The Story of Adam: As Told By My Car

Way back in May 2009, when the most important thing in my world was for people to get the message that we needed to Vote For Adam, I decorated my car window. I figured this would be a great way to get the message across.

During Idol

I got so many honks and thumbs up signs from fellow drivers, that I was sure I’d made some impact, if only to put a smile on the San Diego freeways. When I would come out to my car in a parking lot, there was always someone there pointing to my car, and asking me if I knew Adam.

At the Homecoming at the radio station, my car was parked right where Adam HAD to see it when he entered in his limo, as long as he was looking in the right direction. The reporters at the station made sure they photographed it, and pictures of it ended up on the station’s web site.

Then the earth shook. Voting results were released and my car was behind-the-times. My son and husband were sure I’d remove the sign entirely, but oh no, not this fan. I had something more I wanted to say. Judging by the responses I still got from other drivers, I knew I wasn’t alone.

Idol Results

When the Tour Concerts were over, I knew I had to make another change. I had to let go of Idol as Adam was embracing his career and starting on his blistering romp of turning ears and eyes. My son (who is using my car to commute to college with) was begging me at this point to take the sign down. He was groaning about “how hard it was to meet girls when the back of your car is a testament to Adam Lambert!” I had sympathy for him, and agreed to make a change. Thankfully, he supplied me with my next and still-to-this-day current homage. Even my husband could approve, seeing as how it’s “business-related.” I’m still working on getting our words about Adam out to the public. And people are still asking me if I know Adam!

After Idol

Just to throw a little icing on this sweet piece, my dear friend Lila, another Fan Leader on this web site, did me one better!

About Carol

I started writing on this site back in May 2009, not knowing what I was in for or where it would take me. I had no idea of the joy and personal satisfaction I'd find here. I never dreamed that I'd get to meet Adam, but that dream came true! The bonus of becoming such great friends with Lila and the other fans is what keeps me going. Music gets me though every day. In addition to Adam, I love Muse, Linkin Park, 80s and finding newer bands and supporting them by attending everything that's within 350 miles. With Adam, the boundaries are farther! Thanks for joining us on this ride! :)

    Great idea! You’re a true Glambert 🙂

    • Carol…great looking car…I’d be proud to drive that! But I have to be honest…I see those palm trees and I’m sooooo jealous!

      • It’s an everyday scene in San Diego! I know we take it for granted. Thanks for reminding me how lucky I am to live in “America’s Finest City!”

  2. Excellent, Carol what a great story, really put a smile on my face.

    • That sure did put a smile on my face! Thanks Carol for an awesome story. Tell “your car” thanks too. LOL 😉

      No matter what happens, lost my job Tuesday because of cutbacks, y’all keep me smiling. My take on losing my job is that God wanted me home to watch Adam on the Oprah Show on Thursday. Just kidding, but I’m one of those who feel we are not guaranteed tomorrow, so live today to the fullest. In spite of a fabulous family and lots of good friends, well, not close enough to share my true Adam mania with, Adam has become something to revel in, concerts to look forward to, music to listen to, and smiles on the worst day just by listening (again and again) to an interview a new video compilation by some clever person. Now it will be a daily quest to see where and when he will be appearing, so keep me posted, please. Going to see the MJ movie tomorrow with friends. They want to see the movie, that’s okay, but I want to see the 2012 trailer with Adam singing.


  3. Awesome! What a true passion!

  6. What a nice story Carol. Thumbs up to you for supporting Adam and letting the whole world know!
    love and peace.


  7. love what you did…. good for you!

  8. Dont know if i am on to something here or wether it is true or not, but was looking round, and typed in AdamLambert October 26th. and all this popped up some are saying Adams new single is called “What do you want from me”and was penned by Pink and MaxMartin and given to Adam by Pink.See if any of you Glams can find out if this is right or not. I guess it is the middle of the night there as I write this, so will have to be patient.

    • On another website I read that someone from RCA had told someone a similar thing. That it would be “What do You Want from Me?” written by Pink and Martin, and it would be released by Next Monday (or sooner, as some are urging).

      • puteri abdul says:

        jan. theresa, tried to look for it for that single story but failed …
        but I like the title of the single though….

        I also read somewhere that adam is going to appear on the red carpert tomorrow for the This Is it premiere which is supposedly will be telecast via web ….
        is it true ?

    • From what I can tell this is a rumor started by a DJ who blogged that he had inside info from Adam’s record company. I find it hard to believe the label would tell a DJ what Adam’s single will be before announcing it officially. I’ll wait for a proper announcement before I get excited.

      • lamberghini says:

        I just saw that the track Soaked, by Muse, that Adam will be recording, is on You Tube. Type in Adam Lambert Soaked.

  9. GLAMB#474 kimber says:

    LOVE IT!!!! I was thinkingof personalizing my cartag as well. For sure at work all my co-workers know I’m a die-hard fan of ADAM’s and the bookstore is aware also. Got my INSTYLE mag today but still no DETAILS. An associate at Hastings reminded me they do sometimes get mags due out, arrive late. That sucks!!! Great story Carol!!!! PS I hope this single is not going to be a “teaser”, ADAM should put his best out there. But then, ADAM is a little “teaser”. I love him teasing me, it makes me feel goood!!!!

