I don't even think I've ever seen a Bonne on TV...

Ever notice how you NEVER see Bonnes in movies either??? I always wonder why.

GM would be stupid not to put this whole line up in a TV spot.

Like Mazda with all their cars driving in a pattern, that would be neat to see.

No GXP Bonne, no GTO, not even an SSEi.
Just a GXP Grand Prix and they wouldn't even open the hood !

Most of the cars were open for the public to sit in and explore but this wasn't the case for Pontiac or many of the other GM exhibits.
Bureaucratic *** holes!
Hey the rest of the show got my adrenaline rushing.

I did see one interesting feature on the new Monte Carlo 3800 Series II engine. The front exhaust manifold incorporates a metal cover that covers the entire surface. It looks like it would bolt right on any 3800 front exhaust manifold. I priced it today at a staggering $92. Cdn !
I had really wanted to see the new Series III engine at the show. Maybe next year.
Actually the first 2004 GP just hit our lot yesterday. It had the new 3800 Series III under it'* hood too! But, sadly here in Canada, we will NOT be getting anymore Bonnevilles! Pontiac has decided to leave them by the wayside for the new GXP V8 which is half Bonneville & half GP. The GXP will be released in 2006 in Canada by GM and will offer an Aurora-like V8 FWD power plant under it'* hood. It will be a bitch to work on, but it will have some serious horses too.

I dunno Mista....I think the Grand Am and the GP look to much alike

The Bonneville stands out as the clear flagship car in the lineup

Perhaps if we send some fan mail to the Pontiac Head Honchos in reference to the lack of advertisement of the Bonneville, and turn the heat on as Boneville owner could start something to continue blowing those zoom zooms and make them zaaappp

Default hmmmmmmmmmm

well i have to say i am going to miss the centered fog lamps and cool ground FX on the SSEi . i was at the Minneapolis auto show.. they had everything expect the GTO and GXP. i lilke the new grand Prix, a grand am is so cheap and low class i won't even talk about that (same goes for sun fire) which now looks more like a saturn lol.. i did want to see the GTO, in the hopes id like it... i know that the drive train is awesome and it has balls, but OMG! to put the GTO name on something that looks like that,let alone imported from AUS with a single exuahst port! makes me sad... we have a 69 GTO and 68 GTO in out family now, " am i looking at a caviler? stratus? grand prix?" WHO KNOWS BAD PONTIAC BBAAAADDDDDD!!! lol

i was hoping that if i saw it i'd like it. lets hope that happens!

bah why can't Pontiac get some originality. I am starting to get dissapointed with them. Everything is looking the same. I love the bonneville cause it was the first to look like that and I would buy a new one in a second. The comment in an earlier post how the two (bonneville and grand prix) are twins is a great observation but that is exactly the problem when you drive down a street people should be going "damn thats a nice bonneville" not "is that a grand prix or a bonneville." Next what the hell is with the sunfire, I thought they were ugly before but now they definatly get a FUGLY rating. I mean come on take a look at it, Saturn called they said they want their front end back and the bonneville wants its back end back. The others look nice but the Sunfire is nothing but a POS.

Wow what a rant but seriously cars are all supposed to look different but when it comes down to you only being able to tell by the badging, then somethings wrong.
grrrr its frustrating to see a good company going in this direction
