Re: [DML] Displaying Our Cars

Nothing compares to the some of the weird people in NYC.  If you stop  
at a red light at an intersection, some weirdo may come up to your  
vehicle and place their hands or knocking on it while commenting such  
as "Is is aluminum," or "Is it really stainless steel?"  Beside the  
usual standardized comments: "Where's the coke?"  "What happens after  
88 mph?"  How many "Jigga Watts?" And etc....  In some neighbors,  
you're lucky they don't hurl things at you in envy.
