Default Do you think we own nice cars?

Do you think in general we have nice cars?

When I see a car like a Maurader,Regal,a real Hummer,Corvette, or something I say wow nice set of wheels.

You think people think that when they see our cars?

A few of my workers say nice car to me and its a nice feeling. Im not a rich guy but Its nice to have someone say nice car to me. But 1 of my Co-Workers thought my car was a Crown Victoria

The bonneville is too common and doesn't have any one attribute that stands out on it'* own in my humble opinion. Jack of all trades, master of none? Not a bad thing, just what it is. They're great cars, and could be a classic later on, but FWD will hurt that.

i probly would get some 'nice car' comments if mine was glossy and black like urs, ppl still say its a nice car tho even if the roof paint is chipping, overall the bonne doesnt have any distinguishign features EXCEPT those seats, i have never seen a car with so many option on the seats, i have rod ein a newer bmw 7 series and the seats arent as comfortable as the bonne, but i suppose comfy seats arent enough to bring a car to 'classic' status, it sickens me to think that the pt cruiser will be more remebered than the bonneville

plus the bonne is stuck between categories, its fancier than the average large sedan, too fancy for alot of wallets, but because its a pontiac instea dof a buick or a caddy, its not luxury, and i tihnk its too much of a boat to be considered a sport sedan, altho a bare option SE would fit in with most sedans

Yes, I agree. Here in the Flint area, any 3800 powered car is "a dime a dozen". They are nice cars, don't get me wrong, but I own a Bonnie because it serves my purpose well. I'm not so much into The Pontiac Bonneville persay, but rather the power train. If I had found a Buick LeSabre for the same price I got the Bonneville at I'd probably be hanging out more often at a Buick forum!

I think we have nice cars, but I dont think people see a failrly stock bonnie and say damn thats nice. Especially not like average people do with the Maurader, real Hummer,Corvette. Truth is before I owned a bonneville I never noticed them like the $nice cars, unless they had one of those "wings"

I have gotten nothing but compliments on my car. Most don't believe me when I say it is a 94. I don't turn many heads, but anyone who talks to me when I am near my car always has something nice to say. Then if I let them sit in it they talk about what good shape my interior is in and they fall in love with it.

From what I can tell, Bonneville owners take good care of their cars around here. You see a few that are just falling apart, but I would say MOST are in pretty good shape.

I get compliments all the time about how nice a car the Bville is. I typically don't think so, but thats because my car has almost no options. But when you compare an SSEi to a Marauder, it exceeds what a "nice" vehicle should be.
Hummers are the one of the stupidest vehicles ever made. Way to big to useful.

when shes clean and shining........

I get "nice car what is it"
when I tell them its a Bonneville. then they ask what year it is.
I asume most dont know on mine because of the lack of badging.

even the first time I saw a 2000 model (in late 1999) I asked the owner what was it.
