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.
your body sharing comparisons are WAY off man. Grand Am=aurora? What? They don't share a single part on them! Let me clear your list up for you
Grand AM-Alero
Cavlier-Sunfire
Bonneville-LeSabre-Riviera-Aurora
Aztek-Rendevous
Grand Prix-Regal-Impala-Intrigue-Monte Carlo

I only messed up the cars I don't like/.don't care about. Sorry. :(
I always get the Aurora/alero messed up just becuase of the name same with Park Avenue/ LeSabre. Park Ave is the big f-er.

If that is the truth, then Pontiac must have only sold about 1000 Bonnevilles last year. I know that a few members have GXP'*, but I have yet to see one that is not in captivity (on a dealer'* lot).

according to an article in the automotive section of this weeks issue of the local newspaper (a 2-page review of the Bonneville GXP) "Chrysler 300Cs are outselling Bonnys by about nine to one through the first half of this year"

I'm not surprised... sit in a 300C, look at the interior.

Sit in a (GXP) Bonneville, look at the interior.

While both aren't at the top of their game in terms of interior quality, Chrysler has this one, hands down. And the hemi. And RWD.

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?
anyone familiar with the TV commercial production business? What I'm wondering is, would the cars that do the drive-bys in this commercial all be scripted, i.e. would someone have actually selected the bonnie to appear, or would this be a real city street, real traffic, and a bonnie just happened by as they were filming?

No, wish I had, I think the problem is the GTO might not be available in Canada? so we don't get the commercials for it
