I wish they had them here... LOL... Sticking with the Bonnevilles... If I ever decide to tow I'll get a Hitch and burn a tranny to death( Would be an excuse for a buildup ... LOL )...


I do feel that GM got away from what sold cars in years past... Hope they can get it back and start selling cars again...

I do Miss Olds.. I'm a bigger Pontiac Fan than Olds, but I always did like the LSS and LSS Supercharged... For me it was Pontiac, Olds and then the rest of GM... Just seems wrong with no Oldsmobile...

Oh well engough from me... Let the thread be on topic again

Look, it'* not flawless, but it'* an idea. We can fine tune it.
and i know just the man for the job...

Love the body style, not sure if I'd want mine to sit quite that low.

seriously though, Iknow it'* been mentioned before but GM needs to get on the ball with some product placement. Ford drops big bucks every year to make sure their vehicles get featured in the TV show 24. I'm not the type who would go buy an Expidition because I've seen Kiefer Sutherland tooling around in one, but you 've got to admit there are alot of people who are open to suggestionlike that.

ive noticed in general that there has been alot more ford comericals on tv lately. hopfuly Gm gets the drift that they need to advertise and get out of this slump. because there slowly fading away.( bonne discontinued, olds cut completly,) :(
