Default Nice Car!

So today at work (i work at mickey-d'*) I was working the drive through window, and a guy came through, and pointed to my bonneville and asked if it was my car, i said yes.
He says, "That is an awesome car! I've been sitting here in the drive through just admiring it. Very clean, nice looking car" Its the first real comments i've got from just a random person. It was pretty sweet.
It made me feel good to drive it, and its nice to know some people out there like the same kind of cars we do here.

Sweet!

The most I've got from someone semi random (Sortof a friend, more like i just knew who he was from school, and somehow I ended up being his ride home one day) was "Geeze driving this car is like controlling a space ship!"
I'll take that as a compliment, I like my buttons, gages, HUD, and the "Runway" (Digital Compas)

Oh and a Mechanic once told me he liked my white rims.

Its always cool to get comments from people out of the blue.

Haha, reminds me of the guy who asked about my car (93) and he thought I was kidding when I said it was a 93. It all started with him looking at it and trying to figure out what it was (it was freshly detailed at the time, and looking quite gorgeous if i do say so myself ). He couldn't tell because it was backed up against a wall or curb with a hill or something like that and the only place it says BONNEVILLE is on the back bumper of course.

Needless to say, he loved it, claiming he'd never seen one in that condition before and said he really wanted one. Told him about the club, not sure if he ever joined.

OR the time I went to Matthew'* Tire and Auto to see how much they'd charge to remove the locking lugs (stripped out), he asked the year and model, and i told him, so hes like, alright, lets go take a look...so we go outside and theres only my car parked right outside the front door on the street and he'* like, where are you parked. another one who didn't believe it was a 93. I believe the word "gorgeous" was used in reference.

Too bad it has those disgrace wheels on it.

Bonnevilles are a dime a dozen in that region of Wisconsin as well.

HMM, speaking of nice bonnevilles, theres a NICE 92-95 always parked in front of the local just brakes, might just have to wobble by there and recruit a, i mean umm, get a brake quote.

Your car does look good for the age. My mechanic always smiles when I bring mine in. Then I remind him "I need it back in the same condition" He'* young!
