This is What Happens...

When all the boys who drove muscle cars in high school grow up and have the money to buy expensive cars.

You Should Drive a Ford Shelby Mustang Cobra

You have an extreme need for speed, even when you're not in a hurry.
And while your flying by, you don't want to look like every other car on the road!
What 2007 Car Should You Drive?

The funny thing about this is that I was just emailing with B about the 2007 concept cars today. For those of you who don't know, B is the guy I dated all through high school and for the first 2 years of college. I broke up with B to date Roundboy. But now we're friends. In high school, B drove a 1972 Camaro RS and it was be-yoo-ti-ful. I tell you - I LOVED.THAT.CAR. Anyway - are we all caught up now? Good.

So, I happened to see the Camaro Concept Car and emailed B to see what he thought of it. He fired back that he liked the Dodge Challenger much better. I thought he'd mistyped something because he was always a diehard Chevy guy. Then he sent me pictures. No wonder he loves it! It looks like every muscle car of the late 60s/early 70s. It sort of makes my heart go pitter patter too.
So there's something I'll bet 9 out of 10 of you didn't know about me...I have a soft spot for American cars that are nowhere close to fuel efficient but go really fast.

I'm with you on this one. Both the spouse and I did a little dance when we heard the Camaro is coming back. And not insanely priced like that T-Bird fiasco a few years back. I want one!
The good news is the new muscle cars, if they make it into production, will be so much more fuel efficient than their predecessors. That Camaro concept has a fuel system that cuts out sending gas to 4 cylinders when cruising along the highway. GM "claims" this 400 horsepower beast can get 30 mpg highway.


I prefer the Challenger concept as well. Why is it every time I graduate Ford comes out with a new Mustang. They tempt me.
