A Bonneville being mistaken as a GTO........ that'* pretty sad.
No disrespect to the Bonneville or the GTO.... but they are two VERY different classes of vehicles IMHO.

I'm going to have to go with......



on this.....

Eh, its only natural that someone who knows nothing about cars would confuse a GTO with a SSEi. They think since the SSEi is fast that it must be a GTO.

Ur mom thought a 96 was a GTO? She might need her noggin checked out. j/k

SSEi != fast, The GTO is in a totally different class of handling, fit and finish, and focus. A Bonnie can't touch it IMO.

Whats worse is when people intentionally call it the wrong name. When I first got the Bonne, a few of my friends insisted on calling it the "Bonerville". That did not sit well with me at all.
