Auto B Nuts

Too bossy not sitting well.

 You might take nagging from mom, but from your new Camaro?

After all the money you spent on her…(The car obviously, Mom has to love you.)

After being suitably cool enough to be seen with her… (Once again , the car. With moms, it’s the other way around..)

After carefully ordering just the right specs. (“No, no new wheels for Christmas. Mom knows best.)

After moving stuff around in the garage so there’s plenty of room and nothing even considers falling or bumping into her, this is how you are repaid?

Prima Donna: “Sorry, it’s too cold.”

The Chevy Camaro Convertible Won’t Let You Put the Top Down When It Thinks It’s Too Cold 

The spoiled child. Precious be thy name.

Blame fluid build up. Really, that’s not just a human thing.

“…what? Fluid? There’s convertible fluid? That sounds like a joke, like blinker fluid, right?….It’s not a joke…”

All the name calling, shaming, and coaxing, didn’t make any difference when it was below 38 degrees F.

The rest of the hilarious story of a man simply trying to top it off with his Camaro on a chilly Boston morning here.

Love the vintage bumper sticker slogan? Just don’t try to do it in a new Camaro with the top down on a cold day. Hey, didn’t mom always tell you to bundle up, too? (Classic Parts)

There is a work around the known issue. Chevy begrudgingly reveals..(Just like mom – you can hear it…)

“If you really have to..Although best if you don’t…If everyone else is jumping up and driving around with the top down in the cold, does that mean you have to?”

What? Cars colluding with Mom. Stop you just before you hit trouble. They give you lots of cues and directions. Try to keep you going straight. And that nagging: “Do you really need to go so fast?” Smothering with assistance. “Here, just let me drive you.”

Those rebels and free spirits pondering “topless muscle cars” do have options….Mustangs pony up.

(Of course, Chevy can’t help halting that with a speedy swipe.)

Stopped from being cool.

Makes you wonder who’s in the driver’s seat.

Not the boss of me
