Not sure if a Bonne qualifies as an exotic, but geeze, the driver is lucky to be alive, no matter how well our cars take a hit!!

In 4 years here with over 7000 members, we have yet to see a serious injury. 95naSta'* was probably the worst. Even a member that wrecked at 130 walked away.

Outside this Forum, the only Bonneville death I'm aware of is the child that died when that plane went off the end of the runway into the intersection.

Slammed into an oak tree... It looks like it did more than that. It was at least rolling or began to roll when it hit the tree. That guy was lucky.

The only injury I sustained when I lost mine was PBSD... post bonneville stress disorder.

One can definatly say that GM got it "RIGHT" when they designed the Bonneville. That photo is yet another example of why I like big cars, and detest traveling in small cars.

And there was another where someone posted with pics that his brother died when driving his Bonnie, but I can't find it

That was a scam. We debunked it. She faked her own death for attention.
