The wait is finally over, Greg got his new Camaro convertible on Saturday. He drove it most of the way home with the top down, but some gray clouds on the horizon made him stop and put the top up and according to him it was a good thing, as he just made it into his garage before the skies opened up.
The photo above is a simulation of Greg’s new car because he has decided not to drive it in the rain and it has been raining a lot around here lately (actually he did drive it to work yesterday, but I forgot to take a picture.) I may totally explain the blue glove later, but it was for something similar to last year’s great roach kidnapping caper. The car is painted a sharp looking orange metal flake with black stripes and the interior is black leather with orange inserts. Not my cup of tea, but God bless the individuals who buy cars that outrageous.
I heard Greg on the phone to his wife on Tuesday afternoon telling her how much fun it was to drive, but the car hadn’t told him its name yet. He did say it was definitely a she though. I haven’t told Greg that I have a name for his car and it is Jackie O. This is not a reference to JFK’s widow, but a reference to the car’s color scheme and it is short for Jackie-O-Lantern.
