Question Have you been embarrassed by a passenger?

Has any passenger in your Camaro done anything that embarrassed you, or was "un-Camaro like"?

In my case, I was taking the neighbor and his teenage son to his sister's house, and we pulled up at a light next to a carload of heavily tatted vatos. The kid shouts out the window at them, "Where you from?" while showing them the palm of his hand with his fingers curled at the second and third knuckles (a heinous insult in the Latino culture).

Needless to say, I used the full accelerative abilities of my car to dip set outa'
there. I know I should've left the kid there with his new found friends, but his father looked so plaintive...:(

Wink A better explanation of rude hand signals.

You hold the hand palm outward, curl the tips of the four fingers downward, and bend the middle knuckle down as well. Your fingers are thus tucked as short as they'll go. Keeping the thumb outstretched you display the palm side of the hand toward your audience while holding the arm forward and at an angle that places the hand at about or above shoulder level. Although its meaning is very aggressive indeed, to keep it polite on this family forum, let's just say it says, "¡La tuya!"

A vato is a gang member, or someone who lives the gang lifestyle.

Vato is slang for man, dude, or even homie (homes). It's predominately used by the Chicano culture. Picture a lowrider rolling on 14" Daytons, white walled, with curb feelers, dude driving said sled is sporting slightly baggie Dickie pants, more then likely khaki, a wife beater under a plaid shirt buttoned only at the top. You have a generic picture of a vato.

Really doesn't have anything to do with gangs or gang life per se, but gang activity can be there.

This ultimate hand gesture insult I know nothing about, and I grew up in a predominately Chicano area of Colorado. Time for google, lol!

Milk? Tribone? GTAHVIT? Any idea what this mysterious hand signal is?

Maybe he was signaling 4th down?
