Taxi requests

So for everyone who has already received their Camaro, how do you shoo away people who want rides? I already got a few requests from coworkers and I can already see my neighbors wanting a ride also. Really, I"m trying to stock up on good replies in advance!

Sorry, can't advise you on that.

I've given a lot of rides in the CTF cars. In the last 5 months, I think most people have just been thrilled to sit in one let alone ask for a ride. The rides I've given have for the most part all been offered. Very few have been asked for.

Just be really polite and very tactfully tell them to get bent and leave you the hell alone. lol But nicely.

tell them to get their own...lol... Nah.. If you like them then I wouldn't mind given them a ride but its your car so you can do what you want. just tell them that you are trying to figure out what the MPG is going to be and you dont want to mess it up by adding their weight to it. or you haven't broken it in yet and you want to wait to give them a ride when you can get on it and scare the crap out of them

The good thing about looking hispanic is that you can pretend to not understand english. "No, no entiendo lo que me dice..."

Or if you really want to be a d!ck, you can say "sorry, i'm in a hurry to get somewhere very important." when they reply, "where are you going?" just say, "i'm going to the moon, b!tch!!!" and then just floor it!

WHAT?!?! You are very generous buddy. Make it "6" and i'll be glad to take your Camaro off of your hands for a few hours

J/k, family members are the only ones that will be able to drive the Camaro, if it ever comes...

I keep having people say, "I get the first ride in it, right?"
I have to tell them, "Yeah, just don't tell anyone."

I'll pretty much let anybody I know ride in it so long as they haven't been . Now I already know of two people (whom I havn't told I ordered one) that will be asking me to drive it. Still trying to come up with something to tell them because it's my sister and brother in law.

I'll probably just end up saying "nope, sorry, i gotta go"

I solved this problem when I got my first Corvette. If it was a friend, no problem as long as they sat shotgun. A "friend" got, "Sure, buckle up" & the quarter in 13 seconds. most other "friends" did not ask. I did get some who said "do it again", though (lol).

I'm going to let anyone who sincerely asks to have a ride in mine when I get it... heck, there's one co-worker of mine I WANT to drive it. I'm a very sharing person when it comes to this kind of thing, always have been.

I just say that I am auctioning off rides and the proceeds go toward my speeding tickets.

I will keep my baby for myself and no one is driving it. If one of my friends would like a ride that is fine! They would give me the same courtesy. My friends will be and are excited for me as I would be for them! As for my neighbors, if they want to see the car it is all good. I will be more than happy to show them.
