Default The next Bonneville? Or G8?

Okay I have seen spy photos from China on the forums here some place and they say there are testing one with a new high feature V6. Is this true? Could they show it this year with a Park Aveune replacment? Or I am dreaming?

Will they be showing it next year? 05-06 Auto Shows? They better, and it better be called the Bonneville! PE had an article on how stupid they are throwing names with heritage out the window! (They could come around and listen) Hopefult thinking... Will it be RWD or FWD? Anyone know? If its FWD it could be an Avalon killer (wahoo) or if its RWD it could be a 300C/Charger R/T killer! Any details or pics please post them here! I have got to see them! Get it back in time for its 40th anni! Long live the Bonne!

It will NOT be called the Bonneville. Are you that out of date?

If it'* worth it, someone should buy a G8 and slap some Bonne badges on it


For some reason, this idea just made me remember "Rear Steer"..... "Hey guys, lookit what I got" *snicker, snciker*...
