Default Green SSEi

Everyday, I notice this greenish SSEi parked next to a tornado magnet(trailer) which happens to have a yard that closely resembles a trash heap. Ya know, broken cars, old trailers, garbage, refrigerators etc. This car is actually the best looking thing on the property! Except for the rear bumper. Looks like a St. Bernard took a bite out of it. Now, who wants to join my crusade to go in and rescue that car
I would like to stop and ask the owner if he would mind donating it to the FNNB or Foundation for Mistreated and Neglected Bonnevilles. , but I cant park my truck on the side of the highway(18 wheeler). What are your thoughts guys?

Only 2 hours away. Bingo is only 1 hour away. I'n my world of transportation, its just a stones throw away, or around the corner.

But, yea, something needs to be done here. I have to see that poor car sitting their everyday. I just hope the owner is not a member here. Then again, he might see this thread and do something about it.

yes, I am near elmira. and if the car is cheap enough, I have a truck and trailer that can get it home. PM me the location of it. My relatives are all in elmira/horseheads so I got a place I can store it until I could get to it... and also a reason to go there.

Would be nice to have another car in june.

Tell ya the truth, I'm not sure its for sale or not. I do see it moved now and then. Driveway anyway. I was just commenting on the idea earlier that it could use a better owner. It can be seen from Rte 13 just South of Alpine and Rte 224.
Sorry if I got anyone aroused at the idea that this car could be for sale.
