Kids

There have been many instances where I saw little kids looking at and pointing at my Boxster when i'm driving.

Saturday night, a 2-3 year old baby girl who barely walks and talks pointed at my parked Boxster and said "RACECAR!!!"

Does anyone else have similar experiences.

Sometimes I get that, or kids staring intently in traffic.

Then again, once I was driving my dad's '91 964 Targa with the top off. At a stoplight, I heard a little kid say "Mommy! That's an ugly car! That red car! Isn't that an ugly car, mommy?" The 911 was the ONLY red car at the light. I looked back over at them with a face, and I think she tried to shush her kid after that.

Never had any kids that young comment, but I live down the street from a elementary school and around the corner from the junior high and boys 8-13 would yell and cheer for my car quite frequently.

Oh yaa, I know that look.

Its that I'm in the mood for you to spend lots of money on me look...

That's the difference between mature and young girls, young girls have not figured out how far you can push and are happy with an outing to Olive Garden vs driving to the ends of the earth to some fancy place that charges ridiculous prices for minuscule sized portions for the mature lady.

I had a neighborhood kid hanging out in my driveway with other kids, watching me move rocks. Being the car afficianado in training of the group, he proclaimed "oooohhh look that guy has a Bugatti".

Made me chuckle, but I had to burst his bubble.
