My new Camaro SS Convertible

By HottLips

Actually, this is the car I blogged a couple of weeks ago. It's actually my brother Dean's car, but I'm taking care of it for him while he's in the Navy. He came by for a few days last week on his way to basic training to visit me and our folks, and to drop off the car with me. Officially it's now in my dad's name for insurance purposes but also, to make it official, I bought it from him for $1 with the understanding that he can buy it back when he leaves the Navy and can use it whenever he's on leave in the area or if he gets stationed in the area. I'm thrilled that he trusts me with his baby! We've always been close, but he never trusted me to drive this car until just a couple of days ago. He knew that I was in love with it from the day he bought it, too, so I'm so thankful for his trust in me now. I'll take good care if it.

Mixed Emotions

By HottLips

My older brother, Dean, has enlisted in the Navy, and he'll be leaving for basic training (or whatever the Navy calls it) in a week or two. I'm SOOOOO PROUD of him, going to serve America! On the other hand, we're at war, and I'm afraid for him. He's a survivor, so I hope and pray he'll be okay. he's definitely one of the 'good guys', and he's always been there for me.

The reason I'm posting this on Motortopia is that he told me today that he wants me to have his car while he's in the Navy. (He wants it back in the same condition when he gets back!) This isn't just any car - It's my DREAM CAR! He has a black 2001 Camaro SS convertible! Up til now, he hasn't even let me drive the car, so you can imagine how surprised I was when he told me I would be "taking care" of his car for him! It's a HUGE responsibility, but as much as I love him (AND that car!), you better believe I'll take good care of it! He'll be driving back to our family's home this weekend to spend one last week with us, and of course give me the keys.

I'm really looking forward to having the car, but I'd really rather have Dean here and safe instead.
