I feel that driving a Bonneville (or any pontiac for that matter) is a way of life. When i drive my SSEi on the roads i feel a sense of pride. I'm supporting General Motors, Pontiac, and my country. I can guarantee i've passed a lot of people on the highway and definitely had them confused on what the hell was passing them. But when they see Pontiac on the back and they hear those flowmasters roarin', i feel that my job is complete Hopefully the G8 is a car we can all take some pride in also.. lots of changes going on up there in MI.

I'm proud I drive a Llamaville.... what can I say? I mean it does reflect my personality with my stereo... other than that... nah. I'm just not into cars all that much. It reflects the I don't care how it looks because it'* better than your circuit city trash aspect.... just ugly, brute, and imtimidating power of exposed audio wiring in the trunk....

*manly growls*

lol

I really cant explain it. People look at me and say, whoa you drive that? Then as it sinks in they say you know now that I think of it that car really fits you.

Everyone says I drive all these weird a$$ cars but for some reason I always seem to make them quick. Also that I drive them with alot of pride...I call that MY AMERICAN PRIDE!

I just dont see what'* so weird about an 84 cutty, 2000 Alero, 1996 Cutty and now 99 Bonneville. I guess its because they are not "popular" in the youth segment of the ME TOO cars. aka civic, mustang, subie, cavalier etc...

I love the fact as we've said many times before, Nothing is better than having a person with little car syndrome pulling next to you and them watching the big sedan pull away from them
