Default Front Range W-owner, secretly considering converting

Hey all! Thought I'd introduce meself here. Some of yous guys may actually recognize me, but for the rest; here I am.

I currently own an '01 Impala LS. I've dreamed of owning a Bonne since I first sat in one when I was 8, and I think my chance has arrived. A dealership close to me has an '04 GXP with 2500 miles on it, and I'm seriously considering picking it up although it'll hurt to lose my Imp (and I'm sure the NAIOA guys will kick my ***!)

Anywho, I've been lurking for a while, immersing myself in the info and all the goodies you guys have to offer. I really like the site, and there'* a lot of good info here! Well I guess that'* it for now; I'll leave you guys with a mod list on my Imp:

Custom front grille | LS Sport taillight covers | Quad-Taillight mod | Gut'd airbox with GREEN performance filter | GMPP MagnaFlow mufflers | Mobil1 | Limited Edition MC SS 6-Gauge cluster
Oh, and there'* an L67 with -HD tranny in my garage. But you don't want it.

Welcome. If you do convert...it'* all cool. If you keep the imp and want to hang..we are a friendly bunch with some members that don't have bonne'*.

Like Fordboy
PrincessJeanne is a previous bonne owner
and others....

We also have a few members you might recognize from the impala boards.

Welcome to BC!

We don't insist that you have a Bonneville to belong, 'cause we're pretty sure you'll catch the fever once your here for a while, lol. It sounds like you already know your way around here, so come on in...the water'* fine...

Thanks for the welcomes!

If I do get this GXP, I hope to bring to the Bonneville what I have brought to the Imp. Over the past year, I've designed or helped with the design of many mods - some, like the quad taillights, had been thought about and attempted unsuccessfully many times over the life of the last-gen Impala. I've noticed that the GXP seems to be pretty much locked up as far as mods go; I hope to change some of this.

Yes, I'm overzealous.
