    and the second was at a car show "that has a diesel motor in it right?"

    I was in my driveway cleaning my wheels when one of my neighbors kids (maybe six years old) walked up and said "sir, I sure like your car. But my mom gets really mad when you start it up"

    I stopped by a local Dodge Dealership and had a salesman ask if I had the V-12 option in the car or if it was the base V-10......I promptly left the dealership to go to a different one.

    Be careful not to judge an entire dealership based on one uneducated salesman. The management might be much sharper.

    Best One Yet...

    I was waiting at the traffic light in my 04 Vert, when two young white males ( probably early 20's ) ride up to my car on 2 motorized scooters; one them yells: " Wow!!... A Black Man in a Viper!!...How often do you see that!! "......I Actually laughed...And told them to take a picture and put it in a museum...Then I peeled off...

    When I was cool and owned a viper a woman driving a corvette described it as a "little corvette"... I let her think that.

    Way back in the early days when I was much younger....as I was sitting in a parking lot in my new 1994 RT10....a fellow in another vehicle kept checking me out! After some time he came over to me (I guess he wanted to be sure I knew his intentions)....and said "BTW...I'm not checking YOU out...but your car".....
    THANKS ALOT Buddy.....(like he HAD to tell me!!) LOL!!

    The one I get a lot is, "Hey, can I drive it, I know how to drive stick". I guess people feel that if they know how to do something, they should. I always think, given enough time and the right parts, I could build an airplane. But there is no way in hell I would fly in it.

    I always thought that if I had the right upbringing and education, I would have made an excellent orthopedic surgeon.

    That's a good point if you were a Doctor to start with. I am by trade a Mechanic, it just has nothing to do with cars. And I still wouldn't fly in an airplane I built.

    Today at a show i was told by a genius that my ACR is powered by a 2.9 ford cosworth engine, he was politely told
    that my starter motor is bigger than that

    My wife and I came out of a restaurant and as we got into the viper, a kid from the car wash next door came running over and asked if I would give him a ride. I said well it is only a 2 person car and I have my wife with me, he said well she could wait here! To which I replied sorry I have to sleep with her and I enjoy my bed and her company. As we were backing out she said she would didn't really have a problem with waiting if I wanted to take the kid for a ride, but I didn't feel comfortable do that so we continued on our road trip.

    I was at a car show with my Viper and an old hippie with long silver hair starts talking to me, he tells me back in the 60s he had a Volvo that was the fastest car he ever had and these new type sports cars are no match to my old Volvo I asked him what he was smoking:D.

    Funniest thing happened years ago at a gas station. I was filling up my red 1998 ( first Viper ) and a very attractive young lady came up and was staring at the car , walking around it and finally looked around and said., " Wow ,this is one beautiful machine , is it yours?! My response was a simple, " You should know Denise , you have it insured ( she is my Ins. Agent's secretary )." She finally glanced directly at me and blushing responded, " Oh, it's you Bill !" Looked right through me from the start , just saw the Viper and nothing more, ha,ha!!!!

    I'll tell you what's odd, women flirt with me more when I'm NOT driving my Viper. I must seem unattainable standing next to it.....

    That must be my problem too, lol. I think I get more looks driving my old Dart and Vette, but then again the Viper is silver so it blends in a little more than "arrest me red". Maybe they just think it's another Vette.

    You just need to get older, to put this in context I'm 80 years old. I was parking in front of a hot dog joint last weekend, a woman about 60 in a Lexus stopped behind me and put down here window saying: "What a beautiful car, I've never seen a Viper before, where are you going?" I said: "In to have a hot dog for lunch." She said: "My name is Shirley, how about I park and get in the Viper and we go to my house for lunch? (wink)"
