Default It'* not a Bonneville, but...

...parts DO live on! Here they are folks, after several requests... some driveway shots of my '99 Aurora with a recent exterior modification. Car looks almost black in many of these shots (it was overcast), but the color is actually Evergreen.

BEFORE ... not a bad looking car
















AFTER ... much better!

INTERIOR... the gauges & controls surround the driver like an airplane cockpit. Excellent!



Climate controls on the left, stereo controls on the right!



Rim size stayed the same (16") from the stock Aurora alloys to my Bonneville'* salvaged chrome torque stars. The tires already mounted are slightly thinner... 225/60R16'* as opposed to the Aurora'* stock 235/60R16'*. I'll go back to 235'* and maybe a little lower profile (55'* or 50'*) when it comes time for new rubber. Comments are welcome and appreciated.
