Hi everyone. Been browsing this forum a little while, thought I would join up. I have owned several bonnevilles. Something about them that made me stick to Pontiacs ever since. 3800 engine is an unbelievable performer in all aspects, makes me wonder how Honda and Toyota ever got away with their torqueless 4 cyl that couldn't match the torque or economy of a good-old 3800... Currently I own a 2007 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP, and it is a torque-monster. Sweetest exhaust note you ever heard too...

Welcome to the forum . I was hanging out on the Pontiac website the other night and built me a 07 GXP, once I was done I wished I had the $30000 to buy it :( Post some pics in the "your ride" section of the forum so we can see her

Yeah, when I get some pics I'll post them. I really can't bring myself to change one thing on that car... it has the right rims, brakes, spoiler, cowling, etc...

I've been in Drayton Valley for 31 years... sheesh that seems like a long time... Red deer is a really nice city, good place for a meet. I don't think I'll make it though, too many things going on the next couple of months. I'm going to Dawson Creek to pick up a used chassis dyno that I just bought. (I am getting into tuning) And yes, I am a GM Tech. I also know member n/a white bonne personally. In fact, I think that I was one of the influences for him to buy a bonneville...

BTW, this is by far and away the friendliest forum I've been on! Kudos to the BC community!
