Yeah tell my friend with a Park Ave that

And then you have the Park Ultra.... Nothing like a little SC to go with that Luxury swamped car

Did you hear that whine? Wow was that Buick ?

Yeah, wait til I paint my wheels green, put on a whaletail and put on some type "R" stickers, that'll add 25 or 30 hp right there...

Oops, sorry...wrong forum.

No one mentioned my incident, going about 40 mph, a car from opposing traffic turned into my at about 15mph. I spun her car around, while not budging a bit, and didn't feel much force at all. No soreness or neck ache at all, car never stopped running, still runs to this day, although insurance totalled it. Safety-wise, I feel incredibly confident in my Bonneville.
Pics:


versus the other car, note that I only hit her front passenger side just in front of the wheel well.


Impact caused whiplash for the other cars passengers, and the driver had bruising on her legs and injured her shoulder.

This '96 SE took a multiple rollover off the highway @ 100km/h. Both the driver and his girlfriend walked away.

My parents' old 98 SE. Conversion van ran a traffic light going 40-50mph and smacked me. Car was totaled, girlfriend and I walked away without a scratch. The wheel on the driverside rear was pushed out about six inches from normal.
