Who is addicted to their car....I know I am

So this past weekend I didn't get to drive my car much. The wife and I had just to much stuff going on and we used the other one to do the hualing of the kid and shopping stuff.

Last night I realized that I only drove the Camaro for about 20 minutes on Saturday and as I was getting ready for bed I felt as though I was going threw a withdrawl...It was the wierdest thing ever, I couldn't stop thinking about being behind the wheel and turning up my AC/DC CD.

I have a feeling I'm either completely nuts, or this car has taken control of my brain....

Anyone else have the addicted feeling to the Camaro or have I just lost it and need a shrink now...

I know I am ... I have a 5 mile commute each way, so if I just drove to work and back, I would be at 200 miles a month. I am averaging 1,000 !!! So something 's up. Even at 13.5 mpg, I have no issues driving just for the fun of it.... hear the music, rumble of the V8, teaching G37 owners a little something about torque

Well, since I've had my Camaro, I LOVE my daily commute-35 miles one way! Before I got her, it just got on my nerves, seemed like I'd NEVER get to the office...NOW it seems like I get there too soon!!!

I go for a drive every night for about an hour. And now the weather is getting cooler and you can really feel the difference going through the gears ...

I am so addicted it's pathetic. I'm constantly on this forum like it's my new facebook. Always google searching something related to it. I even get excited about going to work (not to be mistaken for being at work). Seriously, I find myself going in my garage for nothing more than to just look at my car. Oh boy if my hubby knew that he'd think I was psycho.

...............and other than being of the opposite gender.......DITTO.

..............and whats really funny/strange is I traded my beloved beautiful Corvette in on Casper, the affair I was having with it pales in comparision to the feelings the Gen5 brings to the surface.

My wife understands........I think

well I'm glad I'm not the only one! I tell the Ms. I'm going to get milk and bread and show up 3 hours later because of "road construction" She totaly understands why but she gets mad at me because she didn't come with me.
