I think it has been covered pretty well by everyone else, but I am very glad that you are still with us. My brother was in a T-Bone and almost died--still has residual affects from the closed head trauma--some eight years later. My grandmother died in that accident as a passenger. The MOTORHOME that hit them was just picked up from the dealer less than five miles up the road and the driver was seeing what it could do (65-70 mph). He struck my brother'* car on the driver'* side door. The driver'* side door post is what struck my grandmother (in the passenger seat) and killed her instantly. I still don't know who my brother survived.

Stay with the club, post pics, and keep in touch. Maybe you will buy another.

Tim

I've been there Kip. Glad to see you up and around. Take it easy....some symptoms take weeks to appear. May your Bonneville rest in peace for protecting you so well.

T-bones are usually the worst. Like Paulnoid said, thank god you weren't in a honda.

Glad to hear you are ok, and hope you have a successful recovery, from Drifter and I.

Whats all this, "Good luck you weren't in a honda," crap.

http://www.hwysafety.org/vehicle_rat.../html/0220.htm

http://www.euroncap.com/results.htm
No way to directly link to the honda on the ncap page put if you go to small family cars you can find the listing for the accord.

http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/NCAP/SList2.cfm

Pretty safe too me about equal to the bonne in all categories.

The new ones are good, but the old hondas were not as good as the bonnies for drivers.

You can't really compare a Civic to a Bonne since there is about a 1,000 lbs mass diffference.

You gotta compare a Accord to a bonne, about a 300 lbs difference in the bonne'* favor, or a civic to a sunfire.

http://www.hwysafety.org/vehicle_rat...html/95014.htm

Thats for the Sunfire.

I tried to do the side by side thing with a bonnie and honda and i couldn't....there were no hondas listed in the bonnie class :p hehe guess there'* no honda in the bonnie'* class hehe

on the other note, i can't speak for the other person who mentioned it was a good thing he wasn't in a honda, but i myself was referring to a civic.

I just revisited that site and was comparing bonneville to grand prix...bonneville is a "best pick" and has way better ratings than GP. Only 1 A (acceptable) for the Bonnie and 4 A'* for the GP all the rest were G'*...Good.
