Just got home from Wal-Mart to get some misc stuff. I picked up some for sale signs for my 95 when I park it outside. The cashier was a 28-30yr old guy.

Him: Are you selling something?
Me: Ya...? (I'm thinking, no **** sherlock!)
Him: What are you selling?
Me: A car
Him: What kind of car?
Me: 95 Bonneville

*long pause*

Him: What'* a Bonneville?
Me: A 4-door Pontiac
Him: Oh
Me: Want to buy it? (jokingly)
Him: No (straightest face ever)




I wonder what he drives.

Too bad you didn't know what he drives. Could have said "Ya, that (insert his car here) out in the parking lot. What do you think I'll get?"

The world is full of geniuses. Maybe he likes you and was just trying to strike up a conversation

A Bonneville is an Old persons car.... You know slow( 14.xx-15.xx 1/4 Mile ) It has no Power( Black stripes in front of the Bonneville owners house for some unknown reason.... And if you ask the owner he or she will have no idea how they got there ).... Has 4 doors... you know the back two are for the kids as you are a Family man and have to have a family car( More than capeable of 129 Mph )..... They don't handle for crap as they have a grandpa like suspension( FE2 just incase you want to fly around the off ramp while the guy in the Grand Cherokee is trying to stay with you as he knows you can't outperform him in the handling department.... Meanwhile you look back to see him on 2 wheels )... The seats suck( 12 way power.... What more could you want... Some even have a But setting for warm or fire )..... But hey we all know Big cars don't handle, just look at the intrepid, now thats a car...( Pile of Junk, I'd kill myself if I was reduced to a Intrasludge 2.7 )....

Yeah I like My Bonnevilles
