Default Oh jeez, I've been holding out on you guys! (56k bad)

I was running through all the Bonnie pics in my photobucket and realized that there'* a whole set I haven't posted here yet! Uhh, I looked for them at least, someone nudge me if you've seen them already! :P






The rest of them are pretty similar to the ones already here!

Eee, I miss my car (been in storage since October), but there'* some upcoming upgrades that will make it worth the wait!

Bill, the Bonneville will have to be trailered right after it'* pulled out of storage. The rims are bad and the tires are bald.

Performance mods (muahaha) are the easiest part, and will be done during a weekend when we don't have anything else to do. We already have about 2/3 of the parts...I love how my fiance has performance parts to fit a GM v8 SITTING AROUND THE HOUSE. I will never bug him about having too many random parts around again. Sidenote, my girl was parked with 87,000 actual miles.

Appearance restoration will be the harder part. There are some original trim pieces that are damaged, plus those nasty scrapes on the passenger side to fix (NOT from me) and the rear-end damage (from when I was rear-ended). I need to find 3 of four wheel well trim pieces, a rear bumper assembly, and new taillights. The strain from the bent bumper cracked both of my tails (can I cry now?). I will NOT be replacing the rims with another set of RWD steelies, as most junkyards want an arm and a leg for the elusive 14" RWD GM rims and the hubcaps are a pain in the arse anyway. It'll be getting 15"* with slightly smaller tires. It'* also time she had a paint job. The original paint is getting cracks and chips from age. The vinyl top is still in flawless shape.

lash, thank you! Me too.

MOS, paws off! I would be more than willing to try to find you another set of them if we find a parts Bonn during our junkyard searches on our honeymoon!

Bill, I sent you a PM!

Lash, I'm dating a redneck. His baby is his 1983 Chevy Silverado 4x4 3/4 ton Camper Special. We'll be looking for parts for both. His '83 is getting the good engine out of the other truck...a Chevy 350 with 15,000 miles on it, purchased roughly two years ago. It'* also getting painted metallic forest green, getting lifted, and getting the larger version of the rims I want on my car.

Hee, this explains both our honeymoon and the first picture ever taken of us together...
