really cool feature!!! Zilla really does have like every option

But umm, curious no no ABS or traction? Did you disconnect them or something?

Anyways, I just got home, when i went out to the car it was -9*F and she started right up

B-E-A-UUUU-TIful day over here, absolutely perfectly CLEAR skies and cold as hell. I think the high is 17 today

Sorry to hear about those glare ice conditions bill, i have definitely busted my *** a few times because i didn't even notice it, and being that my parking lot is a slant , i have to crawl, very slowly back up towards the door.

Although, one day it really was good fun, i got the car out and put it on the grade in the parking lot and then get out and slide it around sideways and such. OH good fun

Most of the streets are currently packed snow.... on the way home, a truck and i were on a narrow street and i pulled over to the side for him, and OH SHEET, the RR tire hits and bounces off a curb, throwing me into a complete 180. And I was only going maybe 15 mph scared the crap outta me, thing was tho, the back end swung around like a slingshot and ALMOST swung right into the path of the truck. I got out and looked at the tracks, i would give that maybe 1 foot of error at the most.

that was close.

Anyways, just thought i should share my nice road conditions. hope everyone else is staying safe on the roads.

I think either John Wikoff or John Simons has a pic of the button, or it'* in the 92 user'* manual.

Zilla'* ABS and Traction have been out since about 6 months after I bought the car. Diagnosed as a bad PMV. I replaced it with one from a cadillac that crossed over, only to find it bad also.

I've been without ever since, but don't miss it. Not at all. Then again, Zilla doesn't ever see bad weather.
