i never used to pay attention to cars. they were merely receptacles for people, pets and my cosmetics case to get around in. then i fell in love–
i bought my car, a 350z with a chromillusion finish, from a kid in naperville. dude was holding back the tears when i gave him the cash. of course, anybody would feel that way saying goodbye to this sweet ride. but it takes a lot of tender loving care. only the finest handwash for this baby!
now that i’m pretty much living out of my car, i really appreciate it all the more. the past several saturdays i’ve been taking my sweetass car to shows.
people who are just as in lust with their cars gather together to ogle each other’s rides. my car is not technically a supercar. in fact, it’s a cheap ride that has a fancy paint job. but the folks at supercar saturdays and v12 automotive have invited me to the bannockburn show on this coming saturday!
generally, car shows are a guy thing. but my friend carolyn quinn is coming in and we will be the thelma and louise of the joint. minus the finale–
a friend, a true friend, might just be willing to hold your hand in the toughest times. thank you carolyn and thank you to all my friends!
