So, the question is.... do I get one?

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.....

YES...get one!

If you can swing it money-wise and not put yourself into debt you can't afford, I say go for it. I'm looking forward to going cruising with my son in the back...if your son will get a kick outta it, I say it's worth it. It's a heck of a car. Even the V6 is a lot of car for the money (and is decent on gas too). Support the economy! (also the tax on it is tax-deductable...as part of the "economic stimulus package"). I should be a salesman.

But no, you don't need to grow back your mullet.

I'll tell you, if I was in your sons shoes, I would be overly happy if my dad brought home "Bumblebee". While your kids get older, if you get them into cars, they will definitely have a very high respect for that vehicle that would be in your driveway.

I could only imagine if I was that age and my father bought one, I would feel like the coolest kid in my school. Haha
