Default COTM question?

Is there a rule that the Car of the Month HAS to be a Bonnie?
Or can it be anything, as long as it either has a 3800 or, if older than the 3800, at least shares the platform with the Bonnie?
Could, for instance, a 3800 Grand Prix be COTM?
Or perhaps a Star Chief?
Not bitching, honestly want to know...


By the way, Congrats to dbeast!!

It'* normally for only Bonnies, since this is a Bonneville club.

Hrm.... never really thought about it.....
There are arguments for all sides.....
Basically it boils down to 3 schools of thought......



A)This is the 'Bonneville Club' so it should only be restricted to 'Bonnevilles' or 'Parisiennes' or 'Star Chiefs'.

B)Anything that shares the 3800 series (and now Northstar) engines should be considered. (would we have to backdate this for all previous engines?)

C)Any car from any member should be considered.


I'm going to lock this thread for now..... not to hide this topic or hope it goes away. But I'll open it up again mid-month.... just don't want to take any of the spotlight away from dbeast and Sapphire.
