I remember when I was looking for Bonnie'* out there last winter, I had a heck of a time finding a car I wanted, and sure enough I didn't get one. I would just be patient, something will come up.

If you find one at a decent price, having it painted could solve your problem.

Expand your search. Check the Detroit and Flint areas. The Flint area, especially, is rich in Bonneville'*. And they're cheap around here!

I just put a club card on a purple 96/97 SLE last night, as well as a black 92/93 SSEi. This is the FIRST purple SLE I've seen locally. Odd that they're in some areas, and not in others.

a popular color around there must be, We have a couple of them (mostly 40th) around here. What'* wrong with purple anyway? compliments the bonnie very well, if asked.

There is a purple 1998/99 SLE here in Sauk Centre, as well as a black 40th SSE and purple 40th SE, a couple 96-99 SSEi'* (I had the first one -now there are probably 5 or 6), and no other 96-99 SSE'* besides mine. I also noted today that there are 4 2000-2001 SLE'* in town now and no SSEi'* of the same vintage. Funny thing about the tan 00/01 SLE is it has a bad ELC controller and the a$$ end sits up about what seems like 8 inches.
I suppose I better print some MNBC and BC cards up to pass out -there must be 40 1987-2004 Bonneville'* here in Sauk Centre, which only has a population of slightly under 3,500.

Purple SLE?

Seen 3 93'* like mine in town SO atleast 4 of mine? I've seen ONE anywhere else (includes the twin cities). Seth'*, andrews parents are other notables. Yes that purple is one of the nicest ones for 96-99 SSE/i bodies.
