I would love to have one, but my Bonne is good enough for now and hopfully for a long time. Too bad Bonnys weren't a manual that would be fun. I love driving manuals, but no offense people are too lazy or don't know how to use a stick shift. I think every car should have an opptional manual.
A 4T60E Bonneville can swap their tranny for a Getrag like the Turbo Grand Prix'* do and get a 5 spd.
sounds interesting...how much $$ ??

The price is quite a bit since the Getrag'* are kinda getting rare, especially the flywheel for it. You might be able to get away for 1k but you would have a 5 spd and have more fun.

I have to say of all the car msg boards I am part of this is the most mature and well behaved one yet. No street racing arguements or bashing whos got a better car, just comradary found no where else. The mods must do a good job but they dont have to do much since the members are a good bunch. I will lurk or maybe even post but for now my Taurus SHO is my pride and joy. Take care all. - Chris
So, lets just start up one of those "my car is better than yours" arguements

I have a 8 second Bonneville (seriously)

anyone wanna bite???
Yeah, lets get a ford vs pontiac bonneville thing going here... I might loose my *** aginst the SHO.... what would the GP guys say about the SHO when it takes off on them... It'll problably be another BS flag..

Hey burgundy, is you Bonneville a 95 SE and medium garnet red with the graphite colored interior? And 5 spoke factory alloys?
I am thinking its the medium garnet red, and yes the 5 spoke alloys. Why?

Just wondering if it looks like my car... There seems to be a lot of these here in FL.. Look at my avatar....
the actual color of my car is "Medium Garnet Red Metalliac" that is off of the touch up paint thingy cant tell you if the interior looks the same though cause you dont have a pic up
