Default Content with my bonneville

SO driving around in the rain and the dark running mundane errands I had a feeling of content. Seeing people on the side of the highway disabled and hazards on. It'* a very good feeling to know my car is a rock. Friends poke fun at me for all the prevetive maintenance and fixing my parts as soon as they fail (so it doesn't stress the other parts). Asking why do I put so much effort in that boat. Even my dad coming by when I'm the driveway saying why would I do any mods it'* not a V8 or a gto it'* a shitting V6. You know what they can eat there own words. Nice to be driving in a dry warm car then out on the road rain on my back trying to trouble shooting my car. I love my bonneville and thats that.

Don't see many Bonnevilles on the side of the road, do you? Wonder why?

The only things that take a Bonneville to the side of the road are red and blue flashing lights, or "minor set backs".

I agree! Except this one time in D.C, I didn't get pulled over. The ticket "followed" my car to the mailbox.

I hate those stupid cameras. I've never gotten a ticket off one, but I always think I'm going to. I have one right in front of my house that will getcha if you don't make a complete stop before turning right on red.
