    how many of you would stop for a fellow f-body?

    The reason i ask is because last week i finally got a catback used from someone, its a hooker, and had it put on by the little shop in roselle, IL. Long story short the exhaust clamp fails twice and on the last time it slips out of the hanger too so i had to drag it for a piece till I could pull over. (I was on 83 and roosevelt for those of you in the burbs of chicago) So i called my roadside for a tow and in the over two hours it took I saw 5 birds and 3 camaros pass and no one tried to stop. I got the thing welded today and all seems good but i was just curious.

    I would stop for just about anyone if I have the time... there are some caveats to that but for the most part I would. I defianantly would for a F/Y body fellow!!

    This thread must have been bad luck. I saw it last night and on the way to work this morning the bird died. I got it started again but wow.

    To be honest with you I stop pending how much time I can afford to use for just about anyone. Just 2 weeks ago I was cruising in the camaro and I stopped and helped give a jump to a clean looking civic. Don't bother me I'll help whoever I know how much it sucks. I had to change a starter at a park at 2 am in a snow storm. I know sounds like a tall tail but it happened.

    I'd stop for any f-body, but not limited to them either. Helped change someone's radiator hose on her j-body in the middle of January. That was a riot.

    I have to say it depends on the situation

    Like, does the car look like a POS and the area I'm in, too many A-holes have been know to do setups and carjack ppl using a nice ride to get a nice ride.

    i would stop. but you definitly have to watch out. here in baltimore two people were stopped on the side of the road and a tow truck stopped to see if they were ok and the people poured gas on the guy, light him up, took his truck and left. you definitly need to watch out for yourself too

    i've stopped before for a f-body... it was a lt1... the guy was taking it out for a test drive to... it died on him... i asked him if he needed my cell but he couldn't remember the sellers phone number... so i took him over to the guys house...

    Nope. I've never stopped for anyone. I would not be much help, and some muscle car drivers are not to my liking.

    I used to stop to help people often. But, these days, most people have cell phones and are able to call someone, so, I don't think about it as much. I would definitely stop to help and elderly person along side the road though. Or, if I thought someone was in distress.

    I would stop if I had time. Does depend on the area though. I always have my concealed carry, because every day I read about someone getting shot or robbed somewhere. If I don't stop I usually call the non emergency police number and let them know there is someone broken down.

    I would stop anytime and not worry about the area Im in, I would be looking around a bit but CCW's are very handy so I don't worry too much I just stay prepared. So if I see any of ya on the side of the road i'll stop for ya and help as much I can.

    I wouldn't stop cause there's not much i can do in a trans am, but maybe offer you my phone , but who don't have a phone these days ???

    wouldn't give a " stranger " a ride either !!

    Now if i was in my dually and not alone with tool's , depending on what was going on at that moment i may stop.
