I must admit, when i was 16, I bought my First Bonneville SSEi (93)
I LOVED IT hands down, would take alot to feel that excited about any other car ever again. The car was 10 years old, and was what I wanted, leather, all the goodies, and Supercharged...
Still addicted to my other 93 that i bought last year

15? What'* the driving age there?
16. I have my permit. Dad bought me a car to fix up, bought me another cause he thought I'd like it, sold both of them. Gave me his old pickup, I bought another pickup, then bought the Bonnie. So I've owned 5, still have 3.

Its never too early for a Bonne, just as long as its cared for, and not RICED

Well I bought my First SC bonnie at 19....well that was last summer lol but still it is a LOT of power, that one DID NOT LAST LONG well mostly becuase the previous owner'* true neglect of the car but I also would be seen leaving rubber at random intersections around town.

I am on my way to another one though, odd becuase most people my age want a civic or (well in the rockies it is a giant redneck truck) I will be honest I want a big cummins on 33s..and will get one but not for a few years.

It'* interesting. When I got my license I fixed up the old pickup in the yard and drove it. By far it was the fastest vehicle in the driveway, however I knew I didn't have money to burn tires off an things like that. I was a very responsible 16yr old.

I waited until I was older and could afford the speeding tickets

If your son is putting himself through Embry-Riddle, I commend him greatly!! My brother is there (Daytona campus) and, although the best school for aviation, is not cheap whatsoever.

Back on topic, a N/A Bonnie is probably the best college car to have, especially if he has to tote all of his stuff to school or home twice a year.
And besides, no girl in her right mind can resist the power and beauty of the Bonnie :P .

I've had my 93 when I was 16. My mom was nice enough to give it to me, reasoning was that the Ford Tarus was an old junk and she didnt want me stranded with a broken down car so she gave me the better one instead. I guess im a lucky sonofagun, but I was careful with it nevertheless. It also lacked a serious tune-up so I could never really explit its full power anyway.

So if you are worried about speed, find a NA bonnie that is badly in need of a tune-up and dont let him make it go faster like what I eventually did. :P

As a youngin who got his bonneville as his first car, I can tell you that the power and size of the car will most likely lead your son to respect it (as it did for me). Since I got this car it has been in increasingly better condition then how I got it. I'm sure someone as responsible as your son can handle the supercharged car, and it will probably make an enthusiast out of him. Just keep it in the [Pontiac] family.

Its Grand Marquis BTW. As far as it beating a Ser 2 L67 from a 30mph roll. Hmmm.. maybe stock but not with you're mods. The engine may have been big but not even close to the effiiciency of todays motors. Plus the car is a BOAT.
