BLACK94SSEi is on a distinguished road
Default Double take

So im on the way back from making the companies daily bank deposits and I walk by this brand new Hotel thats right next to my building. I had to wait for a second to see if it wasnt boosty paying a surprise visit. It had CT plates.

It was a CLEAN CLEAN SSEi and I wish it was MINE!! An older guy stepped out. I never really realized how many older folks drive these cars.

That MAY be personalized. Can't tell what the digits are. But it'* a CT plate with a lighthouse on the left. We have a few different kinds of plates here.


Yes WJC, and right now Boosty has his torque stars on.

Yeah, and I'm supposed to know that. What happened to his swoopies? Are those his summer tires?

And are you sure that car is black? It looks like something identical to sapphire instead.

Yeah, his chromes are sleeping for the winter.

Tough to say from the pics if it is black or not. Tony will know. But since that "Sapphire" blue is so rare, I'm guessing it'* black.

No I didnt card him. Cards were in my car and Valet was taking the Bonne to park it. The plates were custom, but I dont even remember what they said. I saw the bald spot and thought it could be boosty but then the chromies gave it away that it wasnt (He Hee)

It was indeed black and the funny thing is, ever since buying my car and joining the club, I find myself stopping in my tracks to take a look at other Bonnes that are either driving or parked.

The parked ones get carded, the ones that are driving get a drive by with a slight nod of approval that were somehow connected by our Bonnes.

"spotting Bonnevilles is almost like a sport of some kind"
