Wow, sold new in France!

All you have to do to get your pictures to work is click on the little icon at the top that looks like a polaroid photo and insert your image in the blank.

Nice looking Bonne zen!

Not too easy finding repair parts here in the US for these cars either. Wink

Looks good, Looks like you have the rare 4 barrel option! Seems like all the 59 pontiacs are 2 barrel or 3X2 barrel.

ZEN.....really nice Bonneville you got there. I've never seen one of those extra reservoirs on a master cylinder before. Should make it easier to check for possible leaks. I was also wondering what those extra relays and that round black thing around the voltage regulator and horn relay are. Anyway, welcome to the forum and happy motoring.....John
