Yea.. we thought about doing that a while back ( I remember that... many mooons ago.. hee hee ). The GA are easy to do as some years there'* actually an additional red lense inside the housing assembly and all you have to do is remove it. A friend of mine ( Muffin knows him as Model material.. ha haha ) has done it to his after I was thinking into doing it. The Bonnie would not be easily done as the red tinge ( or at least on mine 97 ) was actually on the outer lens, and the internal lens cover is clear. You'd have to find a way to strip the red tinge off without leaving an ugly smoke film on it.. good luck. AFter seeing my friends 92 GA GT done with RED LED'* tailights.. I decided to ditch the project since it looks ugly and it blinked retarded.. and at times don't blink at all.. ha ha ha.. o well... his car is dead by the way hee hee.. way too many problems and is drivng a PT LOOSER now.. ha ha ha. The Altezza style tailights wouldn't be that bad of an idea if someone can photoshop it for all to see and vote on ? I wanted to distinguish my rear end of my car a long time ago and decided and did my custom Pontiac sign instead. I also put on a huge skull decal on the rear window ( which I"ll be removing since it'* put right where it blocks the sensor for my rear view mirror tinting unit ) and replacing it with some nice funky dragon decals later on.... humm... maybe Bonneville Type R decal on the side ?? lol.. woo hoo... 25+ HP per sticker.. here I come.. ha ha ha.. kiddin about the last one.

I personally disagree with some of you guys. I do think a Bonneville would look kinda twisted with european style lights . However I think that the Grand Am from car domain does look pretty good. I don't know why but something about the tail lights on that car compliments a Grand Am.

Thats just my personal opinion.

No way man....if it can be done on a Bonneville and done right, then I'm all for it

Its only a bad thing since we've only seen them on riced out Neons and Tercels....I actually saw Euro lights on a Hyundai Accent (97)...it was BRUTAL.

I just don't want our classy rides to fall victim to rice outs....

Well... again.. to each their own.. on certain model year ( body style ) it might be alright.. I looked at the pics of the rear end of my car.. and know how they look on a GA GT.. and tryin to morph that look to a Bonnie in my head.. and NOPE.. no good... I don't even think Altezza style would look good either... ( myabe if done right ). Altezza style howevever may look better on pre 95'* and even 89'* ( hint hint 89 ) but hey.. whatever turns your crank.. maybe if someone does it and posts a pic.. I maybe convinced otherwise that it looks great... but I don't think it would be considered Rice.. a lil Ricey?? Maybe.. but Rice would require you to slap on a 4 foot wing for sure..hahaha

It'* not gonna sound like a weed whacker because you don't have the right engine, you have to swap in one of those Honda engines(a C25A should work) and then slap a few VTEC stickers on then it will sound like one
