There are bonneville'* everywhere here. I see on any given day 30-40 of them. Lol you can go to the Gary Highschool and look in the parking lot, and atleast half of it is filled with Bonneville'*.

Okay, then let me rephrase that. Why didn't you wait and see who it was?

I lost count at 50-60 in my area. I carded ALOT of them, but apparently they are all old people with no pcs.

There are some impressive numbers posted. Many around my area are driven by the older folks and its funny to see that some of them are Supercharged.

Tonight, on the way home from work, I saw two SSEi'* between exits. One was white and the other one was black. Both Series 2 In great condition.

My schedule here isn't giving me much free time to stop and hunt someone down.

To me, the Bonneville/other car ratio is about the same here as it is at home. Most of them at home seem to be driven by middle aged/older women.

I'm honestly suprised we don't have more MN members. They other owners are probabaly out fishing, y'knooooow.
Actually the majority of that movie was filmed in Faribault. And there are probably a couple thousand people in Wabasha/Kellog. The two go hand in hand as they are only like a half mile from each other. Yes I've spent many a summer vacations at my uncle'*, who lives in Wabasha, fishing/water skiing/tubing on the Mississippi
