Default You've Driven The Car, Now See The Movie

Yep! Their actually making a picture called "BONNEVILLE"

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0487195/

Plot Summary for Bonneville
When the life she knew suddenly changes, Arvilla Holden (Academy-Award Winner Jessica Lange) finds herself at an emotional crossroads. Hijacking her two best friends, Carol and Margene (Academy-Award Nominee Joan Allen and Academy-Award Winner Kathy Bates) she sets off in a vintage `66 Bonneville convertible across the great American West on what turns out to be the journey of a lifetime. BONNEVILLE is directed by Christopher Rowley with a script by Daniel Davis, and co-stars Tom Skerritt as a friendly trucker who becomes an unlikely suitor.


The picture below is NOT the car in the movie. But I would like to see the Blond that drives it (see license plate)

Talk to Boosty, SingsCountry and Sonoma about driving Bonnevilles through the American West. They made their own movies.

That would have been me making the video from the backseat of boosty'* car. Then again I did get some video while I was driving till Boosty woke up and took my camera away :(

I would have to say though that for my first time across the border, it was quite the experience.

Yeah, why couldn't it have been about a mis-understood rebel who realizes his identity on an internet forum and finds himself compelled to race at Bonneville salt flats in a maxed out S1 3800?

Oh, wait.....
