I dunno how well that would work in our cars lol.....we don't have the same giddy up as you lol
This lady doesn't exactly have a 6-pack abs with the ability to do a crunch during even an N/A Bonnie acceleration :P.
Ok....I have to do this to myself now.....LOL

Andrew...what did you do to her? Anyone who I've come across says Wow..a bonneville..those are really nice cars. Then they strap into the 6 point harness and say "uh..is this necessary?" Couple minutes later they are usually asking why the roll bars haven't been installed yet.

Agreed on both accounts. (at least that is what the Bimmer, 300z, and modded Ford Focus owners were probably saying on Saturday night, even though I was running/driving lousy. Only loss was to Jessie in his GP)

Bonnevilles kind of grow on you. Average person as much as I hate to say probably think a Tercel or something is a much cooler car. But who cares what people think. Just have pride in what you drive.

The best response that I could think of would be:

"Heh heh, yeah, right, it'* just a Bonneville "

Then go lay tire.

Just remember the look of surprise on the faces of the young kids in that hot car that are making fun of you on the highway, until you exert yourself. That look ........... just pure poetry.

You have a sleeper!!! Enjoy it. Don't begrudge the little people what they don;t understand, it may just very well be beyond them. Besides, as long as they are "just Bonneville'*", the price stays down!

Oh yeah, go find somewhere else to get your pics done.
