Im the same way. You dont really know what you have until you no longer have it. Driving a Bonnie every day, you take it for granted. But then when you have to look at a sticker price of 20k+ for a new vehicle and it doesn't compare to your old Bonnie in terms of ride comfort, features, and performance, you start to appreciate "these old grandma" cars some more. (Not what I call em, but some idiot people do who dont care or even know of a good car when they see one.)

On the off topic, who the hell thought up the Bonneville as a grandma car? Grandma cars are Devilles and Sevilles, but not a sporty Pontiac!

Who can get bored..

Drive across country with a couple nuts that were eyeing the seats everytime they got out. Comfy.. you bet.. fast.. uh..usually...

Now.. just finished putting new front pads, rotors and brake hoses on the car.. all were lifetime replacements except the fresh hoses. I'm going to send out some seriously overdue parts.

Bored..? No...
This is my third SSEi now, basically the same interior, same options that kinda thing, im comfortable with them now, i know how they work and how to fix em for the most part(well Series 1 L67'*)
Id have to agree with wren, alot of other cars dont compare unless you REALLY fork over alot of cash, thats one of the reasons i fell in love with my first 93

Hell yes I get tired of my Bonne. That'* why I break it up and drive the Jeep (funny, I NEVER get tired of that though )
Although after a day in the F350 the Bonne feels nice.

And the Charger SRT/8 have been looking better and better, G6 aint bad either, and then there'* the new Camaro coming out...........Oh jeez, I'm just a racoon, when it comes to shiny things I just want to get my paws on them.
