She has a 2000...new style.
When i said it'* downgrading to me, i wasn't talking about options. I was talking about "class" but if we want to pop some options/ comfort/ride into the equation...ok

I can mod mine all I want, and it won't even come close to touching a GTP, or even an '00 SSEi. I thought Heather'* was older than '00. Personally, if I had an '00 Bonnie, I'd be set for a decade...

Didn't know it was that model. Although those are smaller then the H body years right?n Their interior is very close between the GTP and SSEi style. Both laid out very much the same.

I didn't realize it was a 00+ either. I prefer our almost old school pre 99'* myself.

Bascially, the whole issue of this "debate" should come down to, you gotta drive what you like. I'm probably going to have a hard time if or when I ever have to replace the Bonne. Except for some Buicks and Caddy'*, the newer cars all look and feel too small for me. And I only buy trucks when I need 'em.

Befor she sells it, she needs to plaster it with Bonneville Club ads. Carve it into the dash, engrave the windshield, stuff like that...

More width in the bonnie. More width, more leg room. Not as shuishy (claustrophobia for me) nicer ride. I've driven GTPs before (can't believe i just admitted that) and it dosn't feel to have more umph than the bonnie.
Didn't we have a post about this before?? The difference was like .4 seconds or something stupid like that. That dosn't make the difference CRAZY fast. At least not to me
