That moment when

You walk out to your driveway and think dam that's a nice car temporarily blinded that its actually yours and the sudden epiphany when u remember its yours. Happened a little with my 35th anniversary slp. But I'm still physically stunned every morning I see the 1LE in the driveway.

Or how about that moment when you look at 2 sets of car keys, one for a 01 Saturn L200, One for a 2013 1LE. and know you should take the Saturn, but say F it and take the 1LE.

07 Silverado W/T here. It never gets driven except taking a dog to the vet. Which I did today. The ride up ok, dog was with me for company. The ride back, not ok, no XM, no flash drive, no roaring engine, couldn't do anything about Mustangs passing me, it was horrible.

That's funny. It is bad when you get caught doing it. My wife makes fun of me every time she catches me doing it.

A year and 4 months after I purchased my Camaro, I am still known to sit in the garage w/ a beer and think "I can't believe it's all mine!"
