When you think about owners and their cars it kind of makes sense.

If thats true what does that make us Bonneville drivers?

Opinion post people nothing serious

Its a reflection on your vaules and what you hold dear to you... The Bonneville is kind-a like apple pie, rock n roll and cheese bugers and fries... Its so Americana and with a classical sence of style and comfort with tradition the Bonneville is a statment and is saying alot about you before you open your mouth! SUPERSIZE IT PLEASE! Thats what the Bonneville is all about! God I love this country!

Can it get any better than driving down the road in a Bonneville and passing those forigen cars, and the drivers saying what is that... Oh its a Bonneville, what someone laughs at (Bonnevilles) I love! It is just such a wonderful full size, American road trip car, why would you want an Avalon?

Good point. Avalons are the worse looking cars. Actually all of toyotas are. I dont like one car in that entire line. Lexus included. I just cant understand why people pay $50k for a Box on wheels (LS430) when they can have a Jaguar *-Type R for only 4 or 5 grand more. God.

Im sure people say WTF is that when i pass them too.

The GS400 has more power, handles better then a Bonneville... Also has common options for the mid-large luxury oriented segment, things such as HID headlamps.

What about an Audi A6?

In my opinion, those cars just say "I'm willing to pay too much money, for too little gain and some shiney baubles"
