Hey I was looking around on Google and I came across a car survey website and there was a comment that just blew me away because I immediately thought he was a massive IDIOT.

He said "Not a car for someone taller than 5 foot, 10 inches tall."

WTF, I'm 6'5 and I have so much room left, it'* not even funny, the back seat is cavernous.

Have you ever heard any other dumbass comments about the Bonneville?

That'* perfect, the more people make stupid comments like that, the more that others might come to think such about these cars. Works to my advantage when I go to pick up my next one. Resale value? I don't care, I drive it till it falls apart.

So what if old people drive them? (and theres a bunch in my area that do). Mayby old people have a better taste in cars than the younger ones. :P

Cadillac was considered an old man'* car, now everybody is driving them.

It depends... the seat cushion is pretty tall - I haven't formally checked (I'm only 5'8"), but I wouldn't be surprised if taller 87-91 owners had some issues.

But then again, most of my power seat functions *don't* work (fore/aft works, up/down only for passenger), the seat is set pretty high.

Granted, old people are often seen in Bonnies around here in my areas. But that shouldn't define the Bonnie as a old fart'* car. Buicks are generally known as grandpa'* car and lets leave it at that.

Pontiac= For people whose minds still work
Buick=For senile people

THe 2000+ have a bit less headroom, especially with the sunroof. I believe it takes away about 2 inches. When I first got mine, I had to get used to my head brushing the headliner. It never got very close to it on the '93. I've adjusted how I sit in it (yes, the power seat is all the way down) and don't really notice it anymore. I'm 6'1".
