Default Bonne-skank-us!

Hi there,
It'* been a while since I've taken some pictures, so during break at work today I decided to snap a couple.
Bonnesaurus and I have had some bad months recently. Being unemployed for four months had my thoughts drifting to selling it. Instead, I sold my Jeep Grand Cherokee and bought a Pontiac Sunfire to save on gas to commute to my new job. The gas savings have allowed me to keep it :Thumbs

Recently I got rid of the bra, ground down the hood rust and touched it up. It turned out okay, just needs a wet sand and polish.

Enough with the gab, on with the pics. Hope you dig.

Adam

My $600.00 commuter car, a 1996 Sunfire. It is a 5 speed, has A/C and only had 129,000km (80,000 miles) on the clock. The gas savings are HUGE!

Looks great. The newer wheels really set off the older body style

Hey, thanks for the props, guys.
The stereo plate lights up and has script laser cut into it. There is a red ribbon of material behind it to give it the colour. It'* pretty cool looking. Here is a better picture of it with my Pioneer deck installed. (The Pioneer went into my Sunfire, the X-Plod now in the Bonneville came out of my Jeep, I like the red lighting as it matches the rest of the dash)
It hooked into a 12V source that has power only when the lights are on. I bought it off a member from a different forum.

OH, I agree about the ash tray. Great to stash odds and ends in!
