OK, I've only had the car for a few days so far, but I've already gotten a couple of noteworthy reactions, & I'm sure that many of you have as well...
The first one kind of blew my mind - I pulled in to a parking lot next to a veterinary clinic & blipped the throttle a little bit, just because I'm still loving that exhaust note. I didn't think anything of it until a (not-unattractive) 20-something girl in scrubs walked a dog a few feet past the car, paused for a second, & then threw one of those "come-hither" looks over her left shoulder!
Now, I'm no longer even close
to my twenties, & it's a pretty safe bet that People magazine doesn't have me in the running for "Sexiest Man of the Year" - so I'm thinking that I'm not the only one who likes to hear a good V8 exhaust note. (And no, I didn't follow-up on her look, I've been married too long, & didn't care to make a fool of myself.)
The second one was yesterday - I was driving to work, saw a nice-looking late-model Camaro SS merge onto the road slightly ahead of me. I had enough speed to overtake him, but I still gave it a little
bit of throttle just to let him know that it wasn't an "Impalibu" going by. (FWIW, I have no interest in street racing, so I wasn't trying to provoke that.)
When I got caught at a light a few hundred yards up the road, he merged over into the right-turn lane & stopped in my blind spot for a few seconds. I could see him looking over (trying not to be obvious)
, & the phrase
"What the he!! is THAT
was all but written on his face... Gave me a chuckle as I was going in to work...
Anyone else have any amusing stories to tell??
