Default The 2005 Bonneville ad, Pontiac should have made!

Okay I got fooling around and took the Canada Bonneville built for drivers and got that from the Canada Bonne brochure (downloadable) and then build around that put it in a all white 640X480 and pasted the interior and red SLE photo... Then I changed the color of the Bonneville logo (back ground) and changed it to black! So tell me what you think of the ad Pontiac should have had! Enjoy! (I must admitt its my best photo chop work yet)

I'm sitting here with my two local daily newspapers opened to the auto section. They both have big Pontiac ads. They read:

l) See The Hot New G6s!

2) The New Pontiac G6---For Drivers With Attitude!

Interesting that in the last several years, NO mention has been made of a Bonneville in any newspaper ad.

At the five Pontiac dealerships within a reasonable drive of my house, NO Bonneville brochures are ever in the rack.

Right now, a new G6 is in the showroom, right in front, with a spotlight shining down on it so you see it even driving by at night. They have NEVER put a Bonneville in the showroom at all, let alone in front or under a spotlight.

We have a Fourth of July parade here every year. The local Pontiac dealer always drives a demo vehicle in the parade, all decked out with red, white and blue crepe. he has driven a Grand Am, Grand Prix, Sunbird and Montana. This year he drove a G 6. He has NEVER driven a Bonneville in the parade.

Gee, I sure cannot imagine why the Bonneville hasn't been selling very well.
