You're right Ben. With some mods an L67 can run with the best of V8s and do so with reliability and durability. I'm not a big fan of multivalve engines. They seem to have oil and head gasket issues. Honestly, I don't think a DOHC could withstand the hard driving I do with my vehicles. Honestly, if GM would have made L67 powered cars RWD with a manual option that engine would be around for many more years. As far as i'm concerned people can go out and throw down $60K on the next best thing. All us L67 owners gotta do is put $2K in mods in and blow their doors off.

Yep, and most people who can afford one will be think they know it all and think there top ****. I bet you half of them wont even know what a Bonneville is. So they will flock to the 300c and 500 forums. Thats just what I think.

$2k and smoke a top v8? I don't many people on $2k addons beating GTO'* at the track.... Or the New 'Stang GT.

A v8 and RWD brings back the real drivetrain all of our vehicles shoulda had.

You may be right, Twister. But when you really think about it, there'* nothing we can do except for directing people toward this site. We will all still come here to chat and talk cars, and that'* good enough for me. Bonneville, G8, or whatever may come down the road, it'* still just my car, lol. This site will live on. No question!

We will have to rename this to the Bonneville and G8 Club. That'* what some Grand Am clubs did when the G6 came out.

I think the fact that the New car will be a completely different car. The G6 still uses the same tranny/layout, some engines, etc.
