...my Wife in a 2010 Camaro.

Rented one for her birthday, she's gonna flip. Got her a pedicure and other spa girly stuff for tomorrow and I'll be dropping her off at her salon. Then pick her up two hours later in the Camaro.

Question. Should I be mean and put a big bow on it?

Toying with the idea of taking it to the track and letting her have a crack at it since she didn't get to race her Regal when we were there last. Looks like general NHRA rules say 13.99 and slower and you don't need a helmet and can have a passenger. I don't think if she goes down the 1320 that she'll be on it like crazy so I think it just might be crazy enough to work. If not and she is faster than 13.99 then she gets one run in and a memory to last a lifetime.

Either way I'll be documenting her reacting with pics and vidz.

Stay tuned!

From beginning to the sad, sad end.

Makeshift bow since I couldn't find a big one in the middle of August.


Happy Birthday!


Stopped at a friend's house to let the dog out.


Night time cruising (LOVE these gauges).


Ran it through the carwash the next day.


Quick Photoshoot.



Toughguy pose.


Supermodel.


What a lucky guy.


Time to fill 'er up and take 'er back ):


Working on the vidz!

She doesn't look too happy at the end.
I guess you'll be buying one, soon!

Yeah, in her words, "It was hard enough to go back to driving my car (supercharged 3.8), it's gonna be REALLY hard for you to go back to your truck!"

She's spoiled I tell ya. She's also been quoted as saying (before the Camaro), "I can never go back to a normal car. My next car has to be supercharged or turbo."

My reply?

"ORRRR a big V8!"
