About

You won't see this every day! 3 Liquid Silver Bonneville's in one driveway. We really get a lot of looks from the neighbors and folks that drive by.

I have 3 kids and we wanted them to be in a save good handling car that gets great milage. You really can not beat the Bonneville for this. They have side airbags, ABS Brakes, Traction Control and the SLE models have every creature comfort you can imagine.

We ended up with all silver really becasue we like the Dark Pewter interior color and that is mainly in the silver cars.

The trio has recently been broken up though as my oldest son moved out to Los Angeles, CA. So now only 2 of them are in our driveway. We drove his out to California. 2, 044 miles. It used only 73 galons of Gas to make that trip and we drove most of it at 79mph. The seats were amazingly comfortable and the handling in the Mountains was great.

These really are the last of the true Wide Track Pontiac's. Everything after the Bonneville was a much narrower car.
