OOH! Ive got a good one; I was at the carwash vacuuming my IS out a few weeks back. This prick drove up next to me in an old Infiniti J30. I could see him checking out my car out of the corner of my eye. When I was done, he says to me, "Nice Civic man" and smurks. I knew full well he knew it wasnt a Civic, so I got $hitty right back with him. As innocent as I could, I replied, "Thanks. Your Altima looks nice too" He didnt appreciate that too much


Other than that, I get thumbs-up and questions every now and then.

LOL...I'm gonna have to remember that.

Yeah, this guy that drives a Lexus RX300 lives in my area and one day when I was washing my car, he comes up and introduces himself. So we just started talking about my car and he was telling me he might consider trading his for an IS300. So far, I been getting nothing but positive feedbacks.

I had to get my windows tinted because when I wanted to smoke a bowl I couldn't, because so many people were checking out my IS, But it is a great feeling to be driving and a lotus, or austin martin, or other nice cars are staring at yours..

Austin Martin??? Is he related to Austin Powers? I wonder if he knows Manuel or Weagons.

BTW, I am j/k. Not intended to be mean.

Someone in NY city thought I was a cab and hailed and came up to my car to get in after they hailed me. I happen to stop for the red light and she went to get in till I looked funny at her, come to think of it I should have let her get in...she was hot! Most people are like "Dam, what is that ****, that's hot!"
