There are so many Bonnes around here that most poeple see another granny car and don't think twice.

Since I tinted, put on shiney rims and exhaust tips..I get more attention. There'* just so many B'ville that no one pays attention until they hear something odd trying to come out from under the hood.

I haven't noticed if people are actually staring at the badge, I'm sure it happens though. But in my neighborhood my car in general gets a lot of stares, especially on my own street. I got the same attention with my last Bonneville, but that was more flashy, and had some pretty attention-grabbing license plates. lol
