I drive EVERYBODY'S car. LOL!

By Crazyfast79TA

It seems that the Trans Am that can't win any trophies at local shows or even get attention there is everybody's car. A customer's wife said "it's about time 'my car' surfaced again". Gary told me it was nice of me to keep "his car" running good after church Sunday. Deandre at O'Reilley's said it nice of me to bring "her car" back to her. Random people tell me they had "a car just like that" when they were younger. I get people telling me "nice car" all the time. To me it's just "my car". It's not a show piece. It's a 20/20 car. 20 feet away, 20 miles per hour, it looks great! Get up on it and the faults show. I built it to drive and enjoy. It seems other people find enjoyment in it too. I've had it since 1999 and don't plan on getting rid of it any time soon.

Because I drive mine and not let them just sit around, mine are not perfect ethier.....but seems I just can't walk away with a 1st place trophy....as "Get Smart" would always say...missed it by THAT much ! I have decided I would rather have fun driving them than win.

Hey my Camaro is the same way. It will never be a trophy winner but it gets tons of looks and attention. I drive it when ever I can afford to put gas in it! 6 MPG. Hopefully the Stude will be the best of both worlds. Just keep taking care of my car there.

That's great. I get the same kind of attention when I drive my 76. Trophies don't matter its how it makes you feel when you drive it and work on it.
