Arrow July 2011 COTM Duel

This was a pretty quiet month for nominations. Only two cars got nominated, so it looks like this month'* Car of the Month contest is a duel! Up for grabs is a beautiful profile badge, a reserved parking space at the Car of the Year contest, and for the owner, a minimum of thirty days' worth of bragging rights.

Will you vote for Bville_GXP'* 2005 Pontiac Bonneville GXP?


Or will you vote for L79'* Corvette?


Gentlemen, start your engines. Ten paces, turn, and don't backfire. One… two…*three…

Well, that was the toughest decision I made all day. Two awesome cars that really deserve to win. Good luck to both

Only on the former Bonneville Forum could someone nominate a Corvette for a car contest, especially a great one like L79'*, and have it lose.

Congratulations to Bville_GXP on a successful duel, and we'll see you at the next Car of the Year contest!

I want a recount.

It was a hard choice, both cars totally rock. I love the Vette, but I admit the Bonneville is a real looker.

I was honestly expecting it to be a lot closer than it was. Congrats to Bville_GXP though.
