Well, there was nothing to do in the house today so my dad and I decide to go out driving. We get ready and he tells me "get the camera and meet me out in the car". I got the camera and met him out in the car. We go driving, working our way to the school parking lot, he said he wanted to try and take some shots of the car since it was a nice day. He circles around and stops the car, gets out, i get out and he comes to my side. I ask him "You're going to take some pics HERE, with no background, and with your driver door open?". He climbes in the passenger side and tells me, go get in. I was all :D 's when he said that. Its manual and had never driven manual before. I had the general idea of how to do it but I will admit it was pretty difficult and I did get going. So half of my dream came true...I got to drive my dream car.

Whats the half that didn't come true you ask? ...I didn't get to go over 150+ MPH and didn't get to do some burnouts/doughnuts! :laughing:

He said that I would probably need to drive a different car next time rather than driving a Vette that just wants "get up and go" so much. Practice makes pefect i guess. Well, Just had to share how my days been so AWESOME!

I got to drive my dad's 68 way back in 89 I think. I was in high school and got to drive it through the back of the neighborhood. Never got out of second but I didn't care it was great.

Congrats:thumbsup:
