2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS: Reminding Me I Have a Pretty Sweet Job
January 28, 2010
So I was getting out of our 2010 Chevrolet Camaro after having just parked it in the very touristy Hollywood & Highland shopping center when a GMC Yukon packed with 20-something dudes pulled up to the too-small parking spot next to me. I took my time leaving the Camaro to make sure they didn't hit it while they tried to park.
Once I saw everything was OK, I started to walk away when their driver-side and backseat windows came down and all eager faces were looking at me. "Nice car!" said the driver. "How do you like it?" asked one of three backseat passengers. The usual questions followed. Finally I let it be known that this wasn't actually my car but rather a company car. Thinking that would be the end of the conversation, I started to back away again, but turns out that saying a Camaro is a company car opened up a whole new can of worms. "What?!" "What company?!" "Sweet!" "Wow!" "That's your company car?!"
"I work for Edmunds.com." "What's that?" And so on. Anyway, a bunch of cute 20-something dudes gushing over the car I was driving was a fun way to be reminded that I do have a pretty sweet gig. Last time that happened it was with the R8.
