Default possible orlando sighting

so my fiance and i are enjoying our vacation. we went to orlando today (from daytona beach) and spent the day at Wonderworks, followed by dining at a nice japanese restaurant (Ming Court), and then we went to eat dessert. we went to a place called "Seasons 52" and ordered their dessert (it was $20, but worth it). at about 2:30pm

walking outside the restaurant, i notice a bonneville. a couple of things strike me immediately. this is the order i noticed them in

its a black 96-99 Bubblebutt.
not stock exhaust. chrome tips.
its an SSEi (bubblebutt?)
theres an SSEi badge above the center taillight applique.
a florida gators license plate (nancy noticed that, i wasnt looking but she cares)
and finally, the arrowhead is black, not red.
and stock wheels.

so who are you? i know i remember seeing pics of the car on here. i took a couple pics of the car, but they wont upload. some problem with the proprietary Sony Memory Stick Micro only fitting in a Memory Stick adapter, which we bought, but then it wont fit in the slot the computer has labelled "SD/MMC/SM/MS/MS-PRO/XD". annoying.

assuming it is a member. after searching, im questioning.

fyi.. you can stick those tiny memory cards into the slot without the adapter and they will work, HOWEVER, you will need a tweezers to get it out again

He'* a member here. I think Marik referred him, and isn't a very active member.

I've seen that car in passing, and it looked gooooooood.

EDIT: Y'know, we could have had a mini-meet

BTW.. on SSEi'* from 96-99 at a minimum the arrowhead matched the body color.

mini-meet had occurred to me too, but i thought it would be best for me not to suggest on our vacation that nancy come hang out with some people shes never met and listen to people talk about things she has no interest in.

and i dont have my bonneville. for shame, we flew this time.

i did suggest the possibility of having a meet next time we drive down (nancys mom lives here, so we come about every year), and she wasnt really opposed to it. so well see. it wasnt in the cards this time though

sounds like a completely stock car to me, except for the tips, but you dont have to be a member to have tips.

the SSEi badge above the center taillight applique is stock, along with the black arrowhead like Bill said.

I dont recall this member
