Default Slow Bonnevilles

I am assuming that mostly everyone here hates those slow drivers out there as much as I do, and especially the ones that drive slow in the fast lanes.

It is not uncommon when I see a Bonneville, with an old man or woman inside of it. I do know that it is a popular car for the older folk, but I think if they should own a car like that, they shouldn't drive it slow. I was following one today on the way to get my sister a birthday present. It was a 2000 or so SE. Very nice looking. I decide to just stay behind it. Once he took off from the light, I realize that he is one of those slow drivers, going about 40 in a zone where the common speed is 50 and the speed limit is 45. It is just very irritating to see people like that, especially in a car that I admire very much. And that is not the only case. I see tons of old people driving these cars, clogging up traffic with their feather feet on the pedal.

It'* a lost cause to fight, I know, but I can't stand it.

I drive mines on tha slower side, I like to cruse. Speed'n only occurs when I got that hype stuff on, ya know like Lil Joh, 3-6 mafia, music like that, A lot of people drive their bonnes slow around here cause they're meant to be seen in and admierd, not blurred and furious! I enjoy watchin old people drive.............

I too hate slow people driving in the passing lane.. I agree with Mista that Bonnies aren't meant to be driven blurred and fast as if trying to break the sound barrier.. but NOT Civic I think I can I think I can slow either..

Burgundy Boat and I think the same.. speed signs are suggested slow speed.. and why do the cops give you a ticket for going fast? Simple.. cause you were caught doing it.. hahaha..
