Default my 1987 bonneville

here she is. there are not many bonnevilles in the uk and this is the only one I have seen that has not got a body kit on it. I dont know much about them so can you tell me ? I know its a euro model.









the paint has gone on all of the tops, bonnet, roof, boot ( trunk ) so it will need to be repainted.

I also own a 1993 chevy corsica , a 1994 vauxhall corsa and a 2008 chevy kalos

got to take it for a MOT ( uk safty test ) the only part I may need is a radiator as it is leaking. but they cost way to much over here.

well I took my car for its MOT ( uk safety test ) and it did not pass. it need the front 2 brake flexi pipes and a steering arm that goes from the rack to the track rod end. my parts guy is going to see if he can get the parts.

I will let you know how I get on

it needs 2 front brake pipes and a steering arm. so not to bad. I have got all the parts. same day from my parts guy and I have fitted the front brake pipes. I have a mate comeing round this week to help me do the steering arm. all I have to do is take it back for its mot test and it should be back on the road.

Great to hear your getting her back in shape. I bet it'* weird feeling to be going by cars with the controls on the right.
