I had a 97 Grand Prix brochure stating that the Military say that and wanted there technology back. That is true that they had it first and for 2 decades or 2 1/2 decades know.

Simply put, the Bonneville doesn't cater to the car magazines' tastes. The praises they do make about our cars are practically the reasons we own Bonnevilles.

I find the body lines on the Bonnevilles very appealing. I've also been told that my 94 Bonne is a old persons car, but usually by ppl who are driving Crown Vics....

Like any company wanting to make a profit, the car magazines cater to the crowd that has the most following by consumers with disposable income. This equates to all the 18-25 year olds buying cheap imports and 50+ whose nests have become empty and they are looking to spend large sums on higher end luxury cars.

Thumbs up for the first head up display

In the 1960s ARL developed the world’* first flight-worthy ground-referenced Head Up Display (which projects flight and mission information on the aircraft’* windscreen), beating the Sperry Company into the air by two weeks, and also being the first into print. Virtually every combat aircraft in the world now carries a ground-referenced Head Up Display.

Mainly older people buy Bonneville'* (couples for the most part) and they don't have exciting styling....until 2000. Then it all changed and the car finally got the sport appeal it needed since 1992.

But why do I like it? The engine; supercharged or not, and I'm just into big cars for some reason. I'm not into feeling every little pebble on the road in a Civic or a Cavalier...its that ride that keeps me driving.

I bought my first Bonneville because my commute to work was 50 minutes one way and I wanted a comfortable ride. The 95 Bonneville gave me a comfortable ride and as the years went on it became very dependable. When the time came to replace the car I looked at other cars but the Bonneville won out because I knew it would be dependable and there is a lot of room in the trunk for long trips. The quality ride goes without saying. The 2004 rides a lot nicer that the 95 did.
