It was the summer of 2007. Michael Bay's Transformers had just been released and I was 11. I had never been much of a car guy in the past, but the second I saw the Pontiac Solstice in that dumb explosion-fest, everything changed.

Some cars had seemed cool to me before, but the Solstice was more than that — it was beautiful. '90s Miatas looked dated to me back then, but the Solstice (and Sky) felt modern and cutting-edge. I wanted to know more about the Solstice, and I wanted to learn more about cars in general. I began to pore over auto books and stalk manufacturer websites, and thus an obsession was born.


What specific vehicles got y'all into cars?
