Well let me just tell you, the what the **** look and the holy **** look on your face does not go away for several months, Not one day has passed where I have not thought about it.

It all seems like a dream. Far from reality.



Actually, EVERY time I've gotten into my car, I think about it. Its permanent, like a brain injury or (in my case) a nerve injury.

I have no pictures or posters in my bedroom, just the bonnevilleclub card. It may be there for a while, or until I die. It serves as a reminder to always put others interests and problems in front of yours, no matter whats happening in your own life, becuase someone is always going to be worseoff than you can ever be.

I'm still trying to find a way to pay it forward to everyone in the club, I'll figure out a way one of these days. Perhaps if I become a millionaire I will buy every active member a spare bonneville. I've always wanted to do that. My dream to fill up a city block with every year bonneville I could find may just be a dream, but instead of lining a block with cars, I'd have them shipped to everyone I could.
I wish I coulda helped out too or knew about this like everyone else, but was out of the loop as well

The fact that an internet car club of people that do not know each other can come together to the level this club does is just a foreign concept to me and I'm sure just about everyone else. Its a great thing really.

Imagine if the whole country or world was filled with bonnevilleclub people...just imagine. We'd be doomed.


I'm dying to know the details of how this whole thing was put together ..


Also, your ability to express feelings and emotions is significantly better than mine, I'm jealous.

Since most of us are busy with our jobs and stuff, we gotta live vicariously through guys like you Ben. Plus, I couldn't stand to see a beautiful white '97 SE (on steroids) go without.

We'll all be waiting for the day it gets "initiated". There will have to be a vid.
