i don't care it'* N/A i don't care how many miles, it'* HOT.

What do i have to do to get it?

That color has to be one of the best on the 96-99'*. Maybe i've starred at smellbirds car too much on freeways, but it'* the best, or tied with white as the best.

That is one fine Bonneville. You are aware of how rare the 40th Anniversary Editions are, correct?
Also, is it just the pic or has the drivers fender or front end been repainted/repaired? Looks like two different shades of plum.

Oh, and watch that coolant and upper intake -might want a drilled 180* t-stat as you're first investment -even before your next fill of gas.
And welcome to the club.
