When people pull up next to you and yell, honk, rev..do you pay attention? I'm sure we all get this all the time and I'm wondering....If I'm a total ass, they may see my car one day and key it so....what do you say. I've always acted like I'm listening to my radio and can't hear so it doesn't look so blatant. I just get tired of it. Every once in a while I thrash someone, but otherwise I'm low key. Any serious suggestions. Some want to race, some want to ask stupid ass questions. What kind of auto etiquette are we supposed to practice? And what's up with every person who owns a mustang thinking they can just wax you? Mustang mentality, I suppose. Just venting guys, just venting...keeps me sane.

i smile and say they have a nice car! i live in a fairly small area where there arent many red vipers with a handsome young man driving it. the chance they could find my car and fuck with it later on is reason enough to swallow my pride and compliment their 1988 Mustang LX.....

Same here. Hey Makaha, send some of those mustangs my way. I am dying up here. Can't get anyone to run for the hell of it. /images/graemlins/gr_driving3.gif

Depends on what is doing the yelling and honking!! :thumb:

In reality I smile say thankyou answer all the questions. THe only one that I dont answer is "how much" I hate that question and get it all the time. what kind of low brow piece of shit would be so rude. I just tell them in a sarcastic voice "that is a rude question" that usually shuts them up and they even agree.

The "how much" question doesn't bother me. In fact, most people are surprised at how cheap Vipers are, so I think answering the question is probably a good thing for Vipers overall. I can't tell you how many people have said they think Vipers are like a quarter million, or something outrageous like that.

Hell, if nothing else, it's one less guy who'll be looking to boost my $250K Dodge. /images/graemlins/smile.gif

I get that response all the time "that's all" and I'm thinking...with a response like that I'm wondering what he's doing in a gremlin or a metro. I guess I'll just stay cool about it. I've refrained from racing anyone in the open, but I've raced a few friends on back roads. I have raced a few mustangs. One guy kept saying he was missing a gear....It was just me launching as I was shifting from 1-2. he thought he was missing and just did'nt realize the car pulled that much. JDAWG there's a guy up there who I know would want to race you. He's a friend of mine with a supra. I'll call him and see if you guys can't get together. They're a couple of nice kids and kids they are. Their dad owns a contracting company (huge company) and they've had vettes supras, new 350 Z's. what's funny is they both said their vettes were POS's. And it was a late model vette. He has a supra that has been sent off to be "tuned" yeah, right, it's got 22K under the hood. for a supra, that's some serious aftermarket mods. Let me know if you would like to get together with these guys. They're actually great kids for having parents with an endless bank account.

my first reaction is...if you don't want the attention...buy a corvette. :nod:

But when you do....

be polite and respect the fact people are enjoying your ride. :thumb:

remember..you are only one situation away from being broke...enjoy it as if it was your last day of ownership. /images/graemlins/supergrin.gif

Well spoken, well spoken. I did however buy the car because it gets my attention...honestly never thought about attention from others until now...but yes, you are exactly right.

"How much?" - "fuck if I know, I just stole it" (be prepared to drive it as such)(or "where's first?")

"Wanna race"? - "sorry, just lost my licence in court yesterday, can't afford to go to jail for 3 years"

I HAAAAAATE the "how much" question!!!! My new standard answer is $100k. That usually makes thier jaw drop. I guess in reality that's pretty close. 90ish for an ACR plus taxes. Glad I bought it used! Last night I suckered into giving a girl a ride. When I got back, someone else wanted a ride. I gave FOUR people rides before I told them I didn't have Six Flags painted on the side of my car!

I was out cruising sunset one night in the GTS and some girls came up and asked, "How fast is it?" I told them then one girl said, "No, how fast have you gone in it?"
"In this one, I've gotten it up to 130. I just finished breaking it in."
The girl pulls her head out of my window, turns around, and says, "Only 130" and walks away.

I'm telling people 220 next time.

what about this 'the current speed limit is 75, anything higher is outside of receational driving habits. If you wish to see how fast, purhaps we can work on a deal? What is worth to you?'
