Just before I bought my Phaeton, I decided to take a final road trip with my 2004 Acura TSX. Truth be told, I miss the little guy. It was easy to park, had a perfect six-speed manual transmission, and was easy to park. For its last hurrah, I took it on Highway 50 in Nevada, the Loneliest Road In America.
For all you Hoons out there, I highly recommend the drive. Contrary to popular belief, it is not an infinite, straight, and flat stretch of road. There are a number of regularly spaced low mountain ranges. The scenery is spectacular and the entire time, I saw just one patrol car, and it was parked in one of the three small towns between South Lake Tahoe and Ely.
On the way home to California, we took a shortcut and spend the night in Winnemucca, on Interstate 80. The reason– the best lamb chops in the world at a Basque restaurant.
The morning after the meal, we left our motel and headed for the Interstate. However, I had to make a detour and stop when I saw the green Mark 6 Bonneville. And once there, I saw the burgundy Mark 8 Bonneville parked across the street.
I know next to nothing about these cars, other than the fact that I saw a lot more of them as a child. What do you know about these Bonnevilles, fellow Hoons?
