Default First Time ever

Well it took a long time but I finally did it. I carded my first Bonneville last night. I was with Crystal and ran to my car, grabbed a card and left it in the drivers side widow above the handle. Of course she thought I was nuts, but I didn't care.

Kudos! You're lucky you have cards, man. Sadly, I probably will never get any, unless Andrew'* boss decides to let him do it again. I'm so jealous, because there are so many cars I've been wanting to card...

Don't worry my wife thinks I'm nuts when I card a Bonny.

My wife calls you guys my "Bonney Buddies". She thinks it'* funny that I talk so much about my car. She doesn't realize what help I am getting, in turn saving money..

Its at the point now that my obssesion with my car has rubbed off on both my gf and son. They point out Bonnes on the road when were out.

Carded two while at Bills and one on my own about 3 months ago.

Everytime I see a Bonne on the road though, I feel an urgent need to catch up and take a closer look
