Hope you don't mind the occasional post as I share various experiences.

#362 is getting driven daily now that I sold my 2007. I have had two occasions this week where I found a group of youths taking photos with the car. The logical response, I offered to open up the car and let them take selfies. Priceless responses!

Have I ever seen or heard of a Porsche, Ferrari, or Lamborghini owner doing the same? Never. Just the opposite, owners yelling at the kids to get away. Is it just me? No. I remember as a kid having a similar opportunity to sit in a C3.

This is why Corvette owners are better people.

(wink!)

I agree the young person in us comes out immediately and relates to young people just as we were in awe of the car. Were the salt of the earth.

My Gallardo, both R8's and my Stingray Z51 all have the same effect on crowds. I have never hesitated to accommodate them by opening the doors and even popping the hood when possible. Supercar owners tend to have bad reputations — but not in my little corner of the world. Glad I'm not the only one doing something about it.

I came back home from our club meet today and had to park on the curb to move my daughters car so I could put the stingray in the garage. I move her car and I go in the house open the garage and when I walk out a neighbor and his 8 year old son a few houses down was walking away from the car back to their house. I get in the car and start to back into my driveway and I see them watching. I pull the car out of the driveway to the front of their house and asked the little guy if he wants to,ride in the vette. The father and the kid went nuts and thought it was awesome. The reaction on the kids face when he got in the car and when we were going down the road and I punched it was priceless. When we came back the grandfather, father, and mother were waiting for us and I told them to take a picture of the kid in the car. They couldn't thank me enough for taking him for a ride and the little guy and grandfather knuckle bumped when I drove off. Oh I had the top off to and the kid couldn't say how cool,it was enough!

Took a picture of a "kid" next to my car on Wednesday. Let him sit in it too. He was so very excited, this was the 1st C7 he had seen in real life. He thanked me and said he couldn't wait to get home to his wife and show her! Nice guy! He was 63.:)

Kid followed me home, got out of his car and stood in the street at the end of the driveway, watching me back into the garage. I invited him to sit in the drivers seat. He said he had been looking for a dealership where they had a C7 that he could look at. Of course they are 99% sold when they hit the dealership. I never got to sit in one until my car arrived. He was pretty excited about it, took a few pictures.
