Cool Cars and Bad Dreams


This is a scene from the movie Bullitt. Steve McQueen being badass. He did all of his own driving in the movie's major chase sequence. Above is a picture of him peeling out in reverse. Like I said BADASS.

Well on Thursday I went to Bell Ford to make an appointment to get my car fixed. They need to fix a leak in the trunk (Manufacturer error), a small handle that you use to lean the driverseat forward so you can get in the backseat, and a small box of some electronics that fell out from under the dash when I spun out about a month ago. These things make the car sound like it's a piece of shit, but I assure you that it is not.

Anyway I was made an appointment for next Thursday and then I went on a walk through the showroom, which I love. Then I went over to the parts area or whatever it's called and checked on prices for racing stripes, a satellite/ipod radio, the cold air intake, and different hoods. When I was done getting prices, I then headed back to my car on the other side of the lot. As I passed the front of the showroom, I was stopped by a salesman. Now usually I just say, "I have mustang being worked on." They say, "Ok." But not this guy.

I explained that I did have a Mustang GT already and that I was just looking at the other Mustangs. He then said, "Well, you need to look at this." He pointed up the little steps to THIS........

The 2008 Mustang Bullitt Edition. It's been 40 years since the movie Bullitt. The 1968 Mustang Fastback has been redone. If you notice there is no Mustang emblem on the front grill. That is because there wasn't one in the movie either. The salesman became totally stereotypical on me. He started pushing the sale of the car. He said, "Do you notice there are no emblems on this car?" I said, "Yes I know." He said, "Come here." I followed him around the back and he pointed out the Bullitt cap on the back. It is like my GT cap but it says Bullitt on it. He then went to the driver's side door and opened it. "Get in.", he said. I said, "No that's ok." He said, "Go ahead." I got in it. It was a totally black interior. He pointed out that it says Bullitt on the steering wheel. It had leather seats in it, which I liked. He then told me about the wheels being darker also. I said, "Oh yeah, I forgot." I jumped out to look. It was nice. He said, "Why don't you trade yours in and get this?" I said, "I just barely got mine the day before Thanksgiving." He said, "People buy and sell all the time." "I know," I said, "I can barely afford mine." He then asked, "How much are your payments?" I said, "430." He said, "Well let's check the sticker and see how much this is." We walked over to the passenger side of the car. He said, "Let's see, it's 40,000, can you do 700 a month." HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, I thought, and said, "No I can't" He then said something that I have only heard in movies and tv, "You know who I see in this car? Not an old man, not someone who is going through a midlife crisis, but I see YOU in this car." I laughed and said, "That would be nice, but it won't happen." He said, "It could." I said, "If I want to live in it and eat my meals out of garbage cans." That was when he finally stopped and went inside to give me his card. Crazy. Cool car though. There are a couple of problems though. It doesn't have a rear spoiler, but the one from the movie didn't either. The color is kind of cool, but kind of not. It isn't Gina.



There's a song that I downloaded from itunes, it's called Gina by Johnny Mathis.

Gina, Gina, I kissed you once and then
I felt so wonderful, so very wonderful
Let's do it over again

Gina (Gina), Gina (Gina), I can't remember when
I've ever felt a kiss that made me feel like this
Let's do it over again

Look at you, oh, look at you
So warm, so sweet, so shy
Look at me, oh, look at me
I can't believe that I'm such a lucky guy

To have Gina, Gina all for my very own
It's much too wonderful, so very wonderful
To know that Gina is mine alone

Oh, look at you, oh, look at you
So warm, so sweet, so shy
Look at me, oh, look at me
I can't believe that I'm such a lucky guy

To have Gina (Gina), Gina (Gina) all for my very own
It's much too wonderful, so very wonderful
To know that Gina is mine (Gina is mine)
Gina is mine alone

Now I know that you are all saying how gay that is that I have a song for my car. I don't know how to explain it other than I have never had a car that I bought for myself. I love my car. I've had several pieces of shit and this is my first car that I picked out myself.

I appologize to all of you. I am sure that you are sick of hearing about my car and I am sorry.

I can't believe that I'm such a lucky guy
To have Gina (Gina), Gina (Gina) all for my very own

Oh and I almost forgot. I had a really bad dream the other night.

I had a dream that I was in the snow. I was being chased by a Predator. Like the one from the movies. I was running and I tripped and fell in a pile of snow. Now the Predator uses heat vision to find his prey. I was in the snow and started thinking that I was cold and that he wouldn't be able to see me. I was on my back and had my eyes closed tight. I was hoping that he couldn't see me. I felt him standing on me. I waited and he didn't move. I slowly opened my eyes looked through the slits. That's when I saw him cloaked (like above) standing almost on my face. He raised his speer, roared, and then stabbed me in the chest. I woke up and had never been that scared in a long time. I then felt my neck because I could tell that my heart was beating like crazy. It was beating faster than I've ever felt it before. Freaky.


That is all. Thanks for reading.
