IV'e had a couple a holes try and mess with me. The worst or maybe the funniest was this guy pulled up along beside me on interstate. i was doing about 70-75 and he's driving this piece of crap ford f150 like a 1975 model revs his engine up and wants to jack with me. i just laughed at him and looked away.


but to be honest i think we all have a little bit of an ego. which could be one of the many reasons we bought a Z. which screams hey look at me.............

I had a friend in high school who lived in East Baltimore, in a not-so-nice neighborhood. His neighbor had an NRA sticker on their car and kept empty ammunition boxes in the back seat. That car was never touched.

The best way to keep these morons driving crappy cars from messing with you is drive faster than them. They'll never catch you.

Yeah well I dont live in the ghetto, or in a bad area, infact I live in a upper-middle class commuinty, and even the highway I commute to has mostly people from my town and neighboring travelling to Hartford (the capital of CT) where most ppl are at desk jobs...so its not like im dealing with no good, drop out bums, its educated to highly educated folks acting a fool as well. So I dont really think geography and demographics really plays a role in this, although im sure there are much more higher end cars in So Cal, and way more Ferraris and Lambos running round, but people are people no matter where you go, and attitudes wont change.

This kinda reminds me of the lady who flipped me off, but she was a tad bit older.

I've never had a lot of what has been mentioned happen. Mostly because I think people have less respect or are less willing to talk to me once they realize a young looking guy is driving. 50% of the time, older people give me the "look at that spoiled brat" type stare. I am extremely lucky and privileged to have parents that helped me buy it (did a half/half deal) but I never take it for granted.


Young women love it though, I cruise with my brother by the beach in Newport and I have got a number of thumbs up from chicks. My favorite was this pretty girl in a semi-riced Civic; I did a little WOT pull and passed her on the highway and once we both stopped at a light in town, she kept looking and smiling. I waved and she said that was awesome, it made my night for sure!

Absolutely right on that...No one gives a crap about my car in L.A. other than some enthusiasts who give a head nod or a thumbs up.

Woah there...I think you missed my point. I never implied that you lived in a poor neighborhood, nor did I imply that those around you were "no good drop out bums". When I spoke of demographics, I didn't mean socioeconomic status, but rather ethnic background. My assumption is that your area has less Asians compared to where I live, L.A., therefore you stand out more, and probably the reason the nice white lady flipped you off for no reason. (I could be wrong, maybe you cut her off or did something else to piss her off that you didn't realize.)

I'm Asian and I drive a Z, just like you, however I don't experience any of the things you described in your OP. So the variables in this equation seems to be area (geography) and people (demographics) that has lead to our vastly different experiences in Z ownership. Sorry if you misunderstood my point...didn't mean to offend.

Hmm...you bring up a valid point, true there are fewer Asians where I live, however, its not like we are uncommon. Every 4 of 10 people are Asian. So I don't see why it would even be a demographic thing either..I still feel you cant generalize it because whether you are black, white, hispanic, asian, doesnt matter, this type of behavior happens because of people we now call haters. plain and simple...people who dont like to see other people succeed in life, and when they do they make sure they give u a hard time about it. Cuz wats to say another asian wont do the same thing? I get what you are saying in differencces in owining a Z where u live and where I live but I bet there are just as much people that probably hate over there, just not to u. Its human nature I guess, sad but becasue of the economy and other issues people really have resorted to this type of behavior in order to express their jealously towards others. and about the lady who flipped me off, it might have been because of something else that I failed to recognize but as far as I remember I did nothing wrong.
