Eight years later, and the lines are still absolutely stunning. Beautiful color, beautiful car; definitely one of the most muscular-looking sedans of its time with the GXP-like refresh.

Of course, you knew how I'd feel about it. ;)

Such a shame you guys have to wear front plates, but then again, here comes the Bonneville again with one of the best front plate holder designs ever.

If you ever make a roadtrip to Florida, we need to do a side-by-side photoshoot.

:thumbsup:

Very nice, except you need to clean those bugs off! :P Only thing I don't like about that car is the headroom in the back seat. No front plates required here, for some reason the police are always behind us! :smilewide:

Actually I was in on a road-trip to Milwaukee last weekend. I just had a nice back-drop and took 'em. Fly if I ever come to Florida we will and have a Bon-abration! My son would just love you! The front Bonneville plate cover is in my sons room waxed and all on this wall! I just got my new rear Bonneville badge today in the mail because my chrome on my "V" was flecking off due to, too much waxing and then I wiped it with a rag quick and snagged the conner. It isn't bad but will get worse so I got a new one. That way someday when it is old it will get a new one. I just am being more careful around badging on all my cars. My wifes Impala has white wax in all the tight places, I use a tooth-pick on the SLE! Thanks for the kind words, it is a fine looking car, and the interior is just okay, but I bought it for the style, power and the 3800/dual exhaust tips. (I could have had a new SE for less!)

Impressive Bonneville. I almost considered one, but there are features I have the Bonneville does not. I was a fan of the exterior of the last Bonneville. Nice car indeed.

Nice ride, looks great! I think these Bonnevilles are going to be considered classics someday...they have a timeless look to them. Maybe you've mentioned this before, but I see you're a fellow Iowan as well. Gotta love this heat and humidity we've been having lately...thank god I just got my AC recharged!

Absolutely beautiful...I really believe the Bonneville is one of the sexiest full size cars GM has built in years...It was sad to see it go...

I couldn't agree more with the wise man above I really like. As the motor gets broken in now just a hair over 15,250 miles my fuel economy keeps getting better.

Nice colour.

The only thing that really ages this car is the greenhouse. The front and rear are still pretty fresh.

They will age very well I believe, just like my Impala did, something my Olds Delta 88 did not do so well with.

A pretty car, and unmistakably Pontiac, without being overwrought. :)
