I think this is a BC member screwing around. That paintjob and rims, and you've got a picture of your car at a gas station? Looks like someone was sneaking around someone'* ghettoed out Bonneville and snapped a cell phone pic.

It'* an April Fool'* joke.



(I traced the IP)

Funny while it lasted, but the game'* up now to prevent it from getting nasty. Topics like this ALWAYS get nasty. In addition, we only allow ONE login per member, so when you're done with this, let us know and we'll delete this account.



****************************

Further explanation:

A Moderator asked why it was a big deal, so I'll explain a little more. Everyone knows here how nasty topics like this can get. It might not have been the best choice as an AFJ. The dual-logins is the bigger issue by far. Admins have deleted untold numbers of dual logins over the years. It'* a PITA to police it because we have to IP-check people to find them. It falsely skews our memberlist as well. Imagine how bad it would be if we didn't enforce this?

Now that this is confirmed, it'* hilarious how this green 13 sec 1993 Bonneville is in Oregon. Nice touch, random other BC member!

The not-so-nice-touch was using a banned Member'* ID (very similar screenname). Which is how I found this topic when I looked at the newest registered members.

Let'* use this one as an example so the Admins don't have to run around cleaning up a whole bunch of new users, ok?

Looks like he painted it with a box of spray cans.
