Default Bonneville on SPEED Channel!

1960 Bonneville on SPEED channel during My Classic Car. Our great grandfather is lookin' good...especially in red.

389 V8 engine...you could only get the 389 but there were 6 variations from economy to high performance.

The particular Bonneville in the show:
303hp (stock)
3965lbs

One good looking classic!

That was a fine collection of American Metal! Did you see when they were in the warehouse? That entire row was '60'* Bonnevilles! The left side were Poncho 850'*: the platform later became Bonneville.

Not necessarily, you have cars on there that could smoke a Bonneville any day of the week with ease... Supra build-ups, turbo Civics, etc etc
