For the record, this is the car that accompanied the article. HELLS YES it's the car. (Even if that car is not a Maserati. And speaking of Ferrari's, how was I not aware that Ferrari is also in the business of building lightcycles? My inner TRON fangirl just geekgasmed.)

Edit of "it's not that I want to be RICH, it's just that I want to be able to rub up against this any time the mood strikes":

The love of a car may be the truest love there is, save maybe for the love of a dog for its person--and even there, there's a divide, because the love of a car proves that the car has been loved. A dog loves because dogs exist to love man. A car loves because man exists to love the car. -- From Tell Laura I Love Her by [livejournal.com profile] seanan_mcguire

HI HI HI Rose Marshall, you are totally relevant to my interests. :DDDD

If hitchhiking ghost stories told from the pov of the ghost (who can totally sense the spirits of the vehicles she hitches rides in *squeebounce*), are also relevant to your interests, you can read the Sparrow Hill Road stories here.

Seriously, as I was trying to get out of the grocery store parking lot, a line of at least a dozen* black and dark metallic grey Mercedes SUVs was wandering past. I have no idea where they came from, I have no idea where they were going, but I was stuck waiting for them to pass for a while. And then they were ahead of me until I turned off for home (they kept going north).

I see no other explanation than migratory behavior.

In other news, interaction with those outside of my dwircleflist bubble proceeds apace. There has been Drama, but as I was not directly involved I don't care. Still no killing. I am a v. good dragon.

Also, I believe I have ripped enough Beast Wars footage to make my Predacon "Jurassic Park" vid.

*Some may have already reached the signal and turned by the time I got there.

Okay, this would have been a much more suitable Knight Industries Three Thousand than the Mustang. Hell, I may have been thinking disloyal thoughts about the Knight Industries TWO Thousand.

Bright yellow is not a color a generation 3 Trans Am should be painted ever. DO NOT WANT

Watching Knight Rider, there are lots of things that bug me (damsel in distress of the week, anyone?), but which would really have pissed me off when I was a younger and less tolerant dragon. I'm okay with the pilot, but man, how did I make it past the first couple of episodes? (I actually remember debating whether I should just tape over "Bad Day at White Rock".)

Of course, the answer is the same as the answer to "how did I manage five seasons of Supernatural": focus on the car. The humans are irrelevant. The plot is irrelevant. Focus on the car.

I think there's a clue here on how to get me to watch more television, really. Or they could just make a show about awesome lesbians with superpowers (who drive awesome cars). But I think one is more likely than the other.

This post brought to you by the fact that Bossman has started suggesting shows I might like based on the kind of car the main character drives. ^__^

There is a teenage girl who goes to Bossman and Boss #1's church, who owns a cute little green Camaro convertible. She spends a lot of time over at their house (sometimes just visiting, sometimes doing odd jobs like filing and such), so I see the Camaro a lot, a situation to which I have no objection.

She also sometimes leaves the Camaro in their driveway, and goes off with her boyfriend in his vehicle. And I...I cannot wrap my head around leaving her Camaro behind to go off with her boyfriend.

Of course, the winner in my mental Camaro vs boyfriend competition does go a long way toward explaining why I'm single.

And now, I believe that has been replaced by "acquire at least two and possibly three generations of Firebird, and take them out to the Bonneville salt flats to play." (Possibly embellished by "invite internet peeps to come along and help wrangle cars" and "name one car Edward so there can be Team Edward shirts ^__^". Yes, I am strange.)

Here, have some car porn of a non-Pontiac persuasion, for a change: 'Cuda on the salt.

So, back when the first Transformers movie came out on DVD, I took one look at the car playing Jazz and emailed [livejournal.com profile] queenoftheskies. Our conversation went something like:

Me: What is Jazz? DO WANT!
[livejournal.com profile] queenoftheskies: [livejournal.com profile] manga_queen says it's a Solstice. They aren't making them any more.
Me: *sadface*

And I assumed, since 'Bee was a Camaro, that she meant a CHEVY Solstice, and thought no more of it beyond "Jazz is the sexiest thing in this movie".

Guess who found out this morning that the Solstice was made by Pontiac? *facepalm*

Also, because I love you all, here's a video of all the turbo boosts in the run of Knight Rider, set to speed metal. This is what I was looking for when a link that said 'Pontiac Solstice' caught my eye. )

Edit of "because I just thought of it": Last night when Bossman and I were talking about cars, he said, "I almost bought a '72 Ford Fairlane, but then I touched the gas and it went *phew* ::complete with 'zoom' hand gestures:: and I decided I couldn't afford the speeding tickets."

Is I can do things like send that Mustang vs Camaro link to Bossman, and it will result in him sitting in the back office, googling to find out what the car on Memphis Beat is. (It's a GTO. The car in the promo is a Chevelle, but the actual car in the show is a GTO.)

And in the course of googling, he discovered that the Hawaii Five-0 remake will apparently have a 2011 Mustang 5.0.

Which he spent, like, 45 minutes trying to find a picture of. We watched the show trailer, saw about two seconds of the side of a black car (at a really not good angle for identifying said car), and determined that yeah, that was probably as much of the Stang as we were going to see.

Good thing there weren't any customers the last hour tonight. *snerk*

Wandering aimlessly tonight, I hit the Popular Mechanics site. And right there at the bottom of the page was a Mustang vs Camaro speed test.

If you think I could resist clicking over...have you MET me? :D

I was...well, I admit I was disappointed with the outcome but, as the subject line demonstrates, it's entertainingly written.
