As people climb out of Wave, various cars drive past. I'm sure the last car to drive by is a 96-99 bonnie

Anyone else seen this?
yeah, I've seen it.

There are endless examples of "sister models" over the years, identical cars (with a few asthetic differences) that cross manufacturer boundaries. It'* kind of sad in a way that designs can't be more original, and have to feed directly off of one another... all about minimizing production costs, I suppose. GM is notorious for this, God love 'em.

The most interesting car-sibling-relationship IMO are the nearly-identical Chevrolet Trailblazer and Isuzu Ascender.

And you know what? Both cars are Korea-based. The Le Mans (such a DISGRACE TO THE NAME) was Kia-based (though I must admit, Kia'* pulled themselves into shape after Hyundai bought them out), and the Pontiac Wave/Chevy Aveo/Suzuki Swift, as well as the Chevy Epica/Suzuki Verona are Daewoo-based. Yuck. GM uses THESE cars for their "American Revolution"? Hardly American


Funny how GM shares the Envoy with the Isuzu Ascender, and Honda shared the Isuzu Rodeo through their Honda Passport - each pair is practically identical with minimal changes, like badges or grilles. Man, does the Rodeo/Passport'* 3.2L V6 haul *** though, it'* WAY better on the butt dyno than me LN3.

And Saturn'* Vue borrows from the Acura MDX/Honda Pilot with the 3.5L 250hp V6. Not a bad thing, the Vue seriously hauls *** over the 3.0L unit that was previously in there.

I've seen that one and yes, it is very cool! I really like the GXP'* especially.

I know it wasn't a commercial but,I saw the front end of a 92-94 green Bonnie on a station break on the weather channel last night.

*COUGH* Don't tell me you're just now noticing that GM does body sharing! They've done it since. . . .since. . . forever.
Firbird/Trans Am-Camaro
Grand Am-Aurora
Bonneville-Impala-Regal-Park Avenue
Asstech-Rendezvois

Oh yeah, and it'll probly be another 1-2 years before we see that in America. (YEESSSSS!)
Does make you wonder though. . . what if GM hadn't killed Geo. 2005 Geo Metro? 2005 Geo Aveo?

Personally, Aveo looks like a blatent attack on the Focus. They made an even cuter, even cheaper, even girlier compact so they can **** on Ford'* parade IMO.
