Shelby Owners can be sensitive

Yesterday I entered my 2010 camaro in a local car show. Last year I took a trophy. Anyway, the two judges walked by and started judging my car. I noticed that one of them had a Shelby GT sweatshirt on. I smiled at her and told her I noticed her sweatshirt. I said: "You know, I think the Shelby Mustang is a gorgeous car, especially in my rear view mirror." She swelled up like a stuck toad and mumbled something and walked away from my car. The other judge shrugged her shoulders and walked too. You never guess, never won a thing this year. HA, HA, it was worth every word. I would do it again in a heartbeat, in fact I did. There was a Shelby up about 4 cars, so I talked to him too. He laughed and said he liked the joke. Wait a minute, that wasn't a joke........

If the shelby is in your review mirror its because they don't want to waste their time. We all know that it will beat a stock ss.

A Shelby GT is a 13.5 second car so a SS with a GOOD driver should have no problem in a race. A Shelby GT500 is a different story.

If you mean one of those guys that like to enjoy life. Tease and be teased. Dish it out and take it too, yeh. Laugh and be laughed at, yeh. I never take myself too seriously. There's always someone faster and why not have fun getting there. I don't mind loosing it is a part of life. Yeh, I guess I am one of those kind of guys. Thanks

By the way airman....thanks for your service to our country.

Even if you are faster than tha a Shelby GT, it's still uncool to run someone else's ride down at a car show. All you did was help to give Camaro guys a bad name. Thanks a lot.
People don't seem to know the meaning of respect and integrity anymore.

I guess you've never been to many car shows. That's not uncommon. Did you ever think that maybe the OP's car wasn't worthy of a trophy and it had more to do with that then his out of line comment?
