I am only 17, with a 95 SSE. I get a lot of mixed comments on it. Some really love it. I let one of my friends drive it around a bit, and he liked it. He drives a Sebring with a shitty 2.5 V6, so my car was a real wake up for him.

I get some bad comments on it too. One, of course, is people saying I drive a grandpa car. Some say it is too big also. Then there are the morons who can't justify themselves, and call my car "stupid", "gay", "car for losers", "pontiac sucks". **** like that.

They don't know what they are missing.

I think the only reason he keeps it, is because it'* a convertible.

What a lot of people forget is that Pontiac has been GM'* performance brand for years. The Bonnie was for the guy who had a family but still wanted some get up and go. This was also true of Grand Dad who still had a lead foot but didn't want to be seen as going through the mid-life crissis by driving a comaro or firebird to the golf club. We have gotten a car that has the ability to be sporty, but also able to get on the road and knock out that 1500 mile trip. It has been my expierience to run from Fort Worth Down to Houston, Texas with the crise set on 75mph and not only refuel once but watch the rpm gage drop as I flew down the highway,(from about 2500rpm down to about 1900rpm), yet have plenty of power to boot!

Anything pretty much. But I love to race Mustang V-6'* b/c they think just b/c their car is called a "MUSTANG" it'* fast. I've never been beaten by one yet(V-6 not V-. And the comment about people calling the Bonny'* grandmaw cars....they are just jealous and wish they had all the back seat room we have with our girls.

Anybody who bashes the Bonneville is just jealous. In high school my Bonneville was one of the nicest cars in the lot, people used to call it a "grandma-car" all the time. Funny, that grandma car never lost a single race to one of their little econoboxes. Anyway, I drive a little econobox now, and I can say to every teen with a Bonnie - you're a lucky kid. Mine took a ton of upkeep to it and guzzled gas, but it was one hell of a car. I still want to a get another in a couple years (a nice 99 SSEi with all the goodies )

Totally. Not to brag or anything, but I think I have the best car at my school, but nobody would think that since they've never driven it. Most people own Tempos and **** like that. There are a few daddy'* cars out there, like the Z28 and Trans Am, so I won't count them.
