Nothing like a Grand Prix engine in a Bonneville.

Bar none, best college car ever made. Not to mention it doesn't do too bad at autocross events

Nah... don't go hide. Grand Prix'* are great cars also. They are just geared a bit more toward the sporty end of things.

The SuperCharged GP is NICE. I've had one before and it was a blast to drive.

It'* kinda like a Bonny that got left in the dryer too long ..
