Default Are you a true Bonneville lover?

Ok, now i have to know....

If you had the money to abuy just about any car you would like. What would you buy?

A new car or a Bonneville?

I would probably buy 1 of the following cars in ranking order...or them ALL!!!

1. BMW M5 (undecided color)
2. Pontiac GTO (Blue)
3. Dodge Charger SRT-8 (orange)
4. Chrysler 300 SRT-8 (black or silver)
5. Dodge Magnum SRT-8 (black)
6. Pontiac Grand Prix GXP (any color)
7. Cadillac STS-V (silver or black)
8. Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren (silver)
9. 2005 Pontiac Bonneville GXP (midnight blue) (in addition to any of the above) (just because)

So lets see what your favorite cars are...in ranking order..of course...

I would convert my Bonne into one rare ride!! I would swap out the 3800 to a V8 and convert the whole drivetrain. I would have special parts made custom just to do that. Next I would get rid of all the exterior moulding and have all straight lines. Then I would have the whole intierior done in Suede.

When I'm done, I would have a nice Pro Street Sleeper!!

i think alot of people would do something to that effect...i would like to take a 88-91 gen SSE and drop that 303 hp GP GXP in there...now that engine is hotttt....swap out pretty much everything but keep mostly stock...besides that killer powerplant....wooh! im drooling....

i already have a big resoration plan for a 88-91 SSE...it will happen..someday...
