Aggressive driving will piss people off. I had a guy rage really hard the other day when I wouldn't let him cut me off to get in the left lane, after he came flying up in the right lane, passing like a dozen cars. He tried to fight me at the red light... I lol'd and rode off. Motorcycles fit between cars a lot better than a Dodge Durango

It's possible that you're getting the finger because people think you're driving aggressively or cutting them off.

Usually for me it's tailgating, cutting me off and my most favorite ricer fly by.
The older folks always roll their windows down and compliment my z it's usually the younger folks driving like maniacs.

I hate when motorcycles go in-between me and another car. I had one squeeze between me and an accord. We were on the highway about 80 mph and the motor cycle came flying through use like we were standing still. The accord jerked around a bit in his lane and I thought we would end up in an accident with the bike. I think the accord didn't see the bike coming up on us and was surprised when he was between use.

I haven't noticed anyone particularly aggressive towards the Z and most give me space. When I had the white Altima, people acted like it was invisible... cutting me off, no blinkers, merging into my lane without warning. And I only put about 30 miles on it! I was happy to be back in the Z!!!

Yeah, splitting lanes @ 80mph is stupid, but in all honesty, the Accord driver is just as much at fault for not being aware of their surroundings. I only split lanes at intersections, when everyone else is stopped, and only if I'm at the back of the pack. If I get rear ended by some moron not paying attention, I could get seriously hurt. I could even die. If a car gets rear ended, it's usually nothing more than whip lash. I'm going to assume the dude was riding a sport bike aka crotch rocket?

In my situation, I had 3 choices.

Let this angry dude control the situation (No way is that ever happening)
Fight him
Leave

When I was younger, I would have probably puffed my chest out and told him he needed to get back in his car and leave before I got angry. Now that I'm older, I don't need any of that B.S. I chose to just leave because I don't need to get in trouble for road rage just because this dude sucks at driving. Besides, I literally got the last laugh haha.

Doesnt happen a lot here cuase the people are more civilized (yeah right)

Anyways one time i was driving home from work and the route i choose is a one-lane canyon road cause there are lots of corners and turns that made driving more enjoyable.

So anyways i was on the road that merges to the single lane canyon road and some dumbass on a STI cuts me off, to a point where i have to hard steer to the left shoulder. (he sped up so he can overtake me on the merge when i have the right of way) long story short, i managed to overtake him and i wad driving at 25 mph the entire way. Took me 30 mins to get home but it was well worth it.

He kept flashing his high beams and honking but i just turn the volume and and ignore him.

A bunch of douchebags were in a 92 Corolla - all 5 of these douche nozzles packed into that sardine can - talking sh*t at the light. They were 4 lanes away from me, but they were talking sh*t trying to goad me into flooring the car off the light.

I just pretended like the music was loud enough that I didn't hear them. But Christ, what a bunch of f*cking goons. Keep your mouth shut if you're talking out of your friend's busted asss Corolla.

I had a lady pull up next to me the other day in her late 40s early 50s prolly, and give me the finger....I dont know why but by the way she zoomed off and looked at my car in disgust I was like uhhh...really? Are people really that much haters....I find it funny, but then when the cops get in on it its not. One cop decided to follow me down a road then he pulled up next to me, gave the glance then shaked his head...then before the light turned green he floored it ( and went no where) but still managed to leave me at the red light confused. Has anyone else experienced this type of behavior since you have gotten a Z, I mean sheesh I know its a nice car and all....but relax people. Also ESPECIALLY other tuners, or muscle cars act the most annoying...sorry mustang lovers but all u mustang pppl (especially the older ones before 2002ish) always try to "race" me, even when im just cruising on the highway. They intentionally tailgate me and then speed off...like im suppost to chase them? I dont mean to intetnionally show off, I can afford it so I drive it. Never had this problem when I had my T-bird....I wonder what has changed.....
This has nothing to do with the fact that you are driving a Z, but everything to do with geography and demographics. Most of what you talked about does not happen at all in So. Cal. Maybe the occasional bone head will want to race...but all the other stuff just doesn't happen here. The Z is just another car on the highway, nothing special. Now in the boonies...that's another story.

I've seen the same behavior too...I had one moron in an econobox cut in front of me and then speeding off using a highway exit lane. Unfortunately for him, there was a cop not too far behind and he got pulled over lol
