100 Wants - No.24 My Car
I have failed my driving test THREE times. It's not that I can't drive, I can I just cannot handle test conditions. Nothing gets my anxiety going like the thought of someone judging what I am doing and saying nothing and then all common sense goes out the window.
I haven't sworn myself off driving yet, I will pass my test otherwise how will I get to drive my dream car?
I love 60s-70s and some 80s cars, I can't explain why. I first started noticing them in Gone In Sixty Seconds (Ah Eleanor....swooonnnn). To me, they are the epitome of luxury, beauty and bad-assery.
1967 Shelby Mustang GT500 AKA Eleanor.
I've been trying to write for, like, 10 minutes but I just find myself staring at the image. She is just ...ugh...beautiful. I look at her and I see the likes of Steve McQueen resting his butt on the bonnet edge, hands in pockets and looking over with that cool squint as if the sun is shining in his eyes waiting to take me on a ride in the countryside.
I feel like this is a car Joan Jett would drive.
I found this video of Eleanor starting up with a 360 view, I've never loved the sound of a man-made mechanical object more.
