Default Aurora in Minneapolis

Hi all, I found this sight from a guy (haro-something) w/ a bonneville that joined over at http://aurorah.proboards47.com/index.cgi?

The Aurora is black with dark tint but otherwise stock, just passed 90K, she needs a new paint job and could use some shocks, but otherwise stock. Is this a G-platform? Otherwise, I didn't know these supercharged 3.8s are so damn fast!! It seems like running mid-low 14'* is rather easy. As much as I love the V8 power of the Aurora (and that sound!!!) I might look for a supercharged Riviera for a nice luxo-sleeper...

Nice to be a part of your community!

To answer your question, yes, the 2000+ Bonnie(and LeSabre) share the G-body platform that went under the 00+ Rora.
The 95+ Riviera and 97+ Park Avenue also use the G-body, but have more differences in the frame.

The LeSabre and Bonnie, however, are still listed by GM as H-bodies though. It gets a little confusing around 97, because the 97+Park Ave is G-based, but still called the C-body. Then everything just goes nuts.

Welcome to the club.

Yes they are. They still have the H-body designation, but if you put your 00+ on a lift beside my 98 PA, the frame is almost identical, just streched a little here and there on the PA. Same goes for the 00+ Rora and 00+ Lesabre. GM changed the actual platform, but kept the same body designations the same. The Riviera and first-gen Rora have bigger differences because they are the first generation of G-body, where-as changes were made to the platform when it was put under the PA, and those changes carried over to the 00+ Bonnie, LeSabre, and Rora.

One of these days, someone needs to get a techinfo article written up on this, it crops up too often.
