1999 SSE..... I looked at this car today. Thought I'd check to get some informed opinions about its appearance. Thanx.

1: What'* the badge on the front fender in front of the wheel?
2: Those are Grand Am wheels on there I think.

Edit: bah, beat out by a minute....

Kinda hard to give a critical opinion from just one pic. Although,to me,those look like GA wheels

Yes, very quickly spotted. This was the only picture there is. I admit to hedging a bit. Plus I was there and you don't have that advantage.

On '99 whites the pontiac badge is red not silver. The trim is chrome not white and the surround on the grille is distinguished not white. The V6 badging and wheels i took as a Grand Am. Any of these way off?

Looks allright. Badge looks good there. At least with the smaller wheels you'll go quicker

i believe those GA wheels are 16s as well arent they? they do look smaller ill agree, but im pretty sure theyre 16s, but they arent as wide as Bonnie rims IIRC, perhaps thats what you were referring to.

and i think the "3800 V6" badges off of a GP would have been a better choice if you were going to put badges on it.
