So many reasons why my Camaro is better than my friends' cars...

One friend's BMW X5 costs $800 per oil change. Another friend's Audi A6 needed a headlight... that set him back $700. Most of my friends who own economy cars get only very marginally better (and sometimes the same) MPGs as the car I drive... only, their economy cars suck a significant measure of dignity right out of the driver with every minute spent behind the wheel, and, in a crash, they lose. And the REST of my friends? Not one gets to experience the selfish pleasure of regular adoration from the public at gas stations, red lights, and the parking lot of (insert name of ANY business!). Hell, I just discovered that one of my friends (a casual acquaintance, not a close buddy) has a picture of MY Camaro as his primary photo on FB... he's not claiming it as his own, to his credit, but does enjoy the "guilt by association!". . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Am I being pompous? Yes, blatantly so, but only here, on these pages shared with others in the same boat... to my friends, humility is what garners mutual respect for each other.

About %60 of the miles on my car come from the refusal to ride in my girlfriends/ friends car! Even when I travel for work, I take my car because nothing else rental wise compares! Lol I definitely understand

Its a strange feeling to look over at the next car and they are sometimes staring hard at the car or sometimes snapping a quick pic with their cellphone cameras.

I always like to think that you should enjoy your car and not trash others. Just enjoy it.
