Default Good morning, Bonneville

Took these three yesterday morning. You can somewhat see how worn them Goodyears are.











And these two from the weekend...

Pressure washed


Sitting on the street (pardon that rust )

Very nice shots repinS.......

You should really take that car to a 1/4 mile... and just see what she does.... I'd be really curious.

It'* not original, as far as I know. Previous owner(*) had some work done. Rust is aplenty in terms of body panels, but it'* quite solid underneath.

You can see that crack running along the front of my hood. My car originally only came with only the very outer sections of the grille intact, must've been an awkward hit to take out the front of the hood and grille. Sourced a junkard one, luckily we inadvertently got a 1991-spec grille to match (the "Pontiac" in the grille broke off before installation though, damnit)

1/4 mile at the current moment = yes

considering the year your Bonneville is in really good shape. Usually Canada winters would have taken their toll to the point the body would be falling off on lesser cars.

I think Michigan winters are worse then winters in "our" part of Ontario...Toronto area never gets hit TOOO hard, so its possible to keep a car in good shape if maintained properly.

Back on track tho, lovin the pics Repin, you need some new tires soon..hahaha
