First of all, there is no need to use superlatives in this forum. I believe that we can all express ourselves without resorting to such language.

Secondly, you have perhalps the most customized Bonneville exterior on this site. I think Timsmooth comes in a very close second. My point is that it doesn't matter what they say, your car is an expression of you--and says anything BUT grandma'* car. I don't see how anyone could mistake your car for that.

Thirdly (is thirdly a word?), If they degrade your ride, race them or give them a balls-to-the-wall ride in your Bonnie. Many unsuspecting Bonneville deriders earn new respect for them once they have urinated in their pants while riding white-knuckled in the passenger seats. They see four doors and think, "gee, a grandma/grandpa car" or "what a slow greocery getter". They don't know any better because they can't afford to get one for themselves--and if they could, the mass media has brainwashed them into believing that they need a civic, neon, or some other techno scooter with an oversized wing, stickers, and NOS. We need to train them my friend.

Lastly, The Bonneville is your car. You may not have desired it before you purchased it, but now that you know what it is and what it can do, you take pride in it--as evidenced in your external customizing. As long as you are happy with it, who cares what the uneducated think?

What it boils down to is that they are jealous because your car looks so good, drives so well, and has so much more room than their rollerskates. Have fun eating rice crispys for breakfast!--and you can tell them that I said so!

Wow, that reminds me. This one time, this guy in a beefed up ford f-150, with huge tires on it, had the nerve to tell me that my "grandma called, and wants her car back" I got him back with a pretty good slam that shouldn't be said on the board. It resulted in him and 3 other vehicles following me in a 2 lane through town. At one point, they boxed me in , i just put it down, and cut in between them.... i got called in for wreckless drivin lol, cop just said go home. it was like 12:00 am

I was thinking about the younger crowd (we have at least one 12-year old member here). And since I am an old fart at 34 yrs old, I am pretty adept at voicing my concerns without using questionable language. I'm really not offended by it, but if you compare our club to say, clubGP, it is such a better atmosphere. ClubGP really shows the age of its members by the way they post--not that being that age is a bad thing--on the contrary! But when they (over at ClubGP) start posting in such a manner, it shows there futile attempt to be cool--but in reality it just shows how immature and uneducated they are. We at Bonnevilleclub are much better than that--yourselves included.

I know that there are differences in cultural acceptance for that language, but you won't hear it in a professional setting.

I am cool with pretty much everything. Just letting you know we do have younger people who read these forums. So take it easy with your choice of words.
