Proud New Owner

I am now, officially, a 2006 GTO owner. Even though the car is not here in my garage yet, it now belongs to me! (Well, and Bank of America.) After a painfully long five months of waiting, today Apple and I drove up to Orlando and signed the paperwork on GTO order number JGTPG6. The car was beautiful, stunning actually, and it drove, handled, and felt like a dream. My time with it was sadly limited, and the weather was only partially cooperative, and the traffic…oh sweet Jesus, the traffic. But all complaints aside, it was a great day, and one that I will never forget. I want to thank Apple in particular for sticking by me today and putting up with the whole ordeal, right down to when we finally got home at 12:30 in the morning!

I’ll soon post a full account of the events this weekend, complete with pictures. But in the meantime, here’s just one photo that I’ll leave you with. It is, shall we say, proof enough.
