16 right here. Bought it off a 90 year old with 111,000 miles who kept it meticulous. Yes, I agree with everyone; most people think it'* an old person'* car but they don't know a good car when they see one. I have a 94 SE with a CAI and I could beat 90% of the cars in my Junior parking lot at my high school. I mean, come on! Yeah, uummmmm, let me take your 91 ford probe with a (I don't know) 1.2 liter over my 3800. I'll leave you in the dust. Now I'm cool.

21 here, had the bonny since 1992 when my dad bought it, and i got it in 97. (guess i was 16 1/2 then)

Most think its an old person car, but they all love the HUD, 12 way seats, inflator in the trunk, and my system (not stock )

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 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.

19 here! Sounds good to not be alone driving a car that is usually seen with older people behind the wheel. But I also have a friend with a Crown Victoria and met some of his friends. So I have met people who have the same image problem we get. But good to hear that other people see the potential of the Bonneville.
