They wont keep the Bonneville name because US carmakers are adicted to playing catch-up with the japanese automakers and thier naming schemes.

Depends upon the amount of letters the quality of the content and who they come from. After all GM does (Pontiac, a lady by the name of Susan) does regonize us, and if we write we could get somewhere. (farther than you would think) But seriously what you said is a generalization, I think this is a very tough case but hey look what happend in the late 80'* with the Mustang anyone remember? Sorry that was off topic anyways, ummm that N* Star is the LD8 RPO!

Car companys go for whats hip and G8 would be more hip than Bonneville.

In like 10 years when that fad is out they make bring back Bonneville but I doubt it.
