I get that from time to time, then I correct them and it like "oh yeah Bonnevilles are cool"?

The best one I've gotten though was from a cute blonde at the gas pumps "is that one of those 4 door Corvettes?"

I don't know how someone could mistake a Grand Am from a Bonneville.. they look nothing alike! The new Grand Prix and the new Bonneville'* look similar, but once you get to the side and rear there is no mistaking them.

i could see how a normal, non-car enthusiast could mistake the two.


Being a Toyota Cressida enthusiast as well, there are plenty-a-time when Us Cressies are confuzzled for Camrys, and even Corollas. We can tell them apart. Non-enthusiasts can't always.

People don't get my car confused with a grand am, but alot of the time, I'll have people say something along the lines of "That looks just like that Buick Century I used to have" Even though they don't really look all that similar. Bah. I can tell the difference between those boxy imitators and my rounded bonne.

Ummm.... No. Most people hear about my car before I meet them. Many hear about mods and Kills too. Let'* just say I know better then to try and rob a bank in my car, There wouldn't be a search for me, It'd be a drive to my house.
