the fact you were in the "drive through" should be a sign that it isn't a ZL1. hahaha ZL1 people don't eat in such a..... unwealthy atmosphere! They go to restaurants with cheering crowds and get valet parking like that 18 year old guy was saying! haha

Luckily no one is very rude about cars around here...we all seem to share the common interest in going fast whether it's in a Ford, GM, etc...

Guy: oh man is that supercharged!?
Me: yup
Guy: its stick right?
Me: no its auto, i would have gotten stick but this car was already supercharged and i bought it for v6 pricing. So 478 at the wheels is not too shaby for the price man.
Guy: yeah i would never drive an auto, thats why my honda is stick.
Me: really....(looked at his honda and then laughed in his face)

A kid in a primered-out 90's model Civic hatchback pulled up next to me at the gas station a few months ago. I could barely comprehend what he was saying over the incredibly loud/rough idle coming from his little 4 cylinder motor.

When he revved his motor, a puff of smoke that resembled a fart popped out of his rusty exhaust can. That kid told me that he wanted to race for "pink slips" and that he'd "smoke me". He had a serious look on his face. I just laughed at him and he drove away after restarting his Civic after it stalled.

I can't wait to run across a 2015 Mustang owner that buys 4 banger Eco-boost engine. I'm sure they will have some decent performance but I'm saving this line for them. "Hey my neighbor had a 1977 4 cylinder mustang 5 speed....."

What exactly are you doing at 18 to have already paid off a 2013 ZL1? Apparently college with two degrees and a CPA license was a waste of my time....

Two months after buying mine, the SO is in Starbucks while I'm sitting outside looking in the window of a parked SS on display, I overhear a guy scream "GET A MUSTANG".

I watched him drive off in a Ford Windstar.

Recently I have heard...."Your husband lets you drive his car?" and my favorite is always, "it must be an automatic..." Ummmm??? No and No

I do like to watch people trying to figure out my plates.....Most think I am a redneck who can't spell. Living in Cowboys county, I wanted a plate that only a true MN Vikings fan would get....and they do!

For me, the one and, only snide comment came just after i purchased my 2013 ZL1 in July.....
I had a commitment too attend an event 750 miles away in Kansas and, what better way to put the required break in miles on the motor and, do it in style?

*Roadtrip!*

I had'nt been there very long when the owner of a new Challenger R/T decided to "introduce" himself and, make several ill placed comments about the fit/finish, quality of metal used in the construction and, general performance of my vehicle....

He was told to walk away.....now.....

Later on a good friend of mine passed on too him that when/if he ever decided to head east too Indiana....maybe to attend an event that "I" was the club president for and, sponsored.

He might....
1. Not want to re-introduce himself.
2. Do not ask me why i traded in my new SRT8 Challenger for this car.
3. Do not ask to follow me home to see my personal collection of Big Block, Multi-carb, Extremely Rare, Fully restored (by my hands) 60's/70's MOPARS......
4. Stay away.

I still consider myself to be a true Moparman but, 27 years ago i sold an original 69 Z/28 that i've always missed.....This new ZL1 brought back alot of great memories and, reopened my eyes to what a modern muscle can do to make you feel 18 all over again.

Some people will never understand. The SRT8 was fun...this is alot more.....

Great post. My favorite Mopars were the 60's and early 70's Dodge Chargers, Plymouth Cudas and Roadrunners.

Thank-you Bird....

One thing i've learned over the years is that if you love cars, you LOVE cars.
You may see something that doesn't suit your style or the brand may not be you personal favorite....but, you have to respect the owner for what their vision of beauty is.

We never truly "Own" our cars, we keep them for the next owner...and, so on.....(If of course we don't wreck the dang thing!)

This ZL-1 truly excites me, makes me childish and, occasionally scares the out of me...

It's a fun car for sure! Rolling down the road giving the peace sign...
