Dodge Neon Rumors – dodge neon
To get a feel for why the gem of a video anchored beneath fabricated it to air, you charge a little context. See, the 1980s were a time aback men with mullets leapt into sports cars on a approved basis, a time aback we liked—above all else—bright and agleam things, big hair, and a acceptable hero story. Watch first, afresh let’s ameliorate it.

Top Gun soundtrack still blasting, our brilliant has to acclimatize his sunglasses—a absolute ’80s ability move—to be abiding he’s seeing this right. What could this never-before-seen alien possibly be?
A brainy “Danger Zone” assurance flashes on the awning and he foolishly leaps the balustrade to abduct the unmanned car, which opens its own aperture to acceptable him inside.

It all feels like a awe-inspiring dream. But afresh again, so do the ’80s.
