    Do you get this too?

    Some people at work and some friends/family are just finding out I purchased a Trans Am (which is not my daily driver) and I usually get the same comments when they see pictures of my car.....

    "Nice, does the car also talk like the KITT car?"
    "Smokey and the Bandit"
    "Going for the 1980's look" - this one I never understand!!

    I get a lot of compliments about my car from car enthusiasts and I really could car less of what people think.... it's my dream car and the T/A was the greatest muslce car ever made... IMO

    But I could do with out the lame comments from people who don't know JACK about real cars.....

    The thing I hate is all the people wanting to race you at every stoplight. Whenever I accelerate from a stoplight, my car is loud due to the ORY / flowmaster I have. I'm only running maybe 2k RPM but people think you're trying to race them.

    I haven't got any bad comments. My favorite comment was from a girl that loves Trans Am's...She said is that your car? Nodded my head. She said, "Now that's a panty dropper"

    I only got mine last week, but as soon as my co-workers saw me getting out of it in the morning, several of my female co-workers have been asking me if I want to join them for lunch, and oh, would I mind driving?

    My male coworkers just ask me when they get to drive it. Except for the guy that insists his stock '03 Eclipse is faster.

    One evening after work I was in my neighborhood two block from my house going maybe 15mph because their was two construction trucks on both sides of the road only room for one car to go thru the hole. All of a sudden a teenager stepped out from behind one of the trucks and I simply came to a stop he gave me a surprised look like, he didn't even see me but I saw him. I go on to my house pull in my garage and am getting the mail. I have already forgotten about it. A SUV pulls up with a women inside rolls her window down. I am thinking she is wanting directions it was a new complex people were always looking for a new street. Next think I know this rabbit women starts to tell me how I am dangerous and was speeding and a menace and .......... I was just shocked. Just because I have a car that looks and is fast does not mean it is going fast all the time. This thinks her little shoud own the road and that cars should not be allowed to drive by her house. I just told her to get a handle on her kid and to get out of my face.

    Sorry Rant off

    I also like when people pull up next to you and give you the motion to rev your engine just so that they can hear it. Then you get the smile and a thumbs up. It's nice being in south Texas, cuz the girls down here love muscle cars and trucks...

    Back when my gn used to be my dd i was right out of high school and lived with my parents, the only bills i had were a credit card and insurance. That thing became very fast in know time. If those were the only bills i had now my t/a would probably being pushing 600 horses and it would be turbo charged. Now if i could only get them to let me again...

    I haven't had any negative comments, even my inlaws love the car. My friends' kids fight to see who gets to ride with me whenever we go someplace. I recently had someone pull up beside me while I was going down the highway, just to ask what year it is. My biggest annoyance is all of the kids in their $500 Buicks that want to stoplight race.
