A Motortrend hinted at Pontiac was working out the Bonne. "Like the rest of the Pontiac line, Grand Am will have shed its cladding by '05. The division'* lineup is in flux, with Bob Lutz ordering myriad changes to the entire GM line. One casualty is the Pontiac Banner, which was the plan for an upper-midsize car to take the place of the Bonneville, taking on such affordable sport sedans as Acura'* TL." Pg 25 April 2002 Issue
Line up any one of those Acuras in the street I'll rip 'em all and I got 130K miles on my engine.
Anyway, I hadn't heard a model year until this post, and I find it a strange coincidence that '04, the year of the alledged death of the bonne, is also the year that the GP gets the new body style it'* been needing for years (as well as elimanating the coupe version).

Long live Bonneville!!

*sigh* This is tragic. If it'* true, I might need to seek crisis counselling!!! I guess I had better get going on getting my '03 G/xp...
Think I can get a $40,000 loan at 19? lol
I doubt a petition would be very effective.
We don't even have very many members...

I have just found an extremly disturbing post on clubgp. They are saying the Bonneville is going to be cut for '04!! one guy even said he heard that from a reliable source...and get this...
MOST OF THEM WANT TO SEE IT CUT!!
the post is: Which cars would you pick for GM to ax by 04?

Nooooooooooo *echo* Not the beloved Bonnie! It'* got full intermentaion incuding boost guage in numbers!! Oh Man!! that sucks!!

Uh oh... this means they could mark the GP WAAAAAAAY up when the Bonnie is gone and the GP could grow huge and take it'* place... that would suck. Or perhaps like Olds, Pontiac will no longer offer a gigantic luxury sedan.

CAN YOU BELEIVE THE **NERVE!!!!!!!!!!!**

OOOOOOOOOOH i can't believe it.

If you look at the reasoning it makes alot of sense your mad and probably a lot more people are too, but the only way to get people to notice is to say awwww were gonna cut it. Both the Bonneville and the GP have been around for a long time and they each are a valued unit. I think both need a v8 option. But as it stands the Bonneville I have will have a v8 I donít know if you could fit an 8 in a GP. I doubt it.
