I like the fact that even though I own a "grandpa grocery getter" I fly past my friends camaro everytime!

Plus Its so nice when people are like... "You drive luxury?!?!"

I love the fact that people twice my age drive a broken down hunk of plastic, and I cruise up in true style.

Hrm... The thing that brought me back to the bonneville, besides the looks and the fact that it surprises many people, is the 9 way seats and leg room. Only car i can say I have been truely comfortable in. And now after this site, I've been bitten by the mod bug.

I like to break from the crowd of typical 18 year old punks w/ ricers or camaro'*. It'* also the sleeper factor. No one expects much from my car until they see my tail lights going down the track a helluva lot faster than their car....

im just addicted to speed, no matter hw much i try to lay off the gas if i just cant help myself from passing everyone around me. yet at the same time i love luxury features and dont want to pay higher insurance for a real luxury car or sports car, the bonnevile is pretty close to the perfect balance, just wish it was smaller

Bah, I want it longer! I want a Bonneville Limo!

I love the fact that Bonnevilles were designed as a hybrid of luxary and performance. I love it! It'* fun drowning out ricers while idling when they're getting on it (slight hyperbowl -slight (which, btw, I took my series 80 flowmaster off, sold it to a friend, and bought a series 40 ), and I LOVE "racing" ricers on the highway... they try to pass, but I make it obvious I'm not letting them do it easily...I let them slowly gain on me and then dust em!
