Not only that...but they respond a little too easily to cheap mods.

I can't wait until some of this sand is washed off the roads. Neeeeeeed traction!

Comfort is the deal for me. We use my wife'* import to bomb around locally because it'* very good on gas. But any trip over an hour has me reaching for my GXP keys. For 2 1/2 years I made a forgotten amount of trips to Cinncinati and back.(15?) 11 hours each way and so nice to have the comfort of driving the Bonneville.

Everyday I drive my Bonny, the more I enjoy it and the more I respect the comfort, ride and reliability.

Cool

lol me and my bonnie have a love/hate relationship

she loves to break parts, i hate to replace them, but it has to be done
i love to clean her, she hates to be clean, or maybe its just the roads are jealous
i love to hear the SC whine, she hates 4000 rpms, lol
i love crusin 90 down the highway, she hates being passed by ricers, dont we all

its give and take lol, but we all share in these i think
its wonderful having a great car

feel free to chime in on your love/hates hehe

I put about 100 miles a day on mine and haven't found anything to gripe. I love the power, comfort, stereo, and so far, the reliability. My sig other has even signed off on the thought of getting another one.
Blowing past a late model Benz on the freeway and watching dude behind the wheel trying to figure out if that really just happened is a total riot. That'* the juice!!!
