Default BONNEVILLE R.I.P.

It has been reported in major car mags that the current Bonneville car and name will be put to rest after the 2005 run. Sales have been poor these last few years with only 27,000 units being moved during the first ten months of 2004. If there is to be a replacement it will be called the "G8" and will be either a full size sedan or a car based suv. A moment of silence please..... :(

This topic is rapidly becoming my favourite next to :How do I post pics? and Can I supercharge my NA Bonneville.

And yes, not to be rude, but we've heard this and discussed it many times.

Welcome to BC.com tho
