Let me know what you guys think. And also, What is the big difference between the regular LS and the Bayshore Edition besides the two-tone interior? Thanks.

I do like that interior. Very nice!!

Too bad it isn't a real convertible. That fake convertible top would be my only negative..

The two-tone interior is really the only big difference. Mechanically and in pretty much every other way it's the same as a regular LS.

I think that it looks awesome. I'm a big fan of any appearance package on these cars.

Thanks. I really like the interior too. I'm not really too fond of the top though, The stitching is starting to come out. But it helps with the two-tone look. Anybody know how I could fix the stitching on the top? She runs great and according to the Digital Gauge Cluster, I get about 23 MPG, And for a 4,000Lb car with a V8, I dont think thats too bad. I was thinking about getting a nice stereo setup, But the stock one sounds pretty good and I don't want to ruin the stock look, So I just got an Cassette tape adapter so I can hook up my iPod.

This is kinda cool. I'd take the top off if I were you though.

Two tone interior... That gives me some ideas. I like the look.

Pimplicious! I don't love the fake convertible tops either, but one thing for sure - it won't get lost in a parking lot. The interior is very nice. It's interesting to note how little the interior changed from '96 to '99.

I would take the top off, But wouldn't that require you to weld up all the screw holes that are in the car to hold the top down so water wont leak into the car? I like the overall look of the car, The top is alot of maintnance though. If there were not so much up-keep on the top, I would not have a problem with it. I like the "Grandpa Look" of the car, So when I fix it up, All the little Honda rice boys and A-Holes in the Mustangs and Camaros would never expect to be put in their place by a grandpa car, lol.

I never saw an interior like that before, very sharp. Also silver is my favorite color smile

But the carriage roof is very dated. I would pull it off when you're ready and do a full or landau vinyl job on it.

Are there holes? The whole thing might be glued on. I'd talk to a shop that has put one of those things on to see how it is attached. Even if there are holes, the glue would require a repaint of the top anyway. In that case, it would be a pretty simple matter to scab patch over the holes using polyurethane bodywork cement, apply a little edge filler and presto.

I had a friend with a Camaro back in the 80s that had the fake targa top. The vinyl started to go, so he pulled the whole thing off and was left with a row of studs welded to the centerline of the roof where the trim strip had mounted. The studs went when he had the car repainted another year or two later. There never had been any puncture of the roof by the top in that case.

I know what you mean about going with the 'grandpa look' of the car. About once a year I look at the grand pimp and think I really should get out the heat gun and see if I can get those wheel arch moldings off, but they're stuck on quite well and they do actually protect the wheel arches from door dings. Besides, the '99 has those really silly body side moldings anyway, so it's not like it would suddenly look all sano once the chrome arches were gone. So we go with it, and call it the Grand Pimp.

Car looks amazing. I usually don't like the "senior citizen package" on these cars but I like the roof on yours. For some reason it just looks right. Interior is impressive as well. Nice car!
