Someone please enlighten me as to the white car curse...ps.. GREEN...that green color that every car of the decade was colored. (Which means most anything can hit me swap paint and be unnoticable)

Actually I hit a black blazer sorry no color swap :P .


Anyway it has been fortold for many millenia that a white bonneville at some point in its lifetime must be in a accident of some sort. Fender bender to totaled it happens to all white bonnevilles.


Count your blessings that your bonneville is green

I sure do...while the previous owner swears the car wasn't in any accidents I ask this question...by is the inside of the ps fender lighter green than the rest of the car and the turn signal bulb had overspray on it? Oh...and my SSEi doesn't have anything on the hoodliner either....hmmmm

Man I feel your pain, very little that'* worse than getting hit in a new car. Especially when some helpful soul signals you to go ahead and turn in front of them, and gets you hit!

I had some lovely jacka$$ cut me off in a white Lumina last night. Not a car in sight for a mile either way on the street we're both on, and I'm in the right lane, going just a little faster than he is. Just as I'm about to pass him, he cuts hard right while braking like a sumbitch, and doesn't bother even using a turn signal. Almost takes off my bumper, and STOPS with his butt sticking halfway out of a driveway!
And, of course he has the audacity to give ME the finger because I laid on the horn.

Fortunately, there was a cop sitting in the parking lot across the street, who came screaming over. The guy was at 4x the legal limit! He shouldn't even have been concious, much less behind the wheel. Thank all that'* holy that I got my brakes done when I did. If I'd still had the old brakes, I'd have left that Lumina as a white streak down the curb!(Not that his death/maiming/severe injury would have troubled me at all, drunk drivers deserve whatever they get, but it would have screwed up MY baby!)

Hey Goneville...


Got brakes?

Sure makes me wish these cars had disc brakes all around. the SHO has them, and will make you think twice about doing a "brake check"

Man I would have gotten out of the car to curse the guy out personlly. Funny though the woman in the Blazer kept saying a few choice words and all I could say was I'm sorry. Oh well I'm glad that your car is save and how does that car stop with those new brembo discs anyway?
