First "wow" moment with my car from a kid

At the gas station the other day A kid saw me pull in and then saw the transformers logo, and just couldn't stop talking about seeing bumblebee in real life! I told him if he wanted he could have his pic taken beside the car and well his eyes went... totally awesome moment imo!

I don't have a Transformer's edition; but I still love the reactions from kids. They're by far the most awestruck looks... it certainly bumps my permagrin up a notch...

For real fun ride along side of or behind a school bus after school get out...

Kids have a better eye for what kind of car it is then most adults, its great. I see kids yelling and pointing Camaro all the time. Then some 35 year old guy will walk up and say that is a bad ass Charger. lol

I had to smile at the School Bus post. Last week I was passing a School bus on the interstate and every kid on the bus moved over to the side I was passing on to look...they all started waving. It was nice.

I was washing the car in the driveway last week. Young kid, maybe 8 or so was riding his bike down the street talking on his cell phone. He stopped at the end of the driveway and said "MOM ! ! ! there's a guy here washing a Bumblebee".

You should have told him to watch out for those evil Decepticon mustangs.

I have a cute story involving kids and my yellow Camaro. I may have posted it in the past but for those that missed it, here it is again:

It was Saturday morning and my two 6 year old nephews were playing a game of T-ball in their little league play. So they wanted me to go see them play. I woke up early that Saturday, hopped in my Camaro and drove to the park. I drove on the side of the field looking for parking, when their game came to a halt. Every single little kid went to the fence facing the street where I was trying to park and they all started screaming at the top of their lungs....."BUMBLEBEE, BUMBLEBEE, BUMBLEBEE" over and over and over until I went into the stands and sat. All eyes were on my car and myself. LoL I felt like a celebrity I must say. And that's my story.

My little nephew did the same thing. My mom pulled up with him and i saw his jaw drop and go WOOOOOOOOWWWW. I asked if he wanted to ride to the house with me and he FREAKED out jumping up and down screaming. I buckled him up and he looked at me with the most serious look and said "back this puppy up and go for it." I couldnt stop laughing.

Cool how much the car appeals to a REAL young generation lol

Tells me one thing: in 20, 30, even 40 years, this car will still be desirable.

Kids(and to a lesser extent the teachers) are always talking about and pointing at the Camaro when I pick up my daughter(7 years old)from school. One day I heard a little boy say to my daughter "Don't take the Camaro for granted"...lol That was funny.
Another day a boy said to her "ooh you have a Camaro"

I get the same thing picking my 7 year old son up from school. The kids all freak out...bumblebee, bumblebee. It's definitly funny to watch their reactions. The other day I had a minivan roll up next to me at a light, the mom rolled down the back window and there was a little boy about 4 or 5 years old laughing and giving me a thumbs up .

I remember picking up my little brother up after school once, and all the elementary school kids were awestruck.

Hah, awesome thread!

My first kid moment was when I pulled into a Sonic Drive-In on a Saturday afternoon. There was a Little League baseball team eating at the tables. This is what happened.

I pull in.

Kids all go "Whoa!!!!"

One kid goes "Mom! Mom! That's Bumblebee!"

Kid runs over to look at it. I wave at him.

"That thing is wicked!"

Mom leads said kid back to his table. Hah.

I work at a Middle School so you can only imagine the looks and comments I get from the kids. I've also had my car since last Spring.

We have a ton of kid's in our area that are huge Transformer Fan's (heck I'm one myself). Even though mine won't be the Transformers Edition, I'm sure it will catch some of the kid's eyes when I bring it home.

I was driving my car through a small country town last weekend and rolled up slowly to a stop light. A little boy about 8 years old came out of a building across the street. He looked up, saw my car, and stopped to stare. His eyes got very big and his mouth dropped open. He looked stunned. After a couple of seconds he raised his hand and waved. When I waved back he grinned really big as the light turned green and I drove away. I think this must have been a "Transformers Moment."
