Chevy is a sponsor of this thing in Chicago.

They had a silver Camaro sitting on the expo floor.

I asked if I could sit in it.

Not only did they say yes, they said there was one outside THAT I COULD DRIVE.

The Dude Magnet.

And it was yellow.

So I did.

(turn up the sound to hear the car, squeals of ecstasy optional.)

In the time it took you to watch that Cody simultaneously seethed with jealousy, beamed with pride, rolled his eyes and cringed with fear.

(Oh, and in other news I won stuff, basically got President Obama’s phone number, cried, may have single handedly solved America’s sucky healthcare system with Loralee, cried some more, danced, won some more stuff, had a vibrator thrown at me by a table full of bawling women, spoke on the most amazing panel to ever be at BlogHer that thing in Chicago ever which resulted in some more crying. = GOOD DAY.)


  1. Fun!

  2. I can’t wait to hear more and more and more about BlogHer!

    I know someone selling a ’95 Camaro…

  3. oh that is so awesome! You sure look good behind the wheel 🙂

    Hope you’re having a blast!!

  4. That = awesome. Glad you’re having fun! I’ll see you next year in the Big Apple!!!

  5. How awesome!

    It sounds like you’re having a great time. When vibrators are thrown at you, you know it can’t be bad.

  6. Do your tights match the car?

    Those are some lucky, yellow tights!

  20. you have NO idea how jealous i am right now…my love of muscle cars and the sounds they make sometimes makes me think i should have been born a man

  21. Dood I can’t wait to hear it all!

  22. I’m glad you fared better than your last foray with a car other than yours.

  23. My first car was a flashy white Camaro. I loved it so. I miss the smell. It was a combination of coconut & Verbena spray from bath & Body works covering up stale cigarette smoke and make-out sessions. Oh man. It was the best smelling car EVER.

  24. So glad you dug the ride! Thank you so much for coming by to give it a spin.

    @Christopher Barger, You’re lucky I have morals Mr. Barger.
    Thanks a million times over for the opportunity, both my husband and my father in law have never been more jealous.

  25. SO fun! I drove a Camaro until I had little princesses who needed carseats (safety’s overrated). It was a *weee bit* older *ahem* ’91. Her name was Cammy. I’ll never forget her. Sniff, sniff.

  26. You’re getting cool points from my kid because you drove Bumblebee!
