Not sure if this should be in Your Ride since it'* NOT my ride but still...

Malta Days (the town, not the island) was this past weekend and it was a TON of fun. I thought you guys'd enjoy pictures of this:

This has GOT to rate in the top 10 of awesomest Bonnevilles I've ever seen. It belongs to Kishwaukee Community Hospital in DeKalb, IL.

I don't know that the original was a Bonnie, I think this one'* a repro. It'* the germbusters squad for that hospital.

I've seen the original :P . That Bonneville is way cooler, though, gotta love the old land-yachts.
