Now 35 and married with two children and another on the way, my priorities sure have changed over the years. At my crazy teenage days I was the stereotypical guy, mullet and all (what the heck was I thinking) who liked the Camaro. I owned a 1979, it wasn’t in the best shape and thinking back it drove like a tank, but I sure was a proud. At the time I couldn’t wait to own the 1990 Camaro Iroc-Z.
Over the years I’d lost interest in the Camaro… and my hair (huge improvement from the mullet
). Honestly, I didn’t like the Camaro at all anymore, nor any of its competitors. Although the new design mustang in 04/05 wasn’t bad to look at. Even with the new Mustang I still didn’t have any thoughts of owning any sports car. I was quite happy driving my corollas, civics and the odd truck to haul the toys (4wheelers, boats, dirt bikes etc).
Then I saw the movie Transformers. I remember sitting on the couch with my 6 years old boy watching this and saying “Daddy will own one of these someday”. Did a few Google’s and at the time there really wasn’t any word if this was going to be a production car.
Well, couple years later and here it is…. a car with really sharp looks that I can afford. I’m not going to grow my mullet back (even if I could). Actually, this car doesn’t even remind me of the era days of mullets, tight jeans and a cigarette hanging from your mouth. This is something new with awesome looks in a new era.
May not be very smart, but I sure do want one.....
