Default Saw a 40th SSEi

I was checking to see how rare an SSEi 40th was.
I passed one the other day and then he passed me. He looked back and nodded. I gave him a wave with my hand up off the steering wheel.
My wife thought that was a touching moment She thinks its funny

It looked stock except for the amber light stuck to his trunk lid. (He must work construction)

She just gave me one of these looks...

Keep spreading the Bonneville love.

While I only have an SSE, it is nice to have something a little different like the 40th badges. Sets the car apart a bit.

The wife always comments on my rubber-necking when we're out and a Bonneville goes by.... Of course, it could be the fact that I usually say "B-O-N-N-E-V-I-L-L-E" that tips her off to this.....
