back when Pontiac actually advertised the Bonneville - Page 5 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


General GM Chat When starting new posts, please specify YEAR, MAKE, MODEL, ENGINE type, and whatever modifications you have made. Chat about all things GM (and related cars). Off-topic stuff should be in the Lounge, and all Model specific mechanical problems should be posted in the proper forum.

Wow, that old green Bonnie looks BAD!!!

BTW, I had a white Bonne with the while rims. It was my old '92. Man that was a sweet ride. I still think I like the overall style a little more than the newer, but I'm changing slowly as I admire my 2000.....

The only commercials I really see around me is for the G-6. I heard they weren't doing too good. Still, I hope it works out.....

It'* not a big suprise they don't say "Bonnville" on those ads anywhere. My car doesn't have Bonneville written on it at all. The badges say SSE and under that it says "Pontiac". I DID see one 92-95 with an SSE badge that said "Bonneville" under it. I guess they tried to make the SSE and SSEi'* their own models and in '95 decided to phase the name "Bonneville" back in for the next body style change. Who knows.

Dark city street, small misting on the road, jet black GTP, and a deep cigarette smoking voice said, "Wider is better." Then I pointed at the screen (age 14 at the time) and said, "Yes...yes it is! And I want that freaking car."
i have that freakin car(although a 99 instead!!LOL!!)
