Its just a pet peeve I have when people come up and say.. thats a nice Grand Prix.. and I reply yea.. those are nice bus tickets and shoes you got.. oh ?? It'* a Honda?? Well.. it might as well be the same too..

What else have people mistaken your beloved Bonnie for?

To be honest though.. I don't know the difference between a Civic and an Accord ( other then they're always behind me and dead on the side of the road) I really don't know how they CAN mix them up either.. they have different tail lights and nose. SSE and SSEI has the distinct center fog lights ( not till recently now where everyone is copyin it ). 96+ have the mean eye brow look tailights that I can spot from miles away

Easiest way I found to tell from GP and GA is the size of the trunk.. GA have a short stubby butt trunk.. GP has room for junk in the trunk (literally)

That'* sort of surprising. I'm not one of those people who can tell what kind of car a person is driving from half a mile away, but Bonnes and Grand Ams don't look THAT much alike.
