I am 20, with a 90 LE. I like my cars to look like pimp cars, I think the older bonnies look awesome. BTW the probe runs either a 2.2 DOHC w/ or w/out turbo. The turbo is very fast, because it is the same engine running 1st gen. MX6'*. The other is the wimpy 2.5 v6 which is garbage.

its honestly quite hard to power brake a front wheel drive car, especially one that is as well balanced as ours. I can usually do it if its raining or snowing.

The tranny in our cars is not really designed to do long, smoky burnouts...you're just as likely to burn out the differential instead. I've found that my '92 SE isn't prone to wheelspin, unless you powerbrake it. I've also heard that if you powerbrake it past a certain rpm that computer will yank the timing off-the-line...

My method involves revving it up real quick, and dumping the brake with my other foot... it will chirp the tires nicely, though nothing more.

I'm 19, I bought the Pontiac off my parents, I can understand how someone might think it was your parents' car. Almost all of the people I see driving Bonnevilles are either middleaged or older. Most of my friends drive beater Hondas, Toyotas, etc. My car is a welcome change. Most people mistake it for a more expensive car, it'* easy to work on and fairly powerful.

I doubt you will get an accurate reading on the average age of the Bonneville owner here, I'm guessing we are mostly young guys here on this site.

I'm 19, though, like the rest of you, I typically see older folks driving Bonnevilles.

I think the Bonneville is a nice car. Whenever anyone rides with me, they are always surprised that it has 115,000 miles on it. Are they expecting cars over 100,000 to be falling apart? My previous car, a 1986 Ford Thunderbird Turbocoupe, had 199,500 on the clock when I sold it. Take care of them, and cars will last forever.

Cheers,
Jeff

I'm 33 and most people tell me it is a Grandma and Grandpa car so I could see with you guys as young as you are having people ask if it your parents car. I wanted a Bonneville since the body change (I believe it was 1992) but could never afford one. Recently, I was looking at Bonneville'* and GTP'* and found you can pick up a Bonneville SSEi cheaper used than the GTP which shocked me. But I am glad because I wanted the Bonneville more.
