One time I am wiping the bugs off the front of my car when a fella walks up to me and says "hey buddy how come you didn't get an old Camaro" I say "because I wanted this Camaro" to which he replies "everybody has one of these Camaro. I must have seen 5 Camaro's that look exactly like yours on the way here today".

Another time I see a kid across a show field point to my car and sprint a good 50 yards across the field with his friends. He comes right up to the front of the car, looks at his friends with disappointment on his face and says "sorry guys...... it's only an SS, my bad."

Had a Corvette elitest come over and ask me about my car. he goes "hey have you ever drove your car back and forth to work". I respond "yeah I drive it whenever I can" he lowers his head into one of this hands wipes his face and says "thats just a god damn shame son.... a god damn shame"

all in all I get this garbage all the time and I was wondering what kind of back-handed compliments any of you guys have heard about your car.
You've met your fair share of assholes apparently

I had a guy say it was nice but his 2000 something eclipse could take me. I said well you better have something under the hood and he kind of grinned. So for like the next two weeks i kept asking him to come to the track and have some fun and he was talking all kinds of crap but never came out. So finally one night he said you wanna see under the hood? We both went outside and he did his big reveal... I said "You got nothing?" and he was just grinning having fooled me for the past two weeks. Not mean just funny lol

I've got a buddy from college that has a 2011 Mustang GT. He constantly tells me GM forgot to paint the hood on my 1LE, usually coupled with the standard bankruptcy comments It was stupid the first time he said it, utterly annoying the next 362. My usual comeback is either: Ford forgot to give you a rear suspension, or Ford forgot to give your car brakes.

Maybe its time to move!

I just ignored him honestly. I hate going to gas stations cause people always feel the need to talk about your car or some car they had "before you were even born!" And I'm like ...

i honestly never understood why people go out there way and say ''oh it's a v6'' just unreal. when I see a v6 i just say cool and move on. I can't imagine going out my way and trash talking someones ride in front of them.
