This is heresy to the name "Bonneville". They are clearly using the "Salt Flats" meaning and not the "Pontiac" one. What? Are all "performance" GMs going to be called "Bonneville". That cheapens the memory of the Pontiac Bonneville.
Oh and yeah. That HHR will sell as well as the other one.
BTW, INTENSE built the trans for that, or at least major chunks of it. The picture hangs on their wall alongside a picture of a similarly built Cobalt, and the Spririt of Bonneville, the 200MPH FWD Bonneville SSEi.
This is very good to know. I had suspected that it'* a "Bonneville" because of the salt flats, but I wasn't too sure. Are we certain that Bonneville won't be coming back as the name of a fast car? I know the Star Chief earned its name in 57 by being the fastest car there, so is it possible?
