    Up here in the Detroit Area (where we can only enjoy cruising for 6-7months out of the year) the F-body crowd has formed a small community. The Old I Don't give a shit attitude was pretty prevelent for awhile. Alot of times the newer cars would get shunned by Old Muscle. Times are changing and it seems that the Imports are getting looked down on more only because in recent years they have become more popular here in Detroit where Domestic Iron is King. Although most of us in the know can still respect a fast car No Matter Who it was made by.

    I finally got a response from someone yesterday. It was a Silver WS6. Going the same direction I was passing them, due to the traffic flow, and I revved. When she came up next she looked over with a big smile and a thumbs up. Feels good to finally get a response.

    , it's a rare ocurance when I see another F-body around here... most of them don't even give a flying fk that you're driving another Camaro/Fbody... it seems that only Mustang Drivers and Ricers get exited about seeing my car around, always tossing a rev, or trying to slam into my car in order to get me to race...

    one of these days, I'll find the Promise land, and find that damn LS1 Club that keeps eluding me so much...

    hahaha, I park next to other F-bodies too. my college is full of LT1s. No one ever revs at me, but I did give a thumbs up to another SS once and got a thumbs up back. another time I was driving in Fullerton with my friend and saw a badass silver SS with what had to be open headers it was so loud. the car was tottally races out, cammed and everything with a rough idle. I rolled up next to him and asked him what kind of exhaust was on it, and all he said was dual, then he floored it away all fast than slowed down. I guess he just wanted to race. I didn't make the connection and turned the cornor. haha, the guy was a dick anyways.

    I like to park next to other F-bodies since I know that they will not hit my car with their car doors. Sometimes they will look after your car for you when your shopping..... I get the wave from alot of guys and girls up here in Olympia/Tacoma, WA. I will see how many I get when I drive from WA to SC this January for school.

    30 minutes ago I was in South Austin in my red SS when I had to yield to a vert WS6 being driven by an older man with his wife and I gave a friendly nod/wave, both of them looked at me like I was a baby killer.

    I was cruising around the other night and lots of F-bodys were out. One camaro kept revving up everytime he passed me so I flipped my lights at him and when he came over it turned out to be a guy that moved away and just moved back here after he graduated from my school. Whats the chances in that.. lol

    Come on now. I own a 98 Formula and a 96 Cobra. I love them both for different reasons. If I am in the Cobra I like to give others a good ol' 7 grander!
