But on the Bonneville by keeping the handle in the release position it is much easier, sure the hand brake like I had on previous cars is way easier but with a bit of practice the foot operated one with the handle in "constant release mode" could be fun to. I may just have to try that when Renee is NOT around to see me, LOL.
Most bonnies have that release as well. I know for sure 95 and later does, 93 did not.

Stupid foot brakes.
My 94 had it, And my 93 now does.

Our 97 has the release where you push it again to release it and I actually like it more for sliding and such b/c you can be steering with both hands without being worried about reaching down to release it. Although the best is probably when you shim the release in the 93 because then you can just push it down and let go without hesitation.

And whoever said you can't have fun in our cars, obviousely isn't doing something right, I have more fun in my car than my friends little fucus just because mine'* bigger and its feels way cooler to get it into a 4 wheel drift, then bring it back an continue driving.

just my $.02
