I honestly have no idea lol it was actually a female cop. She just checked my licence and registration, and then let me go. I didn't ask questions, because it wasn't much of a hassle. I was left pretty clueless lol

I very much think this is the problem, less and less people are able to afford nicer cars...and when they see someone with a nice car (not just a Z) they tend to act up.

Happens on a daily basis to me. Always at least one guy on my commute to/from work where they try to race/tailgate/bait me into speeding. Said person is either in a Corolla or similar vehicle, or a Pep Boys special domestic or import.

I guess it doesn't help that I own one of the more flashier colors available and that I am only 25. Lots of older people are not friendly to me and give me looks at red lights.

I don't get the finger like I get " SLOW DOWN" from pedestrians in their driveways (not endangering them). Even if I am going below the limit, I still hear it. It just sounds like I am speeding.

yah, last weekend (was it?) some newer M3 pulled up next to me at a light and just floored the living schit out of his car for some reason making a buzzing noise near redline.. i just accelerated normally and watched him arrive early to the next red light...

then about 3sec later a jetta that was behind the M3 blew past me and cut me off and made a turn into a supermarket. wow, that was like 4 fails in a row... driving a jetta, 3 seconds too slow, cutting people off, then turn into a supermarket on a sunny afternoon...all while i drove normally and watched silly people do silly things.

i went home, QD'ed my car, enjoyed playing with my new camera and computer, had a nice supper with my wife and kids and just enjoyed the rest of my day.

bottomline, some folks have a need to prove something cause they are empty inside.

I don't really get much negativity from other people in the z...it has been mostly thumbs up's that I've gotten.

Now the s2k attracted a lot of ricers...but that was my fault for hanging an intercooler out like that.

I've gotten this. I was driving down a neighborhood street looking for a house number and going about 15 in a 20. This guy walks out infront of me so I stop. He says to me that there are kids playing in the street and I need to slow down. I told him I going under the speed limit and he just tought his 3 yr old that it's ok to walk out infront of moving vehicles.

People do drive like idiots around me now that I'm driving a Z. Yesterday a Statey drove onto the oncoming lane to pass me on a local one lane highway while I was doing 65 on a 55. This doesn't bother me as much as the stare downs at red lights.. The best piece of advice my dad ever gave me was to never make eye contact with other drivers, but if you do, smile.
