Default What do you like most about you Bonneville?

I want to do a poll to see what everyone likes the most about their Bonneville. Now I know many people do like more than one thing, so feel free to explain what you like and only use the poll to choose what you like the absolute most.

I picked performance. Don't make fun of my L36. It may be n/a but it does pull hard. Remember, the SE was pretty much faster than anything of its size and oh it'* the king of passing cars while remaining naturally aspriated plus it'* the fastest car I've owned and the first one to go over 100 mph.

First: price. Got a great deal on the '04

Second: quality. 36K miles and no issues to speak of... the car is starting to grow on me

Appearance is what snagged me. I love the looks of the 00-03 SLE and SSEI'*

the comfort got me second....

The durability/reliability won me over last, but not least. After seeing the wrecks these babies have withstood...and the driver'* all walking away unharmed... that is priceless.

A comfortable car that can go over 300k miles and still look good, IDK why everyone doesn't have one :P
