Default Monster Garage and a Bonne

I remember a few years ago Monday nights on the Discovery channel were filled with shows about bugs, babies, and buildings, and in no way was I going to stay home and watch that stuff. But now in days I find myself anticipating Monday nights. How can you go wrong with Monster House & Garage, and American Chipper! Anyone else watch these shows? How about a favorite episode? If a Bonne was to be on Monster Garage what would they do to it??? :P

it would be freaky to turn a bonneville into a semi tractor---pop the trunk and have a fifth wheel there. imagine the stares that a bonnie would get pulling a 40' semi trailer.

I watch all those shows. Sometimes sleep through the Monsters, but never miss American Chopper. I was trying to imagine a Bonneville inspired chopper today, but no luck. I guess that'* why I don't do that for a living...

What would Monster Garage do to a Bonneville you ask? I answer, full LS-6 motor/tranny swap...

I been doing a little thinking, and it would be cool if they turned one into a full out assault vehicle. Pop the trunk and SAM'* would be aimed upward, the back doors could be turned into suicide model doors and several automatic guns would be facing outward. Then if the car gets in a jam, push a button and the transmission drops out from underneath you and turns into a bomb. Like a warp core breach from Star Trek. Yeaa, Destruction!! Give the audience some of that American Bad ***!
