    Cool The stop-and-stare.

    Respect is so greatly appreciated by "the stop-and-stare." I got to drive the Phoenix yesterday, it was nice, sunny, 50's and all road salt had been washed away the weekend before. I've been storing it in our new home's garage while we're renovating it and I live about 13 miles from the house in an apt. So yesterday before continuing paint work, I decided to open her up It was 3:30 PM. Kids were all over the street coming home from school or playing in driveways. So I cruised out and kept it in 1st all the way up the street, maintaining a steady 3000 RPMs of pure Corsa.

    EVERY kid stopped, dropped their jaw and just stared, to the point that a Basket ball fell and dribbled to the side. Greatest feeling ever-hope that moment has them effected forever.

    I remember the first time I actually saw a worked over F-body. It was a black WS.6 on a road everybody was cruising on. My sister and I were driving back from our bowling league and we were at a light and the windows were down since it was nice out. Then we watched this black WS.6 line up with a Mustang and we were both excited about what was about to unfold. They first started the ritualistic revving, and the deep burbles of the V8 was intoxicating! When the light switched green the intersection lit up and sounded like a war zone with blaring exhaust, screaming tires, etc. Needless to say we were both in awe of the display.

    that's what got me into cars. up untill two years ago i did not care or really even like cars. that was until i saw at a stop light in my awesome '97 hyundai sonata. (R.I.P.)
    a 4th gen camaro and a '00ish mustang to the right of me. they revv'd, and i was wondering why they were doing that. thought it was stupid at the time...then the light turned green and they took off like rockets underneath that highway bridge ran the light that had not yet turned green. and i was amazed, ever since that moment i knew i wanted to work with cars

    I do that in front of kids sometimes also. Trying to give them some music to hear instead of 4 cylinder fartin'! Good job! After driving our Jeep a few weeks, then we get a break in the weather during the winter, the WS6 always feels so strong again. Great feeling.

    moments like that are why we're all in the cars we're in now.
