Default I got to be honest!

Ive had 3 Bonnevilles so far and i love em! I don't think i will own a car that'* not a Bonneville. i might have a few trucks but.... I cant help it, i am a Bonnie nut. I would love to own a fully loaded 1999 SSEI with air ride suspension. they are such a smooth and comfortable car and the performance is great. I love the 1992-1999 body styles.

I sold my pride and joy to buy the Bonneville i have now. I sold my 2001 Yamaha Raptor 660R!

I'm a fan of '92-'99. I think other just look too large no real style.

GXP, no style??? The largeness attracted me to the 2005 Bonneville. I came out of a Park Ave into a LaCrosse and couldn't take it. Wimpy legroom and trunk space.

Same here. After test driving some Mid-side sedans I knew I wasn't going to get another compact. Then there was the Bonne....

I like the new body style also as long as its not the base model. maybe i prefer the older body style because i don't have money to buy a newer one and i'm partial. My buddies parents had a 2002 or 03 with a v8. i believe it was a 5.3, but could have been a northstar. i just feel in control in the older body styles. it seems like the new ones drive you instead of you driving the car. they r almost to sophisticated for me.

but im sure when i do buy a new one i will love it.

the pic in my signature is my old Bonneville. i kind of destroyed that one and got ride of it. i just bought a 1992 Bonneville SE with 133,000 miles. i have pics in my album on my profile.

A Bonne with a V8? If that'* what they had it was a GXP with the Northstar and year 04 or 05. 2000-03 never came with a V8 in the Bonne.

I'll have to check that album out.
If they had a Bonne with a V8, it was a GXP of '04-'05 vintage and had the 4.6 Northstar

Great looking car. I must say I kind of like that body style as well.
