On the way to the second-day check-up…

August 15, 2009 at 8:08 pm (Day to Day, My Mom, Phone Camera, Pictures, Random Images, Unusual) (, , , , , , , , , , )

I was sitting at a light. Big intersection. Waiting to turn. The medical building looming to the front left, a cemetery (?) front right, and houses to the side. Suburban residential. Life and death in four corners. And I’m just sitting there.  And I think to myself that the truck in front of me turning the opposite way looked so strange. I was tired. It was sunny (no specs, they just broke remember?, didn’t get the new ones yet.) It was hot. 90° and you start seeing stuff. I say to my mom, “That truck looks so strange.” She just agrees. It was so red and square and it had those safety cones hanging off the front…I took the picture…my mom says, “You’re so weird.”

Dodge Challenger 14 / Walking Advantage

July 30, 2009 at 5:38 pm (Dodge Challenger, Pictures) (, , , , , , , , , , )

While walking around to capture all those wonderful bench images you have been seeing and will continue to see for another week or so, we walked right past the Bettenhausen Dodge dealership. Across the street, they have more cars (and more benches), but one vehicle in particular caught my camera eye. Can you guess?

Is it cheating? I say no. We weren’t looking for the Challenger, the Challenger was there already, waiting for us.

Damn, I love this car.

Chevy Camaro. Trying to look cool…

July 24, 2009 at 11:30 am (Chevy Camaro, Dodge Nemesis, Phone Camera, Pictures) (, , , , , , , , )

Or as I like to refer to it: The Dodge Nemesis

Following me home on Tuesday night.

At the same time, Mason and I said, "What car is that??"

Picture time. It's 1 a.m. so we don't want to flash right into the guys window. But we're slightly crazy.

This is as flashy as I let Mason take the picture.

The required arty-looking-back-in-the-side-view-mirror shot. Buh-Bye!

It was a nice car. Very sleek looking, with nice wheels. Good color too! Not too flashy.

Heaven help me, I might actually be falling for it!

Dodge Challenger 7 Nightvision!

May 23, 2009 at 12:48 pm (Dodge Challenger) (, , , , , , , )

As you may have read earlier we were cruising thru the White Castle drive thru when I spotted this hot baby fueling up in the gas station parking lot right next door.

I saw the back of the car and then almost had a seizure yelling at the BF and trying to get the camera out of my purse at the same time so we could snap the pics.

The owner was extremely gracious, if not a little freaked out by me taking the pictures and shouting from the passenger side that I loved his car.

Pics are below. The BF got one on his cell phone camera and I got the other three with the digital.
