The official website for Bonneville can be found here.
[Bonneville[/i] is based on a script by screenwriter Daniel D. Davis.
There were 3 cars used in the movie. A pristine model used in the close up movie shots; a 'workhorse' that may not have been in pristine condition but that was used as the working model in most of the movie; and a 'tear apart' model -- one placed on a flatbed and pulled down the highway when in motion and one in which a door or the trunk or the windshield could be easily removed to allow for easy and close access for a camera angle. The car was then auctioned off for charity!
Screenwriter Dan Davis based the three main characters on real women from his life (his grandmother, aunt and a close family friend), and he grew up Mormon in a little town near Pocatello, Idaho. Here's what he says in the film's Press Notes: The inspiration for the principal characters came from my own life my grandmother, Arvilla, my Aunt Carol and Margene Criddle, a close family friend. My grandmother was quite a few years younger than my grandfather. When he died, she seemed to lose her sense of purpose and interest in life... BONNEVILLE came from my desire for a happier ending, one where grief gives way to the realization that another life full of adventure and discovery lies ahead.
