On my way home from tonight I got to thinking about some friends of mine from college. One of them owned a white Geo Tracker. We used to make fun of him something fierce because of it. Yet every time we wanted to go someplace he would be the one to drive us. Hey, he had a car after all. Beggars can’t be choosers. As I was thinking of my friend and his Tracker, just kind of chuckling to myself I notice there happens to be a Tracker in the lane next to me. I didn’t think anything about it, coincidences happen.

As I continued to drive home I saw yet another Tracker, this time pink. I haven’t seen two Trackers on the road on the same day in ages, or at least not that I’ve noticed. It was strange, but I figured they got my attention because I had been thinking of my friends Tracker.

After picking up the boys I continued my journey home and thought nothing of it. That is until I came to a stoplight. Right in front of me was a black Geo Tracker, Then a white one pulled up along side me, and a red one stopped right behind me. All of them where the convertible models 2-door model, not the even more rare 4-door hard top variety. Okay, I’ll admit I was a little weirded out by the whole thing. I mean, here I am being swarmed by Geo Trackers!

Then a thought crossed my mind. Something so off the wall I couldn’t help but laugh out loud, which made Boopie look at me like I was insane. In fact just thinking of it now makes me laugh.

Imagine if you will a group of guys all going out and buying trackers. Painting each of them in a different color or putting different logos on them. Then they add those exhaust systems that you see idiots put on 4 banger cars like Neons, Civics, Accords, etc that make them sound like sewing machines on crystal meth. After customizing their Geo Trackers, these guys hit the road like a pack of bikers.

Imagine them swarming around cars as they go down the road. Pulling into gas stations in a pack, parking in a line at the local bar or even pulling into one of the few remaining drive-in restaurants to get something to eat. That’s kind of funny, but now imagine people like say Me, T1G, Graumagus, Eric, Blackfive, Johnny-Oh and Dr. Phat Tony doing that. C’mon, admit it; the mental picture of that made you smile! I'd bet T1G wants the pink Tracker!

Wow...that was a really scary mental image! A pack of Geo Trackers with you guys driving them!

Bwhahahah! I get the robin's egg blue Tracker.

For nostalgia's sake :)

Oh, sweet! Count me in! I want the green one. I think there's enough change in my couch that I can buy and maybe even two in case the first one breaks...they cost, what, 12 cents each?

Mine would have to have a towing package put on it, just to make it a little more ridiculous.

Man... I was hoping for the lavender one!

What a horrid thought....

Just fit mine with a "Lift kit...and some Mudders", and I'd be okay with it...And rear steer, and replace the motor with a honkin' V-8, and an updated frame/suspension...Dammit! You owoke the Redneck in me!
