Since 1958 or so, Pontiac has always had Euro flare styling appeal.
Americans may not have noticed the Euro accent, but I did. Having
spent a lot of time in Europe and racing as well, I became aware of the
influence that European stlying had on Pontiac Engineers.
Our Bonnies are a great example of this. Red gauges, ergo seating position
with bolsters in the right places, console, and swept styling both in and
out, makes for a great overall package.

The reliabilty of the the 3800 is legendary among people who know
engines.

What I really like about my Bonnie, is the fact that I DO NOT have to
order my parts from Europe but can drive a car with the Euro touch. :P

For the 91 LE I always liked the Old school body.... And they way they drove... They didn't feel so large as compared to the 95... But still big... So I had to have one...

The 91 SSE... What can I say.... I loved the 88-91 SSE'*... They were in a class all of their own... And they looked like nothing else GM had at the time, and with a factory body kit, I always wanted one when I was 13,14,15,16..... So um yeah I couldn't pass up the $100 beater SSE... Perfect project car... Love all of the toys in it too...

The 95 SE... I loved the color Burgundy on the outside and Graphite on the inside... And the test drive with the 3800 II left me with an OMG I didn't know a 3800 could do that in a full size car...lol

On my old 89...the colour and the suspension, life ends at F41.

On the 94, my favourite things are the boost gage and stock body kit...looks really good for a large car.

On my Aurora, the powertrain, the exhaust, the lighting, the wrap around dash, the Bonneville rims..lol and its overall head turning appeal.

the cockpit, everyone tells me who sits in the backseat that they feel like they are riding in either A: the batmobile
B: an airplane

and its fun when people ask what that gauge is doing moving all the time and asking if everything is ok

and yes, the seats are the best, thats the only thing i didnt love about my GTP were the seats, they werent bad, (cause the drivers was heated) but they were nowhere near as comfortable as the bonnie'*

The compliments on how comfortable the seats are, how other ppl look when it drives by, also the design some ppl think it'* newer than it is. I just love the sound of a piped 3800 and its power, finally how it can keep up to many 98 style GP GT'*....its great to beat two doors in a family car.
