I prefer a roar, then a whine. One sounds like a beast, one like a bad woman.

Yes they do haul, and after a few mods you really wake them up, and light the fire inside.

I prefer the intake wail of a DOHC engine (you know, kinda like those honda DOHC things) but those honda'* are kinda lacking something... oh wait... i know, a proper number of cyl'*. ya know, i really like the wail of my DOHC V8...

Mine cruises great at 90!! Took a run down to Owatonna (Cabellas had a sale). Got to the open highway outside the metro, and let her glide.... Hard to tell the difference between 30 and 90 sometimes

Mine cruises great at 120!! And your kinda right, it'* difficult to tell the difference sometimes, about the only difference is needle on the speedo. with my bonneville i started to get wind noise much above 90, with the mark, there isn't really any wind noise....

I would drive faster but I made a promise to someone that I would try to go no faster than 72mph. So I try to keep that promise

I to love my bonne I had a 91 lumina and thought it was great with a 3.1 v6
kept seeing bonnevilles around and took a 97 SE for a ride.(it was not lowly) I was hooked more power, more room, and boy did it take off. kept it for a few years then saw the new style and fell in love again.
