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.
