Yea, I got an ego knowing that riding around in a Bonneville is a hella lot better than riding around in a stinkin' Taurus, or even a Honda or Toyota with their squealing engines. In a Honda you hear VREEEEEEEE!!! as the engine is struggling to keep up the same pace a Bonneville in the next lane could be doing the same acceleration but with the engine making a lovely and soothing Vooooooom.....

So yea, I got an ego cus I know I drive one of the best. Not THE BEST, but one of the best cars you can own for the best bang for your buck.

Must of been modded. They're not that quick because of weight. My ego was starting to settle a bit till my ricer cousin told me to get a "real sports car". Funny thing is hes never even sat in my car. So, yea i'm back at it tearing up the road again.

For the whole story, go here.

I don't know about the 8.1L but our 5.3L silverado has some good pickup for a truck definately..

as for the ego thing, I don't really have that unless the person is driving too slow then I have to pass them.

Could be that the 8.1L Big Block was modded, I don't know for sure, I saw no signs of modding, there was no large diameter exhaust, the tip looked factory, hell, the whole truck looked stock.

I love the Bonneville and I get a massive ego trip every time I drive it, I even attempted to race Camaro Z28s, Trans Ams. What a Idiot (Me)

I have to be honest. I didn't get an ego about my car until I got the GTP. The Bonnie was a nice car, but wasn't anything to brag about on a performance level. It'* the boost that does it for me...

I had an ego problem until a GTP killed me "at the track"

or when the grandma in a regal gs cut me off to get on an onramp, and I was WOT.



but yes when I had the SSEi I had a serious problem not leaving behind parts of my tires when a ricer reved his 4 banger.


I will stop talking because I am getting into dangerous territory.

Yeah, the 5.3 and the 8.1 oh don't forget the 6.0 V8 are remarkable engines, they're good and strong. Wonder if I could shoehorn a 8.1L V8 in my Bville? Yup, a Regal GS and a GTP can be killers but I recently challenged my cousin with his Jetta turbo (that'* in a other thread) to the drag strip. Wait until spring to find out which one is better. Hope my ego doesn't deflate if I do get beat.