  10. puteri abdul says:

    oh carol, you sure are a true adam fan …
    I wouldn’t have the guts to do what you did, so I salute you for that !!

    by the way, have all of you seen adam in fangs ?
    I can’t and don’t know how to bring the photo here, but it is there if you google on adam’s latest photo in boca raton …
    oh my, never have I felt I wanted to bite on something (or someone) after the photo …

  11. What a great story! I’m sure others have some too, about their ‘affair’ with Adam.

    Mary C and kimber, I’ve posted some instructions over on the twitter thread just below your questions, about 2/3 of the way down.


  12. Lisa Imbruglia says:

    I know it’s a Honda above but if you’d like to see really good quality, excellent sound Ford Day videos then go to

    they’ll be looking right at you…..


    • Thanks so much Lisa. These videos were the best close up shots that I have seen of Ford Day concert. Has anyone who went to this site seen Adam’s cover album? It’s finally out and he is just gorgeous on it. Of course, he has an adrodgeous (spelling???) look, but he is just stunning. Take a look everyone!!!

  13. earlzagurl4u says:

    Carol, Wow what an Adamazing way to show luv and support for Adam!! I know this is a bit off topic but wanted to share that in USAToday yesterday there was a write up about the top 10 concerts this year in spite of the economy. The Idols concert was listed at no. 7,,ahead of Bruce Springsteen, Fleetwood Mac and Beyonce. Idols Live grossed 23 million, 84% of the seats at each venue were sold. The article said it “worked” because, “They have the best setup imaginable in the tv show, and they had some particularly charismatic performers this year.”{ Of course, the picture with the article was a head shot of our man Adam {from DSB}. Our Adam was the only reason *I* went to the concert. Peace, light, lotsaluv to Adam and the Glambs.

    • GLAMB#474 kimber says:

      That’s cool. I went for ADAM only too. I had been wondering about the statistics of s8 concerts, and also about the % of them were ADAM followers. The s8 was the only time I even cared to vote and attend a concert. So AI, thanks to ADAM LAMBERT, you’ve got another bundle in the pocket.

  14. earlzagurl4u says:

    P.S. btw~ I’m not dissing the other Idols,,I luv Kradison, I met Scott, Matt, Danny & Megan as well as Adam, Kris and Allison.. But Adam of course is the only one who has absolutely blown me away and transformed my life ever since Ryan said “and then there’s Adam Lambert” back on Jan, 20,,I.J.L.Y. Adam,,

  15. AdoringAdam says:

    Does anyone know if there are bumper stickers available with Adam’s name on them?

  16. Carol,

    Great way to support our ADAM!!! Your car looks great…and I’m sure you get a lot of comments….I find when I wear my ADAM T-shirt and carry my ADAM purse, ADAM necklace, black nail polish…I solicit comments as well….some people already know who he is and others not….good way to get the word out!!!

    I think the WORLD is going to know who he is VERY SOON !!!!!

  17. Carol,
    A great way to show some Adam love! My only disappointment – I didn’t see any of your “inCARnations” and I live in San Diego!

    On another San Diego note, I had caught a few scenes from Ten Commandments the Musical on You-tube and yesterday did some investigations to buy a copy, but didn’t. Today, I saw in Ralph’s supermarket a cardboard kiosk with “family friendly DVDs” (heh!) and THERE IT WAS – for all of $4.99! There’s a little silver starburst sticker on the front that says: “Featuring Adam Lambert American Idol Finalist” stuck on the outer cellophane wrapper. I didn’t quite buy them all out…!

    • Hi Ayley! Great to know another San Diego fan of Adam’s on this site! I’ll put you on my list to contact when we group together for the upcoming concert!! Please reply with your email so I can add you to the list!

  18. TexasWannaHoldHim says:

    Carol, thanks so much for sharing your passion with us! This put a smile on my face. Can’t wait ’til the new song comes out next Monday (or hopefully sooner 🙂 !

  19. Silvana/Argentina says:

    thank you so much for sharing your story or maybe your car’s story. Great idea. You put a smile on my face, for sure.
    Lots of love,

  20. Carol,
    I LOVE your car. Thanks for sharing your story and being such a great example of a true Adam fan. I’m sure if Adam saw it, he was thrilled. Who knows someone may have told him about it if he hasn’t seen it. Either way, it’s all good. It made me smile for sure.

    I like the license plate idea. My plates run out the end of November and I think I will see if there are any “Adam” plates available, I’ll have to give it some thought.

  21. Carol, you and your car are ‘Adam passion’ personified. What a great idea!!!!! Mmmmmmmwah

  22. Great story, Carol! I too, wish I had the guts to do something like this, but living in Milwaukee my car would probably get keyed.

  23. I love the license plate. That one would be safe from keying cuz not everyone would know what it means. Good idea to get it now. In a short time, an ADAM plate would be ADAM999 or999ADAM….in MI anyway. There would be so many requests that the numbers would be sky-high!

    I got my 2 copies of Detail magazine at Barnes & Noble. The cashier didn’t know who ADAM was….I smiled and just said “you will!” then walked away! That’s my standard comment to those poor people who don’t yet know who ADAM is! I just can’t believe that not everyone is “in love” with ADAM like we all are!!!

  24. This is wild! Love the story and your heart felt passion for our guy!

  25. Fun story! When you’re ready for a new car would you consider a US car company?

  26. What a delightful adventure; thanks, I dnjoyed the read. Love the liscense plate.

    I want a license plate like that! It’s awesome!
