lets be realistic... do you buy a car because of the name...?? I didnt buy a bonnie because of the name, i bought it because i liked how it looked and drove... it could be called the pontiac "rollingturdinator" and i still would have bought it.

Now Im not sure on the G8, but if it has the lines of the Bonneville on it, I might just debage that G8 bull**** and rebadge it with two bonneville badges[lower park of the SLE side badge], doubtful it will keep the lines tho. I only hope it will be on par with the market, or GM completely goes nuts and puts the */C N* in it as the top end performance model.
