Default My first whorage (MAJOR - not 56k friendly!)

Well, I finally took some pictures of my Bonnie...it'* a 2004 SE fully loaded, leather, OnStar, sunroof, traction, 3.05 gearing, etc...basically a SLE without the body work. I just gave it a bath, leather treatment on the interior, and waxed it. Windows tinted 35% front/rear doors and 20% rear window. SilverStar Ultras in the lows and highs. Figured it'd be a good time for pic taking, altho it wasn't as bright outside as I would have liked...and the camera was terrible. Note the "Pontiac Excitement" pinstriping...is that common? ENJOY!!

Lookin' good...I really like the tint.

I also enjoy the shot where you are sprawled across 3 handi-cap parking spots.

I've seen that pinstriping package on just about everything Pontiac made from the late 90s to the early 2000s. I think it was a dealer option/promotional thing.
One particularly hideous example was purple/pink striping/lettering on a red Grand Am GT.

I like the color combo on yours, though. Very nice...

Looks very nice, and I am extremely jealous of your pinstriping.

BTW, I swear I have been to that park. LONG time ago though.

That'* a good pinstripe. Also, you have a very clean interior. That'* something I've been missing for a long time.

Bonneville92V688 - that park is Goodyear Heights Metro Park in Akron.
PetraMan - I am definitely going to get some club stickers. Bath is a real nice area, 5 mins from Fairlawn. I actually live in The Valley, love it down there.

Thanks for the comments guys - I'm pretty proud of her. I am very meticulous with the interior, I used Meguires leather treatment...it even has ALOE in it, lol. Really makes the leather soft and brings back the leather scent. I clean it very well about once a week. I don't always use the leather cleaner tho, but I keep it cleaned. I also restored the headlights and it really made a big difference. The only problem it has is a few burned out dash lights (which actually REALLY irritates me) and the damn OnStar antenna fell off (they had to remove it when they tinted the windows).

I definitely like the pinstriping too...I haven't seen another Bonneville with it in this area. Sets it apart a little bit.
