Default Washing my Bonneville

Just a quick bit of interest. Last night, I took my Bonneville to the local spray (do-it-yourself) car wash. This car wash has about 8 bays. When I arrived, there was only one other person there...and guess what...he had a Bonneville. Must be, Bonneville owners really love to keep their cars clean. So, of course, I pulled into the bay right next to him. When I finished, I happened to look on the floor, and there was an emblem that had come off another car...it read "Bonneville". (No, it wasn't from my car, I checked) What a coincidence.

Odd coincidence. What year and model Bonnie did he have?

The other Bonneville was a silver 2000+ SLE or SSE. (Mine is 2004 SE). I left the emblem there, just in case the person who lost it came back looking for it. So, someone else can get the "sign" to buy a Bonneville.

that is REALLY weird since the 2000+ SLE/SSEi body style only has Pontiac or Bonneville or both depending on the year moulded into the bumper.......there is no emblem on the trunk like the SE

the only emblems are the door badges on the SLE/SSEi

Default not his emblem

Sorry...You must have misunderstood me. The bay next to me was where the other guy that was there with the SLE/SSE was washing his car. I pulled into the bay next to him, and that is where I found the emblem on the floor, from another Bonneville owner (sad one, missing his/her emblem). Sorry for the confusion on my "story".
