New Wheels

What's usually the first big purchase of a new college graduate who's landed their first salary job?

Why, a su-weet new ride, of course!

Remember your first brand-spankin' new set of wheels? 

It was time for Son No. 1 for sure.  He's old car was beat up.  Over 100,000 miles racked up from almost 5 years worth of trips back and forth from Delaware to North Carolina.  It was used when we got for him when he was a junior in high school, so it was certainly time for something new.

Well, that, and he couldn't let his little bro, Son No. 2, get one up on him.  Remember when I blogged here about Son No. 2 totaling his car ~ The Red Dragon as he fondly referred to his Monte Carlo.  

Last spring he scored himself the Bumblebee Camaro.  If you've seen the Transformers movies, you know what I'm talking about. 

After driving Son No. 2's ride around a bit while home on Thanksgiving break this past fall, Son No. 1 fell in love with the it, and knew he had to have one of his own.

Son No. 2 even found and purchased tire valve stem covers with a Transformer Autobot face on them!

I'll admit, Camaros are fun and exciting to drive.  
I've tooled around in both ;o)

Even Hubby's slightly entertaining the thought of trading in his Cadillac CTS for one.  
We all know what that might be about . . . ;o)  hehe

Thanks for visiting!

Fun! Those are all great looking cars. Love that they brought the Camaro back and it still looks like a Camaro only better. And your family has all the cars we want at our husband wants to get a CTS and I know my son and daughter for that matter would be thrilled with a Camaro each. So what are you driving Carla...I am sure it's something I would like for myself. :)

Cool cars, both of them, Carla! I have fond memories of Camaros. My first real car that I took a loan out for was a used Camaro; brown with tan leather interior. I LOVED that car. I think it was 5 years old when I bought it, but it looked like new.

First car - how fun! And congrats! That's wonderful.

Your Bumblebee is looking very spiffy! The cars are all nice, but there's something pretty special about the first car, right? It might have some flaws, but there's always the fact that it would be your first car that makes it extra special.
