Well... to be honest, when they changed the body style for the Bonnie in '00, I had a hard time at first distinguishing the Bonneville and the Grand Am. I'm sure that most people who aren't enthusiasts probably get confused easily, after all, all GM cars look the same!

a lot according to the few who just knew they were right that is as bad (maybe even worse line up wise even mentioning PA and Century in the same sentece ) at least the GP is fairly close to the top end of the Pontiac line.

I've given up on people, they have no idea what the car is, so, I just say thanks, and blast away. Take the compliment and roll

Well the Intrigues look a lot like the 95-99 Auroras. A lot more than the 00+ Auroras do. Go figure.

IMO, the GPs don't look like Bonnevilles, but for some reason everyone else who doesn't drive a Bonneville thinks they do.

My son works part time at Valvoline. I stopped in one night to drop something off to him. I parked next to his black '99 Grand Prix, when one of his coworkers walks out and says "Wow...you guys have the same car!" I don't want him working on it!
