Hot damn guys.. I don't seem to have any problems with people identifying my car. They all know it'* a grandpa Bonneville. But they get some years mixed up. One person thought mine was a late 90s . I think that may have been a complement, though.

yeah 'rora dude, what'* wrong with a Buick? There are some nice ones.. maybe not the Century [no offense.. but they are kinda ugly].

Ouch! You've been having fun taking shots at me on here lately. There'* nothing wrong with the GA, I am actually quite happy with mine thank you very much.
PJ.I think this has to do with the scratches from when you were rollerblading.
There were no scratches....dang it!!

The Aurora/Alero thing is kinda understandable. Aleros, 'Roras and Intrigues have a few features which make them look like they are in the same vein (much like the Grand Ams, Prixs and Bonnevilles-while not the same by any means, are in the same "family" of cars). Which, in truth, they are. Granted I think, of the group, Auroras and Bonnevilles stand out as different from their "siblings", but you have to remember not everyone knows or cares about the differences. Someone isn't sitting there saying "oh hey that'* a Grand Am" and assuming you have a four banger under there-if they don't know enough to know what kind of car it is, that means they don't know enough to know the difference and they aren't trying to slam you or your car.

Princess, there is a turbo kit for you're car. You do have the 2.4 L twin cam.

Anyways, yes people confuse my car for a Crown Vic all the time. My taillights are indentical. However, I don't drive a 16 second grandpa Crown Vic.

i would post a few pics of my lady on my bonne to show that ladies love 'em too, but then we'd have to change the post to "PG-13" ..so you know where to find 'em. LOL. At first when i show people my SSEi they are very skepticle..but after a ride and listening to me talk their heads off, they all love the bonn. The Supercharger, HUD, and 9-way seats really do a lot of persuading for un-knowledged people...but hell, that'* 1/8 of all the cool stuff, geez.. lol
