Drove it home, had most of the neighbors over for an "approval of the purchase party".

Then pried those crappy trim rings off of it once everyone left.

Took my girlfriend to dinner and a University of Hawaii volleyball game. On the way home from that I had tricked out gen 4 pull up along side me on the freeway right before my exit. He kept surging forward and dropping back. So I droppped it into 3rd gear and floored it from 70 mph. The permagrin started at that moment.

The next morning I put my CAI in and my neighbor who owns a 2011 vert stopped by to introduce himself. Evey time we see each other we stop and chat about our mods now. His wife hates me because he keeps getting ideas for his car from me

Almost always when I buy a car, I take my wife with me to talk things over with. She doesn't care what I buy but it is nice to have her there to bounce off my thoughts.

I said that to say this - first thing I did was drive it home and show it to the wife and kids. She had an idea I was looking but didn't know I was actually going to buy that evening.

My 2010 we picked it up on December 31st 2009, drove it around a little while then took it home before the New Years parties started.
Our 2012 we picked up from Rodgers Chevrolet on June 18, 2012 then drove to Indianapolis, Indiana then to Bowling Green, Kentucky then to Nashville, Tennessee then home, about 600 miles in 3 days.

Bought it in KC, flew up with 12 and 10 Y.O. daughters. Stopped a few miles from the dealer for Ribs and Brisket. Then started driving back to DF/W while staying under 80 (per the owners manual). Within 20 minutes I had two daughters asleep, and no sounds but the rumble of the engine and the rain.

Broke it in.

The coolest thing I have done with a brand new car was with my '07 Solstice GXP. I had just got it, my first new car. I drove out of the lot, shifted up through the gears and turned on the radio. The first song that came on was AC/DC, doing "down payment blues".

Drove it to a remote area and did multiple 1/4 mile runs to break it in properly.

I took ownership at about 9:40pm about a month and half ago then drove around town for a bit and then headed down towards the Hoover dam. I went across the bypass bridge because of the lack of traffic and I wanted to open her up just a little. Then I drove to one of the lake mead overlooks and took the road around lake mead home.

I jumped for joy at buying my first real new car...carefully drove it home and parked it in the garage, for two months because there was still too much snow on the ground to safely drive it...
