Semi-Guilty Pleasure Friday Night
The guilty pleasure lies not in liking Kathy Mattea in general or this song in particular, but in how cheesy and BAD this video is.
I have always loved cars. Comes from having a dad who was a mechanic and who restored cars on a regular basis. He had a Model T back in the day, but the first car of his I remember riding in was one of these (a '67 T-bird), only without the asinine door mod. At the same time he had one of these--a 1966 Mustang Fastback. The last car of his I remember was a 1947 Cadillac, heavily modified.
For some reason, upon seeing it, the first thing everyone said was, "Hey, that's a Buick, right?"
Let's compare the two for a second:
Now, I'm no gear-head, but the difference is obvious to even the most untrained eye, yes?
And for the record, the first car I ever drove on a regular basis was one of these:
I honestly don't remember the year on it, but this looks about right. Only, ours was red outside of the wood paneling. Ooh, what a sweet little thing she was. V-8, all leather, power everything (which was great 'til stuff started shorting out). The start of my love affair with station wagons. I miss her...
I guess that's the guilty pleasure for this late-Friday night.
