Yes, the 92-94 yellow green metallic, gold pinstripes, camel leather, and gold crosslace wheels. It was a great Bonneville quite a long time ago, but I got it for $500 with 278K miles. At 290K, it was showing intense wear. The previous owner just beat on it all the time. This is what had to happen. Maybe.

A flat-black Bonneville? I need luster!

The current plans are to adapt a turbocharged Series II 3800 to a Porsche 930 transaxle for a mid-engine, RWD setup and a full-on tube chassis. Then there will be some sort of an interior for my new two-seater. It'll be like a lighter, bigger Fiero that'* easier to work on and is SCCA-approved for Modified Class racing.

Can you rice out a racecar?

There'* not much to sell. It'* most of a 94 Bonneville chassis in gray primer with a dead 290K mile shortblock that'* all rusted (the pushrods are merely rust rods; you can't tell what they are), and the transmission is probably dead too. This is the perfect Bonneville for a complete chassis do-over with a new and totally different engine/trans combo. It is not a Bonneville for someone to restore. That would take putting in an interior, painting it, putting in an engine/trans, getting wheels, etc. At that rate, it would take less work to make any Bonneville yellow green metallic with gold crosslaces.

But you're right, it'* a beautiful color combo. Not everyone appreciates the ghetto golds, but they definitely are cool.

Sorry about the thread hijack. There aren't any other Bonnevilles with non-factory paint?

Yep. I sold the gold crosslaces and bought those. I was able to buy the wheels and tires for less than the crosslace selling price.
