Year and Trim: 2001 SSEi
I realize the traffic to the forum has severely dwindled in recent years. My request is almost purely selfish, though I can't even say with certainty it would play out as I intend. I've been a member here for a very long time and have had my 2001 SSEi nominated for COTM 3 or 4 times but have never received the accolade (despite tying twice in both March and April of 2014). I'll be making another post (likely in general chat) in the coming days to discuss the state of my car (yes, I still have it) and would like one more opportunity to throw my car into the ring before the opportunity is no longer available. Is this a reasonable request for a fair COTM in the year 2022?

Not that I have any authority in the matter but it makes sense to me.

Unfortunately, I'd say that opportunity is already gone. Look at the post history, we can go months without even having a new Your Ride thread.

We can say sure, you won June 2022 COTM, but without any competition where is the satisfaction in that? My suggestion is to post some good pics in any of the active Facebook groups, you'll get some honest feedback.

Honestly, the satisfaction would be more of a last hurrah than anything else since it's likely my car won't be around too much longer. But I understand if you feel there's no reason to do it, since I agree there is very little activity.

Go the FB group Pontiac Bonneville Club and post your pics. They still do COTM.
