I believe (as in I can't think of anyone who wasn't, but I've been wrong before) that they were all previous bonneville owners. We tend to join up, and never go away

yeah,

first they kill the aurora and oldsmobile

now they're killing the Bonne

and we all know about that talk about killing Pontiac . . .

YOU AURORA drivers need to go drive TOYs or Hondas! And help our American car producers.

I definitely agree about the interiors. The Bonneville has a very snug, monochromatic, cave-like feel to it, which isn't helped by the cheap plastics used in the 92-99.
The Aurora and LSS are a lot more organic. I think the best interior award should go to the Park Ave. It has all the same design elements that make the Aurora and LSS so liveable, but with a lot more room all around.
The only thing I really envy about the Aurora and LSS is the stering wheel. The radio controls are much better integrated into the lines of the wheel. It'* a lot cleaner looking.

The "more power" side of the equation is a little questionable though. There'* much more aftermarket available for the L67 than there is for the Aurora V8.

Im starting to hate GM. What ever they do right, they stop doing it shortly after and screw up. Its almost like they want to hurt themselves.

nope...just too many employees that only count pennies and don't look at what the market wants and needs.

God I hope the GM top dogs all perish and are replaced with people with common sense.

Thats a noob alert post if I've ever seen one...lol

Scottydl, Physcho, Custom88, Valerka and I used to own 3800 powered cars....I'm sure there are a few more I am forgetting. I'm pretty sure my car acted as inspiration for a few new Aurora owners.

Besides, its a great car.

The interiors are the same plastics.. Just a different design.

The only stand out GM interiors IMO are The 04+ GTO, and basically all new for 05+ models. Hell they made the cobalt feel nicer then the C6 in some ways.

Check out these.... Impala, Monte Carlo, Cobalt, GTO.
