But I have an SE (with leather hahaha) anyway. I was rolling to work the other day and some riced out Nissian Sentra a newer one and I roared away from the stop light and the look on his face was priceless when I pulled away...Ah GM how I love thee.

Got it no street racing here, just going from zero to seventy on 4 lane highway.

I think it varies between trim level. Stripped SE= 70years on up. Remember old folks don't like gadgetry. SE with some options= 60 years on up. However, the 3.06 may deter 80 years+ as they may complain about the car having " too much pick up" as my grandma did for her 87' Bonneville. She likes her old Dynasty better. SLE and SSE= 40- 60 years. I see many middle aged executives driving these. SSEi= 20- 50 years. Great car for start up families used to driving sports cars and don't want to give up sports car charactoristics. I can't see ANY old person driving a car with red guages.

Honestly, anyone who thinks because a car has 4 doors its for old people has a ricer mentality.

thats untrue, the nissan skyline has 4 doors and its a ricer'* wet dream. generally old man cars are american made, and boxy or large, the old t-bird and cougars (early 90'*) are 2 door RWD with the 5.0 available, but because they ar elarge and on the boxy side they are old man cars. i would say the bonneville is too stylish and has too many gadgets to be an old man'* car, i cant imagine an 80 year old driving a car with a SC and a HUD. but it'* size and nationality put it in the old man'* car category, dont forget, itsessentially equal to the buick PA
