Default I saw my first 40th Anniversary Edition today

I saw the Bonne as I was pulling into the gas station. It was sharp and well cared for.
A very light gold color, a bra, and aftermarket rims that looked great (to me) on the car.
He spotted me oogling over his car at about the same time.

I wanted it, but he was talking on his cellphone so I went inside hoping he'd be off before I finished but he wasn't. No chance to ask him if he'd part with his beauty. I oogled a little more and then started to back out when and thats when I spotted th 40th Ann. badge. SWEET!

There were about 7000 cars in 1997 badged with the 40th emblems. You'll see more.

I thought I saw in another thread that there were only like 526 40th Ann Editions made...

And Nope, No Cards and I won't get any until I get a Bonne. It just wouldn't feel right walking up to a someone and promoting BC when I'm driving an F150 or an Olds 98...LOL

and 93-SSE, I wasn't going to interrupt someone talking on a callphone during primetime when he'* already looking at me like I'm a whacko for staring at his car.
and beside, my first comment would have been ' Would you sell me this car?' hehehe.
